It is important for young readers to instantly recognize words by sight in order to build reading fluency. It is also important for readers to practice words in meaningful context through phrase and sentence reading practice.
This Sight Word Practice Book (includes Dolch word lists 6-11) is great to help reinforce the identification of common sight words without the need for “drill and kill”! Students are motivated to read the words to make their own book to take home. They love coloring the pictures when they have finished with their page.
Students (1) read the word

, (cut and paste the letters in the correct order in the provided boxes) , (3) write the word

, in a phrase or sentence. Students then write their own sentence using the focus word on the back of the page.
Directions for making the book are included. For your convenience, we have made 2 books per page. Simply print the pages, cut down the middle of the page to form 2 books and staple the half pages together.
