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!
Can these words be used to teach a preschooler?
Yes, it depends on if they’re ready for it or not. These are meant for kindergarten, but if you have an advanced preschooler that is ready to move on to more words, you’re welcome to use this list. I have lists for prek-3rd grade available on my blog for download.
Do you have the “See it, build it, write it” sight word pages available to print by themselves or just as a download from your store?
Hi the See, Build, Write is only available in the K4/5 Kindergarten curriculum. The good news is that it’s on sale this week! 🙂
Thank you for sharing! This is exactly what I’d been looking for. All the best!
I love your sight. I have used it for years. I am wondering if there is a Pre-kindergarten caterpillar. I teach Special Education and would surely love one. Thank you.
Hi Rhonda, I don’t have a pre-k caterpillar at this time, I’ll see if I can add one. Here are all of my sight word printables:
Hello my name is Donna Rich I used your sight words with my first granddaughter but now I want to use them with my second granddaughter for kindergarten and it’s not letting me download your free sight words. Could you maybe send them to me via email?
