2nd Grade Sight Word Sentences

Hi teachers! Are you looking for a fun way to have students practice their sight words? Look no further!

I’ve had a ton of requests for some more of my sight word sentences, so today I’m sharing the second grade sight word sentence printables with you.



Each worksheet 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 then glue them on the sheet to spell the word correctly to complete a sentence. This activity is 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 46 Second grade level sight words from the Dolch sight word list.

  1. Wow! Thank you for this set!! You have given me so much encouragement and plenty of ideas while I begin the huge journey of homeschooling. I look forward to your blog so much!

  2. Gretchen says:

    Thank you, Erica! This is wonderful. My 2nd grader is really struggling with spelling, so we have been trying to find ways to fix the problem. This is definitely a help!

  3. Sarah C says:

    Thank you so much!

  4. Thank you so much for your generosity! These will help us a lot! 🙂

  5. Leah Mae says:

    These are so wonderful!! Thank you so much for all your hardwork AND for allowing so much to stay free.

  6. I love your blog. I have learnt so much from it.

    And I esp love these sight word sentences pages.
    I have just one suggestion. The height of the sentence lines can be reduced a bit. Its too wide for 2nd grader, causes them to write really big words, when now they can start pratising a little smaller size writing.

  7. Thank so much for your generosity!

    I love the ideas and practical materials that you share.

  8. Thank you so much for your willingness to share all your wonderful ideas. It gives hope to those who want to teach, but not know where to start …. or in my case, not have a creative bone in her body to help teach. I am very grateful to you. 🙂

  9. Liosha Miles says:

    WOW, this is wonderful. I absolutely love your sight. I’m not a homeschooler, but I love that I can reinforce what my son is learning and will learn this coming school year. Now that we are in the summer, I can get him started on 2nd grade sight words before the school year begins.

  19. Thank you for this. I’m always looking for stuff for my daughter

  20. Just found your sight from pinterest,. Reading your blog and checking out your book homeschooling 101. I am 2 weeks into homeschooling and looking for ideas to plan my year for my 2nd and 5th grader.

  21. This is a wonderful website, I am a private tutor and am so blessed to be able to make a living from doing what I love. Teaching! I so admire the home schools, as I have abandoned the idea of working in a school for obvious reasons. Thank you so much for sharing all this with us.

  22. Hi,
    Just wanted to say I printed out your sight words and my daughter is enjoying the work. It is not to easy and not to hard. These are words I have not thought about using so it has helped me a lot. Thank you,

  23. Christian Cunard says:

    It would be awesome if you would include the PrePrime and nouns in the caterpillar sight words. I just love the site word printables that you have done. My children love them too. But having the other two lists in this format would be wonderful too.Is there any chance of a near future caterpillar with the preprime and noun sight words?

  24. Thank you soooo much for all of the time you put into creating these resources. Our family truly appreciates it!

  25. Shawn Dell says:

    Good morning Erica. I hope your family enjoyed your Christmas and New Year season. I am a first-year homeschooler (enough said, right!? lol) of two 4th and 1st. To make things more challenging we pulled both of our children out of public schools and found they both suffer with eye tracking, teaming and focus issues. This could be one reason why my daughter was reading at a lower second grade level (with extra help) and being pushed into 4th grade.

    I am looking for a website or software that I can produce worksheets. I have tried on my own only to download from untrustable sites and have had to clear out multiple viruses. (Yes, my 6 yr old son clicked onto his Explode the Code online work to see pornographic advertisements on the side bars) Oh man, 1st year homeschooling would kill me if not for Jesus!

    Your worksheets are beautiful but I would like to customize the sight words to help my daughter with some of the more difficult yet common words in her reading.

    Thank you for all that you provide to your family and our homeschool community. God Bless richly!

  26. Hi Erica,

    Thank you for your precious document of sight words practice. I found it very useful. Your contribution for this education field is respectful. Thanks so much.


  27. Thank you!!! I am home schooling and these are awesome!

  28. Gay Gallagher says:

    I needed something badly for summer work for a kindergartner that reads at a 2nd to 3rd grade level, and is working on 2nd and 3rd grade sight words. I don’t have time to make it myself. Thank you so very much for sharing!

  29. This is SO helpful! I am currently in Thailand teaching about 30 kids in one class and I have been struggling to find something they would all benefit from. This is so so great. Thank you for sharing!!

  30. There are wonderful!!!!! Is there any way you could possibly create sheets for the words: word, says & are?

  31. I love these worksheets! I looked through the comments to see if anyone had asked if you could make them using D’Nealian writing. We will introduce cursive at the end of 2nd, so when teaching handwriting, we use D’Nealian. I would love to use them if you could offer this. Thanks!

  32. Tiffany Kuehl says:

    I love these sight word printable’s!! My son is in 1st grade. He has 100 words he has to learn by the end of the year. I’ve printed off all the pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade sight word printable’s. I’m still missing some words is was hoping you could make a list for me. It would be greatly appreciated.

    I’m missing: They, Than, Time, Words, What, Way, Water, About, More, Other, If, Number, Called, Each, Day, Long, People, and Part…..

    Thanks if you have time and could do it.

  33. Hi quick question how do you download these worksheets they are amazing! Also is there a grade level three?

  34. These are wonderful, thanks so much for putting them out there for homeschooling to use. This is the first time home schooling my Granddaughter and she is having problems in reading and Math. This one helps a lot.

  35. Thank you from a special Ed. Teacher!

    Thank you for sharing this information, and for making available – free – the resources you designed. My 7-yr old grandson has been tagged with dyslexia; and his reading is not to par with his peers in the 2nd grade. He scores high on his reading tests when he uses the headsets when he is read to; yet next year (3rd grade) these tests will not incorporate reading to him. He is disheartened that he was scheduled to attend summer school – again. So I am making myself available 2 hours a week to help him with his reading. I’ve printed your sight words, and I like it that you incorporate writing these words out too! Tomorrow we begin this wonderful journey with reading at our local library, and I pray that by next school year he will be ready for 3rd grade. Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated. Again, thank you for all you have provided for free. With heartfelt gratitude, Providencia

  37. Thank you! This is such a Blessing!
