Free printable sight words worksheets and activities for preschool, kindergarten, and first grade.
Below you will find all the sight words worksheets and printables from around Planes&Balloons.
Whether you have a preschooler at home who is just starting to read their first words or a beginner reader, sight words are a great way to encourage their efforts!
Teaching sight words helps promote literacy as well as reading and spelling fluency in later grades.
All the worksheets and activities below are designed around the Dolch sight words list, which includes the most common 315 words in 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.
