First Grade Sight Word Sentences

Greetings readers! As promised, I have some more sight word sentence printables for you! Today I am sharingย  First Grade Sight Word Sentence worksheets.

Each one has the word along with a funny sentence. Students will practice tracing the word, reading the word, then writing it on their own.



Students will also cut out the letters and spell the word correctly to complete their sentence, great for fine-motor skills and spelling practice! Next they will write the word to complete the sentence.



Finally they will make up their own sentence using their newly learned sight word! The repetition along with the variety of activities really helps students remember their sight words!

This download includes 41 First grade level sight words from the Dolch sight word list.

  1. Thank you! These worksheets are wonderful! Can’t wait to use them with my kids. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Thank you for sharing these!

    What program did you use to create the worksheets? I would love to make some.

  3. Thanks so much!

  4. I love these! Really a great idea and so well layed out! Can’t wait to use them with my first grader! Thank you!

  5. Your designs are so cute! I wish you would have been around when my kids were little.

  6. Are there sets where the caterpillar and the worksheets match up? So far I haven’t noticed that but it would be awesome if I could use them hand in hand. Thanks again for all you do ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi,
      Yes, the caterpillars and worksheets are the same. The pre-primer level and Kindergarten 1 are the same, then primer and Kindergarten 2 match, then first and first.

  7. Hi, sorry to be the one to point this out but there are two typos on the sheets.
    For the word ‘from’ and ‘take’ the tracing words are different!
    Thought you’d like to know.
    Blessings K

  8. Thank you for the sight word worksheets they are wonderful. I teach Kindergarten and my students love them. I wanted to know have your done any more sight worksheets like Fry’s 100 sight words or how can you edit/create your own.

    Hello ๐Ÿ™‚ I stumbled across these through Pinterest and I just wanted to comment on the amazing job you have done! Superb! I also wanted to give you a tip (I hope you don’t mind ๐Ÿ™‚ ) because I noticed your letters don’t reach the top of the writing lines… try using the Stick and Ball font! It’s very similar to the ABC Print you are currently using, but they do go up to where they are supposed to and scoop down as well… ๐Ÿ™‚
    Kind regards,

  10. Thank you so much for these great worksheets. I’ve been homeschooling my 11yr old son, who is living with Autism, for about 7 months now, and on days that I’m just so wiped out and exhausted these worksheets are fantastic exercises for him. Really wonderful work, Thanks!

    Hello Erica,
    I just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you for all your hard work and for sharing all your creations. I am a grandmother who recently began home schooling my 7 year old granddaughter. Public school was leaving her behind and she was literally a nervous wreck. She began stuttering so badly that she could hardly get out a single word. We had planned to wait until the next school year but decided we didn’t want to put her through any more misery. So last February we began our home school classes. Since we began she has excelled. I have used so many of your creations and ideas for our home school. You are very talented and I believe God has sent you on a mission of helping people like me and my granddaughter. I had an extra bedroom and I set that up as a classroom. This is just a beginning for us and I know we have a lot to learn but I believe we are starting out on the right foot. Thank you again for being our inspiration. Polly Gulley (grandma) and Emma (granddaughter).

  12. Thank you thank you! This is just what I’ve been looking for!

  13. Thank you so much for these! I have your sight word check list and these are just what I needed!!

  14. THANK YOU SO MUCH! Can definitely use the for RTI!

  15. Thanks you so much for your ideas. I will use it .

  16. Thank you for your website! My son attends public school. I have been doing some research to help my struggling 1st grader keep up. I appreciate your free printable worksheets, it means so much! I noticed today how ‘available’ worksheets are but all cost money that I don’t have. I can’t wait to explore your website for more information that can help me-help my son. Thank you!

    I happened across your website during my search for help via Internet this evening. I happen to believe that everything happens for a reason. I pray that you can help or guide me in the right direction.

