Google Slide, PDF | 1 page | Grades: K - 1

Practice weekly sight words to strengthen letter-sound recognition, spelling, and reading fluency with six weeks of sight word homework worksheets.

Sight Word Homework Activities for Early Readers

Reading and writing skills start with letter-sound recognition

But after that…

Reading fluency is the result of a lot of repetition and memorization.    

Each weekly worksheet in this resource introduces a group of six words from the Dolch Pre-primer word list. Each weekly worksheet focuses on a specific group of words and includes a different daily activity.

Monday: students read, trace, and write sight words.

Tuesday: students read and complete a color by sight word activity.

Wednesday: students write the sight words in rainbow colors.

Thursday: students identify the correct spelling of the sight words when given a list of three different spelling options.

Students complete each weekly worksheet and demonstrate they can correctly read and spell grade-appropriate words.
