These sight word activity mats provide many ways to practice and learn sight words. Writing, building, finding….your kids will love this learning activity
If you teach sight words to your kids, these activity mats from my store will give them the opportunity to practice words in many different ways.
Two Versions of Sight Word Activity Mats
The printable mats come in full color and black & white ink-saving version. I have created mats for the Dolch Pre-Primer, Dolch Primer, and Fry first 100 sight word lists.
The black & white version looks great when printed on brightly colored paper. You can laminate the mats or put them in a page protector and they can be used over and over.
Make a Sight Word
I designed each mat by dividing it into 4 different sections. Your kids can practice the sight word in a different way in each of the sections.
The sight word is printed in a very large font in the top section. Kids can create the word with playdough or sensory sand. They can also finger-trace the word, rainbow write the word, or cover the word with small objects like buttons or pebbles.
Read the Word in Context
There is an illustrated sentence on the bottom of the mat. The sentence provides the opportunity for students to identify the word and read the word in context.
Trace the Sight Word
There is also a tracing section on the mat. The word is printed in a dotted font so that kids can trace the word two times with a dry erase marker or crayon.
Write the Sight Word
Finally, there is a section with lines so that kids can write the words.
