Dolch Grade 1 Sight Words Worksheets
Related ELA Standard: RF.1.3b
Dr. Edward Dolch identified a list of the most commonly occurring words for first graders in the nineteen-forties. The list consists of roughly two hundred what are referred to as service words and just under one-hundred nouns. It is estimated, that even today, eighty percent of the words a first grader will read will be part of Dr. Dolch's list. The goal behind creating such a list was to provide educators with a reference of what terms and phrases they should help students become automatic with. These worksheets will actively use the terms found on Doctor Dolch's first grade vocabulary list and put students in position for success.

What's the Best Way to Learn Sight Words?
Sight words are the most effective way that leads students to successful reading. These terms should be practiced by parents along with their children to make them a fluent reader and learner because it is the most essential task to perform. Practicing vocabulary helps build excellent reading skills in a student. Students should start learning these words in the early stages of their lives so that they can improve their skills with time. Learning new forms of vocabulary is not always a boring task, the act of learning can be made interesting by using different fun ways. Listed below are common and interesting ways to learn sight words.
Use Your Wall
There are so many things in the children's room that can be used as a tool to learn sight words. The most interesting way to learn these terms is to place the letters of the words on the wall and to make it even more interesting place the neon-colored letters. Before sleeping, switch off the lights and read the letters on the wall. Daily reading of the letters will help students in strong memorization of sight words.
Play a Game
There is nothing more interesting than playing and learning at the same time. Most of us have played the game called "stepping stones" in which the children jump from one place to another after throwing a stone. To learn sight words, the students can make a stream of written word cards and can jump on them one by one but in this case, they should loudly pronounce the word on which they are standing.
Games that include searching for things are fun to play and require the workings of the brain. Parents should make their children look for specific sight words in comic books, newspapers or magazines. This way the student will recognize the terms and the continuous sight of words will help them to learn those specific sight words.
Block It Up!
Alphabet blocks really come in handy here. I love creating a center where students can work with these manipulatives on their own. I have them start with either a vowel blend or consonant pattern and have them think about how many new terms that they can think up. They then write these terms on a small card that is present or paper. You can also use playdough, magnetic letters, or letter tiles. I even have students make their own with notecards.
