These kindergarten sight word sentences are designed to help kids build confidence with early literacy skills. Research shows that seeing sight words in context helps children retain sight words more easily.
These sight word pages can be used for morning work, as an independent center, or for homework. In addition to teaching sight words, the lines and spacing help children with their handwriting and learn about concepts of print.
This packet includes the following 25 words: did, are, all, come, had, for, boy, girl, his, her, if, day, jump, look, ball, man, has, as, be, how, get, got, him, by, & eat.
I print these pages front to back for easy use. I use these pages to introduce a new sight word. The following is a typical way I teach using these pages: I show the word, then ask students to read the word aloud. Next, we chorally spell the letters in the word. I model writing each word whispering each letter, then reading the word once it is spelled. On the lines below the traced word I ask my students to write the sight word four times independently.
When introducing the sentence side, I teach the sentence and have students read aloud with me multiple times. We look for words we know and sound out the c-v-c words. These sentences are designed to be simple and often build my students sight word knowledge. I model tracing the sentence and on the blank lines below the tracer sentences I encourage students to write their own sentence using the focus sight word. This may be difficult for some students, so I also accept it if they copy the sentence from above.
