Say It, Write It, Find It Sight Words

I have been trying to devise ways for my Kinder class to get right into sight words this term. I am going to trial Literacy Work Stations (you can read one of my ideas HERE) and thought that this little activity might be an easy independent activity the kids can complete with little assistance.


I had Miss M (5) try a couple of them out for me.
There are 22 different words to practice, all blacklines so it is easy to reproduce as many times as you need, send it for homework, for fast finishers, for literacy centres.....
Firstly, she read the word and the sentence. I have tried to use very easy to read words (sight words and cvc's) but in the event that there are some longer or more difficult words, they are supported by the graphic (AGAIN you can see how much I love Graphics from the Pond)
After reading the sentence, trace it.
Then write it on the lines! 
Then it is time to focus on the sight word (and yes, her sentence says The rainbow is is big. She wasnt happy with the squished 'is' and decided to write it again lol).
Now the picture gets some colour :)
And finally, find the words - there are 3 hidden in each grid, both horizontal and vertical.

This pack is similar to my Say It, Write It, Find It Letter Identification Pack.

If you would like to get one of these from me, leave a comment with your email and say how you could use it in the classroom. 
EDITED TO ADD: The lucky recipient of this pack was Amanda (#10)

  1. I have a little one who has a few difficulties in my second grade class who would benefit so much from a packet like this, Brooke! He loves short, simple and easy engaging activities. This would be perfect! Great job! PS LOVE Graphics From the Pond!!!

  2. I teach full day kindergarten to 26 four and five year olds. We do literacy centres every week and it's amazing what little sponges they are. This would be a great addition to my centres as it would encourage sentence reading. My email is Thanks so much!

  3. Love it, Brooke. This would be a perfect activity for my Literacy rotations (when I'm doing Guided Reading), especially for the little girl with autism in my class - we've got a heavy focus on recognising high frequency words, using them in sentences, etc. Also wouldn't hurt my preps! ;)

    Love your work. <3


  4. These are great! I would love to use these with my intervention group, especially my new ESL student who is really struggling with sight words! Great job!


  5. I would love to use these in my centers to provide reinforcement and practice with sight words. The children would be able to practice sight words independently with these sheets. Excellent resource!!!!!! :)

  6. This is amazing!! I will be moving to 1st grade next year and I find this to be a beneficial practice/study sheet to complete during literacy rotations during guided reading. What a great way to incorporate all the essential skills when transferring high frequency words from just knowing from sight!! Great job!!

  7. I would love to use these for my word work especially for my high kindergarteners.

  8. These are great Brooke - I can see myself using them during our word work activities each morning.


    PS - My kids LOVED playing your roll and cover games in numeracy rotations this week. I just need to get my hands on some 10 sided dice for the last activities!

    1. These are AWESOME! My Kinders would benefit from the extra pratice with those tricky sight words! I was thinking I could laminate them and use them in a center where kids could do them again and again! :)


  9. What a GREAT activity- this would really help my Title 1 students who are struggling with these tricky works~


  10. Just as many of my kindergarten students learn sight words fast, others need extra practice. This would provide some extra practice to those who need it.

  11. Thanks for commenting everyone :) Amanda, Miss M picked number10 so ill send you the file today :)

  12. This is great; my kids would definitely be able to use these in the word work center...

  13. Good Morning,

    These are fantastic! I would greatly appreciate a copy of these :)I have several Kindergartens who are struggling in this area and I am always looking for new and fun ways to introduce sight words to them. Thanks sooooo much!

    My email is

    Take care,

  14. I would use this at the beginning ot first grade. Its a great resource.
    Thank You.

  15. This would be wonderful for my students to use in their independent centers. I really enjoy your site!
    Thank you!

  16. These look fantastic!! I teacha year 2 class and have a hand full of students who barely have any sight words so they can't do much on their own. I think they might be able to fo these and LOVE them too!!


  17. I would love to use these in my Kinder special education classroom. This is a fun and interesting way for the kids to get extra practice. Great idea.


  18. Great work!! I plan to homeschool my daughter in the fall and she will be starting Kinder. This would be an excellent resource for her! 😊

  19. I would love to use these with my children in homeschooling! I have a kindergartener and a preschooler who would enjoy working on these while the oldest is using her language curriculum.

  20. These would be a great addition to the literacy centers in my K classroom! I like how the sight word is reinforced, as well as, having the students write a sentence. Thanks so much for sharing :)

  21. I love these. I would use them in my kindergarten word work centers!

  22. I teach 30 Kindergarten kids this year. I think they would love this activity. Great job!

  23. I am teaching kindergarten in the Migrant Summer School Program this summer. I am a 3rd grade teacher during the regular school year. I would love to use these activities in my sight word center.

  24. Our district is moving toward the Daily 5 model of teaching next year, and I am trying to gain more resources to use. My second grade team members and I are also planning on flexing during our language arts time, in which I will have the lower students. These would really help in my classroom to use with these students!
    Thanks so much!

  25. I love these! These would be great to use during our Morning Thinker time or during Literacy Workstations as an independent activity. Thank you for sharing. :)

  26. These are wonderful! I see myself using them as part of daily five and for homework. the more repetitions they hear the more HFW they will remember. Thank you,

  27. These are wonderful. I am moving to Kindergarten next year after teaching second grade for 15 years. I believe these would work well in my literacy center. Thank you.
