Sidewalk Chalk Sight Word Tic-Tac-Toe


My little cherubs were out for the afternoon and I decided to set up a surprise for them – Sight Word Tic-Tac-Toe!  I moved the car out of the driveway and went to work.


I made tic-tac-toe boards and wrote two sight words beside or above each board.  One sight word would represent the X and the other sight word would be the O.  They picked a sight word to play with, having to read them both.


This was a fun way to spruce up our summer afternoon.  I was worried they wouldn’t want to play it.  When your mom is constantly making everything educational, it gets super boring.  However, they really enjoyed it and wanted to play.  I even put some homophone sight word pairs in there.  We briefly went over the meaning of each homophone pair, keeping it short and sweet.



This was a quick fun way to have fun outside, practice reading and sight words, and a little tic-tac-toe strategy.  It drives me nuts that they don’t try to block me or each other!

Happy Summer Chalking!
