What Are Sight Words?

Sight words are exactly what they sound like…words readers automatically know when they see them. The reader has actually memorized the words to immediately recognize and read them without trying to say the letter sounds or use any other decoding strategy.

Why Do We Teach Sight Words?

Sight words are frequently used throughout text and once children learn them, it makes reading easier for them. They can then spend their energy on decoding more difficult words. Reading fluency and comprehension also begins to improve. Additionally, their confidence as a reader increases with every, “I KNOW THAT WORD!!”

Printable Worksheets

Each of these free printable kindergarten worksheets has six different activities to give beginning readers lots of practice working with the kindergarten words. Children will read the word, trace the word, build the word, write the word, rainbow write the word, and find and color the word.

The black and white worksheets are low ink printables to help you save on a hot commodity–your printer’s ink. Save even more ink by printing a set and putting them in sleeve protectors–Instant Word Work Center!

Differinate the worksheets and create six different small group or center activities with some card stock, lamination, and a pair of scissors! Print the sight word activity worksheets on cover stock, laminate some of them, and then cut the activities apart.

  • The ‘read the word’ activity becomes a set of flash cards or word wall words.
  • Use the ‘read the word’ activity and different Reading Materials for students to find words in text.
  • Dry erase markers or playdough can be used with the ‘trace the word’ activity.
  • Letter Magnets can be used to spell the words with the ‘build the word’ activity.
  • Dry erase markers make the ‘write the word’ activity perfect for small group time–you say the word or show the word and have them write it from memory or copy it for those students just learning the sight words.
  • ‘Rainbow write the word’ becomes a fine-motor skills center when children use beans, beads, small pompoms, or any other small manipulative to fill in the letters.
  • The ‘find and color the word’ sight words printable activity can be used as a check-for-understanding center where students color the focused kindergarten sight words of the center.
  • Make two copies of ‘read the word’ or ‘rainbow write the word’ for all sorts of additional fun Sight Word Games.
