Teaching sight words helps promote literacy as well as reading and spelling fluency in later grades. The majority of worksheets and activities below are designed around the Dolch sight words list, which includes the most common 315 words in the English language (220 “service” words and 95 nouns).

Sight words are divided into groups for each grade, so children can build their high frequency words vocabulary continuously.

So far, I’ve created activities and sight words worksheets for grades pre-k to grade 1. And I keep making new ones, so make sure to come back and get more of my free printables.
