Kindergarten Sight Words Worksheets
As my 5 year old daughter started Kindergarten in her private school… She started to word list that we needed to work through. Being a mom of 3 kids and my experiences with my other two children who also needed to learn sight words I came up with some fun interactive sight word worksheets that I thought would be fun to use. My goal here was to try and have my daughter see the sight word a few times versus just repeating the sight word after me. I wanted her to take notice of each letter that made up the sight word so I could hopefully ingrain it in her brain a bit more. That’s why I came up with this sight word printable activity pack. The worksheets set is called Sight Word Detectives… because children have to look and be aware of each word and the letters that make up the word.
I already have a pack of worksheets for the FRY First hundred Kindergarten Sight Words but the format is different and I wanted to work through the Dolch Sight Words List.
Tools required for the Kindergarten sight word worksheets:
Please note that affiliate links are used in this post. Please see my disclosure policy for more information.
- Paper We go through a ton of this paper each month. My kids use it for drawing and crafting too.
- Crayons (I love twistable crayons)
- Do A Dot Markers
You may be wondering, but why so many tools for one worksheet?
This is such a simple answer. I chose to add multiple tools to be used with this Kindergarten sight words worksheets set because I wanted it to be more fun. How much work do your students or children do with their crayons and pencils? Too much! My daughter rarely ever uses a highlighter and so I thought it would be fun to include its use in the worksheets. I also love having Do A Dot markers an my daughter enjoys using them so I added that in too. If a child doesn’t have Do A Dot Markers then don’t worry, just have them color it in.
I have included a Kindergarten sight words list set. One of the pages includes all the sight words. The other pages include lists separated into 10 sight words and 5 sight words depending on how many you want a child to work on weekly/monthly.
I have also included sight word flash cards and a Read Build Write Mat for children to work through.
For the Kindergarten sight words worksheets I used a similar format like the one I used in my very popular Alphabet Worksheets and Numbers 1-10 Worksheets . Knowing that the format has been tried and tested with children I knew I wanted to extend upon those worksheets for an older child who may already be familiar with those packs.
There are 40 sight word worksheets included in the sight words printable pack. I do not have my daughter do all the worksheets. I only have her do the ones that I know she is having difficulty with. This makes those challenging words a little more fun to work with and it keeps the worksheets from being too repetitive.
Here is how I set out the activity for her.
Here is an example of what it looks like when the worksheets are completed.
