⭐ I LOVE this resource! The ease of which I can quickly create sight word or word worksheets is amazing! They always align exactly with the words that I want to use. Love the selection. I only use three per week and am able to switch up the activity so the kids are always excited to work on their words! Thank you!

⭐ My students were very engaged by this resource.  I love the ability to differentiate worksheets for my students.  This resource allows you to set up students independently, in pairs and small groups.  It is truly an excellent resource for K-2 teachers.   

⭐ I LOVE THIS!!! This year my district decided to surprise teachers a week in and add sight words and high frequency words to the curriculum. This purchase allowed me to add in the words we were working on and generate several different worksheets and activities for my students. They cover different levels and are very easy to change up between the different learning levels of your students.
