Create a pokey pinning literacy center and hang sunlight sight word catchers in your classroom. Work on developing fine motor skills at the same time as working with sight words.

These easy reader pokey pin templates have either: a simple sight word, sight word phrase or sight word sentence and a single picture. Students poke through the template onto a piece of construction paper stapled behind to create stunning sunlight catchers.

It's an easy literacy center activity for kindergarten to teach and use all year long!

- 40 printable pokey pinning templates*
- 40 editable pinning templates (Compatible with Powerpoint/Google slides)
- Blank pokey pin template
- Center poster
- Workboard icon
- Picture directions
- Teacher tips
- Organization labels
- Sight word list index

Sight words included:
I, me, my, the, like, a, see, so, to, am, an, and, at, do, he, no, we, in, it, is, can, up, she, go, these, down, they, said, are, there, day, love, look, this, have, you, here, play, blue, red, yellow, brown, orange, purple, black, pink. This list matches all words in my Sing to Learn Sight Words Songs.

Note: The editable pinning templates have the same 40 pictures as the printable pokey pinning templates. You simply create the text to fit your sight words or reader levels. Add your own text (and black and white outline clipart) on the blank template to make your own. Never run out of sheets for this center!

*A handful of pages has students draw a simple picture to match the pokey pinning text. They pin this picture and turn out really cute!

You'll see fine motor skills improve greatly over time as students begin to poke holes closer and closer together creating a more stunning and revealing picture. Get more tips for a pokey pin center in kindergarten.
