This freebie contains 2 sample sight word mats.
In the complete set you get:
- 17 color sight word mats in your choice of color or black and white
- 2 options for student recording sheets
The complete set covers Fry's list of the first 500 of the most commonly used words.
You can print the color set on white card stock or save ink and print the black and white mats on color cardstock. I like to use a different color for each of the levels.
I use these mats as a warm up at the guided reading table. Kids can grab a pencil and paper clip (to make a spinner) and start independently on their sight word practise, which gives you time to set up your lesson!
They also work great for
- Word Work time
- partner practice
- literacy centers
- read to self time
- working with an Educational Assistant
- working with an older buddy
Kids love the fun Ocean themed cards and are motivated to get to each new level.

Hope you enjoy this FREEBIE!
