Dolch words are a list of 220 “service words” developed in the 1940s by William Dolch. They consist of a series of eleven sets of words which are considered to be vocabulary which occurs most frequently in children’s reading material. Although some of the words in the lists can be sounded out phonetically, they really should be memorised as “sight words”.
These Loop Cards (sometimes called “Follow Me Cards) are based on the eleven Dolch Word Lists. They follow the format “I have …. / Who has ….” and they are aimed at helping pupils to memorise each Dolch list they are learning in a fun, game-based way. They are suitable for group work or for use at a literacy table during Station Work time. They could also be used with a whole class, although there are only 21 cards in each set.
This pack contains a Loop Game for all eleven sets of Dolch Words - four cards per A4 page, six pages per set. Each set has a different colour scheme and they are in order, starting with Set 1.
If you find that the cards are too large, set your printer preferences to print two pages per sheet. The cards would be best laminated to allow for use again and again.
