Worksheets for children make learning many things easier. The following free printable worksheets involve Pre-K sight words. Children will need ample opportunity to learn the sight words.
There are 220 Dolch sight words and 95 nouns. All the words can only be learned over time and using a variety of learning materials. Many sight words cannot be sounded out in the traditional way and cannot be illustrated either, so they must be memorized.
This means that children must be given ample opportunity to see and read the words. The free worksheets below will be helpful for the words one, red, run, jump, two, blue, wear, yellow, make, see, can and up. The more that children can see, read and write the words, the more likely they are to retain the information they have learned.
Each of the free printables allows your child to trace the word 3-4 times. There is additional space to write the word. Then they will read and complete two sentences using the sight word.
Encourage a child to learn:
There are many ways to encourage a child to learn without being obvious about it. One of the easiest ways is to have alphabet letters handy. Foam letters for the bathtub or magnetic letters on the fridge. Kids will look at the letters, learn to identify them and eventually will be spelling words with them.
Keep a bin or basket full of easy reader books in an area where children are. Thrift stores are a great place to find tons of books. Place the basket in their bedroom, a playroom, a corner of the living room. Eventually a child will wander over to check out the books.
Play games that involve learning but are so much fun for kids they'll never see it as a chore. Use alphabet cards to play match game, go-fish or spoons.
Hide alphabet cards all around your house. Let them be found naturally by your child. Act surprised when the first card is found. Identify the letter with your child. When a second card is found act surprised again and ask in a mumble, "Where did these come from? Are there any more?". That should be all it takes to have your child off and running. At this point, get excited with your child every time a card is found and the letter is identified. You can also use this system for sight words.
