Sight word tracing worksheets

I made these sight words worksheets with my first graders in mind. But you can use them with younger students in kindergarten or older students in other grades too!

Reading words and writing them are two related but separate skills children need to master. And even though my own kids are good readers, writing is a slow process. Therefore we practice writing one sight word at a time. And repeat to write it until they master it.

I consider mastery to be when they are writing short stories and they spell the sight words correctly without any prompting or correcting. This takes time, patience, and a LOT of practice!
