Sight Words and a FREEBIE!

Sight words, sight words, sight words! This is something that we all work so hard on with our students. I truly feel sight words is one of the best uses of time we spend helping children learn how to read. I recently learned that sight words account for 75% of the words used in beginning children's printed material!
The benefits of teaching sight words and students learning sight words are amazing.
- Promotes confidence
- Helps promote reading comprehension.
- Allow students to take on the more challenging words.
- Provides clues to the meaning of the text.
- Enhances ESL instruction
- Build upon each other and a foundation for reading more complex words.

We go over our sight words so much that I swear I dream about sight words some nights! I hope my students do too!
There are so many different ways to go about teaching sight words. The ideas are endless!

I am always trying new ways to get those sight words to stick!! I wanted to do some activities with my students that included different hands-on, interactive, and engaging skills to not only get those sight words to stick, but also to have fun while learning them! 

I recently created 3 different sight word activities. Each of the activities require absolutely NO PREP! Just print and go!!

Here are the activities:
1. Sight Word Practice Pages
                

   

   
Each page focuses on the following activities:
Spell the Sight Word- color the star each time it is spelled correctly.
Trace and Write the Sight Word- great handwriting practice
Rainbow Write the Sight Word- great handwriting practice 
Find and Color– color the correct spelling of the sight word
Fill the Missing Letter(s)- determine and write the missing letter to make the sight word complete.
Build the Sight Word- cut and glue the mixed letters to spell the sight word correctly.
Read the Sight Word- color the star each time it is read correctly


2. Sight Word Puzzles
                

   

   

Each page focuses on the following activities:
Trace and Write the Sight Word- great handwriting practice
Build the Sight Word Puzzle– cut and glue the mixed letters to spell the sight word correctly. A mystery picture will form! Students will use this picture to help them read the sentence.
Fill the Missing Sight Word- Write the missing sight word in the sentence to make the sentence complete.
Read the Sentence- color the star each time the sentence is read correctly.

3. Sight Word Hats

      




Each sight word hat focuses on the following activities:
• Rainbow Write or Color the Sight Word- great handwriting practice 
• Trace the Sight Word- practice spelling and handwriting practice
• Build the Sight Word– cut and glue the mixed letters on to the hat to spell the sight word correctly.
 

There are 3 sets for each of the activities above. The sight words included in these activities are from the Dolce and Fry's lists.
Set 1 includes 57 sight words.

Set 3 includes 57 sight words.

  1. Amazing idea. Actually we all need to make a change in the way of teaching. We need to develop reading habit within the students. Then only the will become familiar with writing. Most of the students are depending to some online writing service. Many websites providing essay writing company reviews . They will read the reviews and choose one writing service to complete their work. Then what is the use of these tasks. So we all need to make a change in the way of teaching. Nice post.
