Your kids will love Sight Word Construction!
This pack contains one activity mat for each of the 40 words in the Dolch Pre-Primer sight word list, 52 words in the Dolch Primer list, and newly updated with 12 extra words from the Fountas and Pinnell sight word lists. 104 mats in all!

These sight word construction activity mats are designed for center, morning work, or independent literacy work. They practice a range of skills in one product-- sight word reading, writing, & sentence structure, and can be easily differentiated for all levels of early learners-- for both school and home use.

They can be used in a variety of ways:
*Copy and laminate activity mats. Place paper on a cookie sheet. Students read the word, build it with magnets, trace it with a dry erase marker, use it in a sentence by tracing and reading the sentence, and then write the sentence in the space underneath. To differentiate, have students write their own sentence using the sight word in the “write” space. They can be wiped clean and reused for repeated use.

*If you would like this to be a single-use activity, these papers copy well in black and white by selecting “greyscale printing” when you go to your print menu. Students can then read, stamp the letters or use magazines and cut/paste letters to make the word, trace, read and write the sentence, and then copy the sentence on their own at the bottom.
