Sight Word Journal


I saw these journals at lakeshore and fell in love with them! Due to their limited amount of sight words I decided to create my own sight word journal with the high frequency words from our class. I've used them for the past 2 years and the students were very successful with them. The pictures are helpful and they are able to read it independently to themselves and a friend! I think most or all of these words are from the Dolch list. I have broken them down into 3 files because there are a lot of pages. Enjoy!

Sight words: can, get, good, look, like, out, our, play, will, want

Sight words: read, am, boy, big, do, did, friend, go, girl, has, had, if, love, me, my, not, nice,  see, we, little, here, help, now, your

Sight words: dad, mom, no, or, she, us, up, yes, said, come, went, but, into, make, because, saw, so, there, too, what, who, when, where, why

Judy Lau said...

Wow, thanks everyone!
@Hadar - the trick is to search for coloring page instead of clipart (if you are wanting black & white pics)

Jon and Suzanne said...

These are fab! So...do you bind them into a packet or just give one sheet at a time? Thank you for the wonderful resource!

Judy Lau said...

@Jon and Suzanne - I separate the words and make 2 packets - one for first semester and one for second semester. I make a cover page and staple it on the side with a heavy duty stapler. The second semester packet is actually 2 to a page (portrait-style) and I make that journal into a half-page sized journal, since the students are getting used to writing smaller. Hope that helps!

Would you be wiling to make some extra pages if they weren't already in this bundle? I would like to use these but I know some of the words on my list are not already in these pages.

Thanks in advance.
