DID YOU KNOW? The Dolch list of sight words, first published by Edward William Dolch, Ph.D. in his book, , in 1948, is a list of the 220 most common words in the English language, excluding the Dolch nouns. The list makes up from 50 to 75 percent of all ordinary reading material excluding proper names. They are arranged in order according to frequency of occurrence.*
These reproducible handwriting sheets are designed to provide students with multisensory practice as they trace and write 5-6 sight words per page.
Students should be encouraged to work carefully and slowly from the top of the page to the bottom of the page, working each row from the left to the right. I strongly encourage you to directly model this process by using a projection device, such as an Elmo or an overhead projector. Remind students that when they print, letters begin from the top to the bottom and that NO printed letter is formed from the bottom up. An organizational chart lists the specific words included on each of the 40 handwriting practice sheets.
Included at the end of this resource are three handwriting print models that can be used as a reference. A set can be laminated and made available in a word study or writing center. A copy can be added to writing folders. It may be helpful to send home a copy of the model you use in class as a reference for parents, too!
