Listen to your first graders squeal with delight at every pop of a balloon in this sight words game.

For every sight word they choose correctly, such as 'into,' 'when,' and 'these,' Floyd’s hot air balloon will gain a bit more altitude.
Officer Ice Cream is relying upon first grade students to choose the correct sight word and freeze it out fast, before it puts Officer Ice Cream in a sticky situation. This game not only teaches silent E words, but other sight words as well. There is only one danger - your kids will love fantasizing about an ice cream cone as they play.