    My son Carson is a 9-year-old third grader. He is in special education for reading at school, beginning this year (which I had to ademently push for). I was advised today that he is reading at kindergarten level. His teacher suggested that I go back to kindergarten level reading exercises at home, not using third grade material. No problem, but where do I start???? I need a ‘lesson plan’ or something! Please offer suggestions: lesson type, length of lesson, etc)

    • Talk to a Kindergarten teacher in your child’s school, ask for resources, tips. His current teacher should help him, too, and suggest/provide you with materials that can help your child.

      On your own, search online for materials for kindergartners, for beginning readers. Start with preprimer sight words. Teach 4 new words in one week. Post these everywhere your child can see it at home, probably his bedroom and kitchen. Have him write them down, trace them, give him a sandbox and have him form the word there. Search for the black and white caterpillar somewhere here online. Celebrate his success by making him add to his caterpillar and let it grow by adding new ones. Black and white so he can color each sight word, using light colors or making him shade lightly so words stand out. Post his sight word caterpillars in his bedroom or playroom and have him read them several times a day.

      Read about common core standards and check online what is expected of Kindergartners. Go to curriculum corner web site so you can see a more friendly version of the goals other wise known as the I CAN goals. You will see all the objectives from K to 12 and it wil help you see what is expected of your child in order for him to approximate the performance of his grade-level peers.

      Expose him to educational online websites. Have him play at Starfall starting from letters. Teach him beginning sounds using pictures and word cards.

      Ask for help. Always. It won’t hurt. Just help you.

  18. Thanks a lot for sharing. I was just wondering if you have these also in black and white? I would love to have my students do these, too.

  19. Thank you so much for this. I have been searching for morning work for my 1st grade homeschooled son. This is perfect!!

  21. Hi!! Thank you so much for offering these for free! They have really helped my son learn his sight words. I was wondering if you had a sheet for “on”? We are doing the primer words now but I can’t seem to find that one. Thanks again!

  22. Rosalba says:

    Awessommmme!! Thank you. These worksheets are a great help.

  23. Thank you so much! I’m teaching summer school and your resources are beyond awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. You are far more fantastic than I ever imagines. I LOVE these! Thank you for everything you do.

  25. Thank you for the great “sight word caterpillar”!! As a non native English speaker I was looking for some help when teaching my son reading English (he understands and speaks a lot but reading is so difficult as the same letters are pronounced differently in different words, for example “here” and “were”)
    Just as a new idea, this is how we used the caterpillar:
    We “fed” (alining words as the body) him with different words each time: For example: Now he likes to eat all the words that start with letter…, all nouns, all verbs, all question words, all the words with 3 letters…. So the child can learn the spelling (reading the words every time he/she adds the word to the caterpillar) as well as practice some grammar.

  26. I love these, but in trying to print them, the dotted middle lines do not print out. Any idea why?

  27. Great Materials! Thank you! These will be very helpful in working with my 1st grader. ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Thank you so much for sharing the sight word sentences! I can’t wait to use them with my students.

  29. Thank you so so much!!! I am going to use it with my girls very soon.

    Thanks so much for sharing these, and for all your hard work!

  31. Suzanne Otero says:

    I have known about your site for a while and have used it for other things, but you always cease to amaze me!!! I found these on Pinterest after purchasing a book from Amazon for $12. I immediately stopped the order when I saw how many of these you put together. I love the cursive ones. My almost 9 year old son still struggles with reading and writing and while I do not completely believe in “sight words” as I believe all words fit in the rules, these definitely help!!! Thank you, thank you.

  32. I really like those sheets . Brilliant

  33. Ms. Domeris says:

    Thank you for all these awesome worksheets… My son loves the big letters, he struggles reading all the words in the one sheet his school teacher gave them, and ge loves the pictures.

  34. Thank you! Great worksheets, very much appreciated!

  35. Wow! This is just what I was looking for and you so graciously are sharing this with us. THANK YOU!!!!
