Kindergarten Dolch Sight Words 1

Good morning to all of you totally awesome Kindergarten teachers! I’ve had several requests to make Dolch Sight Word cards, so I thought this cute little caterpillar was a fun way to learn and review sight words! Today I’m sharing the Kindergarten Dolch Sight Word Caterpillar cards with you!

How to use the caterpillar sight words:

Print pages 3-7 on cardstock and laminate for durability if you choose. Page 8 includes blank caterpillar pieces so you can add your own words!

TIP: Laminate two sheets back to back so the printed sides are facing out, and the blank sides are touching. Run both sheets through your lamination machine, then cut apart and cut out circles. This will create a circle that is laminated on one side, but not on the back side. This helps with creating a backside that is not slippery and can be taped to the wall.

Add the caterpillar head to a blank area of your wall where you plan to add the caterpillar sight word cards. Add each new caterpillar sight word body part to your wall as you learn it. Review your caterpillar cards daily!

And don’t worry…

First, Second, and Third Grade sight word caterpillars are coming soon!

    Are you going to do the Pre-Primer words too?

      Oooo! Good idea!

        Maybe, we don’t really need them, so I didn’t make them, but if there is enough interest…

          This is fantastic, but I would also love to see this in pre-primer words as well. I LOVE all of the wonderful things on your site! Thank you SO MUCH for all you do! You are a blessing and an inspiration!

          I would love the pre-primer words too in catepillar form for my little ones. Fantastic job on your blog! Always excellent ideas and an inspiration for beginning home-schoolers like me! (4yrs, 2 yrs, and newborn)

          Ooohhh…this is wonderful! I would love to use it with all my kiddos which would mean I’d love the pre-primer words too!!! But, I hate for you to do more work! How hard would it be to give us a blank sheet where we could write in the pre-primer words ourselves, but at least it would match the rest of the caterpillar body. Thanks so much for all you do! You have been such a blessing!!!!

            Oops! Wrote too soon!!! Sorry – I just found the blank sheet in the file. Thank you so much!

          Have you made these for the K4 curriculum? I would LOVE to have them for your K4 sight words, we are using it this fall! 🙂

          • erica June 25, 2015 at 10:49 am

            No, I didn’t make them for my own curriculum LOL! I will definitely add that to my list!

  • Andrea Gardner October 30, 2012 at 6:31 am

    Thanks! This is MUCH cuter than my plain old index cards!

  • Nelly October 30, 2012 at 7:01 am

    Do you have them in black and white? 🙂

    • erica November 12, 2012 at 8:20 pm

      Hi Nelly, sorry right now they’re only color.

  • Rachel C October 30, 2012 at 8:41 am

    You’ve done it again!!!! What a great idea, and oh so fun!!!! Thanks, Erica!

  • Kelly October 30, 2012 at 9:52 am

    Wow, these are great! Thanks!

    The Moffat Girls have a caterpillar sight word very similar and I have seen it also at one plus one plus one equals one. ( I think Clarisa share the idea from the Moffat Girls).

    This are cute as well. Except that the ones in the other site are black and white.

      Hi Claudia, thanks for letting me know, I didn’t know she had some.

  • Tina October 30, 2012 at 2:45 pm

    Thanks so much for all your hard work. Looking forward to the 1st grade ones since that’s where I am with my son right now. This will be a great and fun way to learn sight words.

  • Karim October 30, 2012 at 4:46 pm

    Looking forward for the third grade words!

    My 3yo just became really interested in reading, and she’s been having me teach her some of the sight words. This came at the perfect time!! I was just writing the list of words on a piece of paper. 🙂 Thanks so much!
