Color By Number Sight Word Printables! (Pre-Primer)

HERE THEY ARE!!  I am VERY excited about these pre-primer color by number sight word printables since they provide a new way to introduce and teach sight words.

 You may also be interested in our Ready2Read program that combines both phonics AND sight words!  As an educator, I understand that children need both components to successfully learn how to read.

What is a sight word?  Sight words and High Frequency words are essentially the same.  They are words that kids should memorize and account for a large percentage of text that is read.  Here are some statistics:

  • 12 Sight Words make up 25% of those we read and write.
  • 100 Sight Words make up 50% of those we read and write
  • About 300 Sight Words account for 75% of those we read and write

Although many sight words are phonetically decodable, it helps to memorize these words so that the sense of what they are reading is not lost.  Therefore, it makes it much easier to focus on decoding less frequent words in a text.

The pre-primer (Dolch List) printables include: a, and, away, big, blue, can, came, down, find, for, funny, go, help, here, I, in, is, it, jump, little, look, make, me, my, not, one, play, red, run, said, see, the, three, to, two, up, we, where, yellow, you.

 Since we have been using the Bob Book series, her confidence has grown tremendously!!  I plan to make the next set of sight words available soon!  I hope they help your little one to enjoy learning and reading:-)

We are putting them into clear plastic sleeves and then into a binder so that we can take them out to make sentences.  The book also stacks nicely on your shelf:)

*NOTE:  since many color words are also sight words, I did not color code them so students have more practice with each sight word.  However, you could color code them yourself if you like:)

I have also made a primer set for the next level!

I see a big ball.
READING!!  A fun way to learn sight words.  
Great for kinesthetic learning (learns by doing).
I will be working on creating a Primer set of printables soon!
Also check out the the Level 1 Reading posts for more printables.

I love this idea! But I can't get the download to work. It says the files are damaged when I try to open them. Help!


Annie Moffatt said...

Oh no!! I did it in photoshop elements and will look into it right away. I will try to fix it tonight. Is anyone else having problems. Please let me know and thanks for your patience:)

Annie Moffatt said...

Cathy, I am looking into the issue and I think that you need Adobe Reader to open the pdfs. Please let me know if that helps.

Jennifer said...

I'm loving all your printables, especially all the magnet ones. I have a 18 month old and 3.5 yr old so it's nice to read your blog and find activities that work for us.

I know this is from a while ago, but I just found it and it's perfect for what I'm doing. I look forward to using your reading program once my kids know all the letter sounds!
