10 First Grade Sight Words Worksheets

Today, I’m sharing fun first grade sight words worksheets, games, and lists of words kids can practice.  

first grade sight words worksheets

First graders have been in the reading game for at least a year by the time they reach this grade level.

Their reading skills have improved just by mastering the pre-k and kindergarten sight words lists.  Needless to say, learning sight words should be part of their routine at this point!

Sight words are common words that children will have a hard time reading if they do not have them memorized by sight. These words are not phonetic and cannot be “sounded out” or decoded using the letter sounds. Sight words, and high fluency words, will be a part of their school routine for the next few years!

Here, you will find printable worksheets that offer a variety of fun activities. Without a doubt, they help young learners learn the important sight words and improve their reading fluency.

Whether you are a classroom teacher or a homeschool mom, these practice worksheets are an easy way to add variety to your everyday word wall or flash cards!

Dolch 1st Grade Words

The Dolch sight words are the most common words found in the English language and reading material. In fact, there are 220 of them!

You may have read that Dolch words consist of a pre-primer, primer, first grade, second grade, and third grade list.

Again, these words cannot be sounded out or decoded, so they must be memorized by sight. Having these words down and stored in their memory is a great way to increase reading fluency!
