250+ FREE Sight Word Sentence Cards
Sight words, often called high frequency words, are words we want our learners to recognize immediately. Despite what you’ve may have been told, the majority of them do follow the phonics “rules” we teach our young readers and spellers.
But they appear so frequently in reading that we don’t our readers stopping to sound them out each time they see one. You can read more about this in my article, Phonics or Sight Words?

Each sight word card has the featured sight word at the top. At the bottom, there is a sentence with the sight word in bold. Each one also includes a simple picture that matches the sentence.
Because of their open-ended nature, there are TONS of things you can do with these. Here are just a few ideas, but you’re welcome to think of your own. If you do, I’d love to have you share your idea in the comments!
Copy onto cardstock, laminate, and hole-punch them and create simple sight word book flip books.
Learners can practice spelling the words with things like letter tiles, letter stamps, or magnetic letters. I even like to use old bottle caps!
Or learners can just read the sentences.
Hang your featured sight word(s) for the week on the wall or near your learner’s work area or at a center.
