The sight words are in the order that I teach them throughout the year in my Kindergarten class. We use Harcourt Storytown and combine those kinder words with Dolch. Students gain fine motor skills while practicing sight words. Directions Print out the word pages. Students must: First read the word. Trace the word (Two versions of tracing dots – p. 4-14 and p.15-25) Cut out and glue the corresponding letters to build the sight word. Lastly, students must write the sight word.
