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!


        1. 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!

        2. 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)

        3. 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!!!!

  1. 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.
