This PDF file includes:
2 Train Engines (facing opposite ways depending on which way you want the train to go).
All 40 Pre-Primer Dolch words (frequency order).
Print out the file. Cut out and laminate the engine and carriages.
In my classroom I have stuck pouches on the back of each carriage. When a student can read and write a word without prompting, they get a pop stick with a picture of their face or their name on it and place it in the pouch, making it look like they are riding the train. This allows students to visibly see their achievements and what they are working towards.
