Free Printable Sight Words Word Searches
Word searches are a great way for kids to practice their sight words. After your kids have learned their consonants, mastered their short vowel sounds, and become proficient in CVC words, learning sight words can open up a whole new world of reading for them. Print out these free word searches and your Kindergartener or 1st grader will have a fun and simple way to practice their sight words.
I love to create educational free printables that are unique. For these word searches, the sight words are listed in bubbles. Early readers can use dot markers, stickers, stamps, crayons and markers to “check off” each word they find in the word search.
These word searches are very easy to do which builds confidence for your early readers. Kids around ages 5 to 7 will find these short and simple word searches a comfortable way to practice their sight words. Adding stickers, stamps, and dot markers can take these from busy work to FUN work!
Why Word Searches Are Great For Learning Sight Words
Kids learn sight words and spelling through manipulation. Any activity that will have your kids deconstructing and reconstructing the letters in their sight words will help them learn much more quickly. Sight words can be easy to learn when your kids are hunting for the letters in a simple word search. Identifying the letters in each sight word and then hunting for them in the correct order within a word search is a great way to build familiarity and spelling skills. Simple spelling games and activities can take these word searches to a whole new level of retention.
