This mat was given to my son a few years ago from my mother-in-law. It came from Home Depot. I just printed out sight word flashcards from education.com. You could type the words out yourself, use store bought flashcards or handwrite them. Whatever works for you. Just place the flashcards on the mat and you are ready to play!
Taking turns, I call out a sight word and my kids "drive" their matchbox car to the word that I called out. It's as simple as that, and they love it! My son also likes to take turns and call out the words to me and I get to "drive".
You could use this game for math facts, vocabulary words, spelling words, etc. The possibilities are endless!
There you have it! A smart and simple way to teach while playing!
