Sight word phrases and sentences allow students to recognize sight words in context, which can increase reading fluency and word recognition.
I created these phrases/sentences using the 220 Dolch sight words. The words have been spread over 32 weeks of instruction (6-7 word per week). Of course, you can adjust to your own pace. The units also lend well to differentiation.
Each sight word has 5 phrase strips. That’s 1100 phrases/sentences total! Each strip is labeled with the unit and week for easy organizing. Two games are also included. These are great for centers and interventions.
The sight word strips slowly build a robust sight word vocabulary using only words that students have already been exposed to. For example, the first set of sentences utilize only 7 sight words. The second set of sentences use those 7 words plus 7 more. By the final unit, students should recognize all 220 Dolch Words. A few basic CVC words (ex. cat, big, top) are also utilized.
