Sight Words are a HUGE part of Kindergarten now that reading is so important.
I am always looking for ways to ensure that my students learn the sight words, but also need something that is easy to document for report card time.
So I came up with these Sight Word Flash Cards!
Each student gets started with a ring of Level 1 sight words (taken from the Dolch Sight Words list for K and 1st grades). I print the words on colored card stock and laminate them. Then cut and place on a ring. I color code the lists with the chart (so level one cards are white and the chart is white), this helps them remember what list they are on. I make a big deal of posting the charts too!
I have the students practice with each other, parents, teachers, volunteers, etc. Then they "Test". I mix up the words and have them identify that list of words. If they can identify all the words on the list then they get the next list.
After every 5 lists I have them do a spelling test! I find that students often can identify the word but have difficulty writing the words. When they can write all the words on a list then they get a star on the chart.
It is a great way to keep track of who knows what sight words!
I have made 11 lists of sight word cards with documentation lists. Check them out HERE!
