This packet consists of 5 activity sheets, 41 black/white word shape cards, and 41 color word shape cards. All 41 of the Dolch 1st Grade words are used throughout this set (after, again, an, any, as, ask, by, could, every, fly, from, give, going, had, has, her, him, his, how, just, know, let, live, may, of, old, once, open, over, put, round, some, stop, take, thank, them, then, think, walk, were, when).
Each activity sheet involves the student tracing the sight words and then finding the matching word shape to fill in the letters. The word shape cards provide a visual aid for the student. They can be printed on cardstock and laminated for the student to trace with a Vis-à-vis marker. They can also be enlarged for use on a Word Wall.
These provide great practice for students who are having trouble mastering basic sight words. Focusing on the shape of the word provides a memory aid and just may be the strategy you need for a struggling reader.
