If your child is struggling with writer’s block, ask questions to help them generate ideas.

Sight Word Worksheets Checklist

  1. Did I put my name on my paper?
  2. Did I write three or more sentences?
  3. Did I use an uppercase letter at the beginning of the sentence and lowercase letters for the rest of the sentence unless it is the first letter of a proper noun?
  4. Did I use punctuation at the end of the sentence – . ! ?
  5. Did I spell the sight words correctly?
  6. Did I put spaces between my words and letters within a word close together?
  7. Did I take my time and use my best handwriting?
