Sight Word Printables

Learning to quickly and accurately read high-frequency sight words with confidence will help new readers gain reading fluency.

Storytime Standouts shares High Frequency Sight Word Printables for Beginning Readers

We recommend parents and teachers introduce high-frequency sight words very gradually, just a few words at a time and in order. These words should not be “sounded out” but should be read instantly from memory. 

Once children have been introduced to sight words, they should have opportunities to practice reading them (daily if possible) until they are recognized and read “instantly.” Our flashcards and games can help to reinforce this important learning.

Most reading instruction with beginning readers involves a combination of sight word instruction and phonics.

Simple, easy to use sight word games for home practice

Let’s talk about some very simple ways to use these printable sight words with a child

  • Print two copies of one list (10 words), cut the words apart and mix them up. Have your child put the word pairs together. Talk about how the words are alike and different. Look for all the three letter words, the two letter words, etc. Notice words that start with the same letter or end with the same letter. In other words, help your child to notice how the words are alike and different.
  • Print our sight words dominos (below) and have your child make a train of words across a table or floor. Share your child’s excitement as the train of sight words gets longer and longer (as he learns to read more and more words).
  • Print two copies of one list (10 words), cut the words apart and turn them upside down. Try to find the matching words. When your child has mastered two lists, try playing with 20 words.
  • When your child knows enough Sight Words from memory, put two or three together and ask your child to read the phrase. Your child could put phrases together for you to read too!
  • Hide words all over the room or all over your house. Have your child find the words and then read them to you.

If you are using these materials with more than one child, we recommend printing them onto cardstock and laminating them. If you would like to easily sort the words by the level of difficulty, using different colors is helpful.
