Sight Words for Preschool
Learning sight words in pre-k is the start to a wonderful future reader.
This Dolch Pre-Primer sight words list includes 40 pre-primer words that are part of the Dolch pre-primer sight words list.
These free sight word printable worksheets can be used for on the go, while on vacation or even when you are right at home (whether homeschooling) or in a school setting.
These sight word worksheets work on one word within each sheet.
We like to use 2-3 sight word worksheets within and around the week.
Once my little has mastered those 2-3 sight words, we move on to an additional 2-3 sight words and so on and so forth.
Each of the sight word worksheet sheets work on:
Say the word and then decorate it.
Trace the sight word.
Dot the correct sight word.
Write the sight word in the boxes.
Then, write it out on the traced line.
These 6 activities within each sight word worksheet are perfect for little learners to master the Dolch Sight Word Worksheets for preschool, pre-k and kindergarten.

We love to add the sight words within index cards for on the go.
Bring out children’s books that work on sight word lists and create an epic reading program for beginning readers.
Each of the sheets work on different words so creating fun ideas that work with any play based learning is a win!
This first list of sight words can also be used to create sentences.
Create a sentence with high-frequency nouns following sight words and basic decoding rules.
This is a wonderful technique to use for building a sentence with simple words, in kindergarten classrooms.
If you have a little learner who is almost at the end of kindergarten, bring out this Dolch sight word list along with the Kindergarten Dolch Sight Words List for creating easy lesson plans.
Create a memory game, use flash cards or work on phonemic awareness along side these to set up a simple way of teaching your early readers.

Print and Go Sight Word Worksheets
We love these free printable worksheets for many reasons.
But, one of the main things we love about these sight word worksheets is that they require absolutely no prep and you can just print and go!
We also love that these preschool sight words worksheets are b&w (black and white) so you can save on colored copies.
I also like to think when printables are colorless there are less distractions sometimes too.
It goes straight to the point and learning is fun in this way too.
I’ve found that little learners learn the different lists of words at a rapid speed when there are less distractions on the page.
These are all effective ways of teaching new things and we love the outcome – a good reader.
Free Printable Sight Words Worksheets
What I love about these pre-k sight word worksheets are that each of the pre primer worksheets work on a specific word in 6 different ways.

Hand eye coordination
Fine motor skills

How to use the Sight Word Worksheets
For starters, we like to say the first word on the page.
Note: The sight words are in the alphabetical order.
Then, because the sight word is a bubble letter, we like to decorate it with either colored pencils, glue and pom poms and/or kid markers.
Once we have finished decorating our sight word, we move on to tracing the sight word.
Then, we work on using a dot marker to mark all of the correct sight words that we are working on on the sight word worksheets.
Writing it within the boxes comes next and it is so much fun visually seeing that each letter has a different sound as we write it within the boxes.
Now the fun part, I’ve included a simple pop it activity.
Use your finger or a marker to mark the sight word within the pop it activity.
There is extra space for adding extra letters if you’d like.
After that, write out the sight word on the traced line.
Each sight word worksheet allows for the child/student to practice and learn the same sight word in a fun way! 🙂
For any unknown words, we set those aside and work on those at a later time.
Similar words or common words are set out side by side to differentiate between the two groups of words.
Tip: Add the sight words into the word cards to save a lot of time when bringing the list on the go.
Set unknown word cards aside for attempting to learn at a different time.
Working on the Fry word list alongside these is common.
If you have the Fry sight words list, practice with those if you’d like to as well.
