Spot It! Basic English definitely held the students’ attention. They were determined to find the match and enjoyed verbalizing their thought process.

Spot it! Basic English boosts sight word recognition while having fun! This educational game features universal images and words for emergent readers, including sight words. There is always one, and only one, matching symbol between any two cards. Spot it to win! Players search for matches between a word and its corresponding picture, between two pictures, or between two words. While the repetition solidifies word recognition, the pictures support reading comprehension.

Note: GEI Reviewers suggest purchasing 2 -3 games for a typical size classroom.

Comments from other GEI teacher reviewers

"My students loved this game and it held their attention. It was competitive fun that they enjoyed. I would recommend this game for centers or word work time because it focuses on high frequency words. I have shared this game with other teachers in my building; we all feel it is a fun way for students to practice sight words and matching skills."

“My kindergarteners enjoy playing Spot It! The game is excellent because I can use it in multiple ways, and it held my students’ attention for so long. All learning levels can play and enjoy this game. This became my students’ favorite center. I even used this game as a quick assessment tool for my struggling reader and he loved it. “
