One more freebie today:)

Sight words are on my brain....

I need to focus on getting my middle and lower kiddos to be proficient at sight words for my PLC (Professional Learning Community) data work, so here is a sight word practice activity I'm planning for tomorrow during reading centers.

Students will first have fun writing the sight word on one of these "finger paint" bags (hair gel, glitter, food coloring).

Then they will write the word three times on this sight word sheet. Finally, they will use it in a sentence. I have been trying to stress word spacing, punctuation and proper capitalization, so hopefully writing some sentences with familiar words will help with that skill, too. The other page is for my bottom 3 students that are still having major struggles picking up sight words.

Click EITHER link below to download your own copy of the practice lists! :)

Please leave a comment if you download either sheet.



  1. I was just talking with my principal about sight words for my lower kids. Thanks for the additional support in showing appropriate spacing. :)

  2. The fingerpaint bag is a great idea! I know the kids would love writing words on that!
