But I thought you might appreciate not needing to write all the words out on 3x5 notecards... Am I right?
I probably am. Time is often at a premium as parents. At least it always is for me. So I made a Google Doc that has all the sight words on 8x11.5 (i.e. standard letter size) paper. You can print them out and save yourself time.
I highly recommend laminating these before you cut them out as it will let them last longer. Yes, you will have to cut them out. No, I did not include cutting lines -- I didn't know how. Fold in half lengthwise and widthwise to get cut lines.
Best of luck!
To read the previous post: 40 Kindergarten Sight Words
Here's a list of my eldest's favorite books THAT SHE COULD READ by the end of Kindergarten.
Note: she still needed help with some of the words, but she could recognize and read the majority of them. We read these books aloud.
Little Critter and the Level 1 series of Step Into Reading books seemed to be winners. When I'm looking for books for her to read, I try to keep them limited targeted at 1 to 2 shorter sentences on a page.
The Tooth Fairy's Night and A Green, Green Garden are at the harder end of her reading level. There's less repetition of the same words. Granted, she did enjoy Green, Green Garden because of the color words.
The collection of books above can be hard to come by. I HIGHLY recommend them. EG first came home with them from her teacher's library. We got our copies from a homeschooling friend with kids of similar ages. I was shocked she parted with them. They are funny and cute, high on the repetition side.
I hope this list helps you teach your little learner to read. Remember to keep a high volume of repeating words. The more practice they get recognizing the same words, the faster they'll memorize them and be ready to move on to new words.
