Do you have a child who is learning their "sight words" for school? Once children begin school (Kindergarten in NSW or Reception/Prep/Pre-Primary/Foundation Year depending on where you live) then reading becomes a priority. Most schools use the Dolch sight words as a part of their literacy program.
The Dolch sight word list contains 220 most frequently encountered words in children’s literature. The Dolch sight word list is widely used as a teaching tool for reading, writing and spelling. Many of the Dolch word list cannot be “sounded out” and must be learned by sight, which is why the list is often referred to as “Dolch’ Sight Word List”. Dolch excluded nouns from his main list.
As an OT, I like to work with teachers and parents. Since learning sight words is a priority in the early school years, I have developed these worksheets to be used with children as they also learn their sight words. I always check with parents and teachers as to what a student is "up to" as my goal is not usually the reading aspect but the writing component of this activity.
This “Box Writing” set of worksheets includes each of the Dolch sight words (ie. 220 words), the box shape outlines for each word and space for writing the word. There are 31 pages included in this set of worksheets. You can purchase this set of worksheets from the Your Kids OT shop. These worksheets may be laminated for durability and used with a dry-erase marker. They then may be used multiple times with one child or with numerous children. Here is sample of the worksheets.
“Box Writing” may be used to encourage the development of several skills -
I have also developed a second set of worksheets "Dolch Sight Word Box Writing Match and Write".
This set of worksheets encourages your child to match the boxed shaped words with a list of sight words and write them in the appropriate boxes. There are 31 pages in this set of worksheets and you may purchase them from theYour Kids OT shop.
Here is a sample of the worksheets.
