Learning Objective

Students will warm up for reading by practicing these phrases made of Dolch Pre-primer words.


Readers need warm ups, just like athletes and musicians!

Why use Dolch Preprimer Warm Up Phrases? Research tells us sight words are best learned in phrases. These basic sight words are repeated frequently in phrases to help children learn.

How it works: I always start readers with a warm up exercise that's below their instructional reading level. Experts say children should read words in phrases rather than in isolation. Reading these phrases for a few minutes will have the children warmed up and ready for more instruction. The phrases can be read from copied sheets, or can be cut out and read as individual phrases for shuffling. They also make a great center for individuals or for partners to practice as a team.

What’s included: This resource has 39 different Dolch Pre-primer words combined into 42 different phrases for sight word practice. Each phrase is colorful and fun to read. The children also enjoy extending the phrases to make complete sentences.
