This free printable sight word book introduces the following three sight words: “I”, “see” and “a”. Using simple sentences, repetitive text, and familiar objects (farm animals), we created a free printable sight word book that is ideal for a child developing a sight word vocabulary.
Printable Sight Word Books
As you read this book, encourage your child to point to each word (trace the sentence with a finger). If your child is interested, read the book again. We designed this book to print in black and white; similar to a coloring book. After you read the book, encourage your child to color each picture. We also included a fun activity – find the hidden sight words – to reinforce automatic recognition of these words.
We selected the following high frequency words: I, see & a. These words are included on both Dolch and Fry’s sight word list; they are commonly found in printed material. In addition, these three words are also among the most common words used by a primary student (kindergarten through 2nd grade). Click here to obtain the above sight word worksheet (PDF file) to help a child practice writing these high frequency words.
We intentionally selected a topic familiar to most children – farm animals. In addition, we referenced both Dolch’s 95 common nouns and Fry’s 100 picture nouns to select the most appropriate farm animals, which are as follows:
- pig and
When your child encounters these words, help him decode the word by sounding out each letter, e.g. /p/, /i/ and /g/ and then point to the picture. Obviously, some words will be much easier than others. Offer assistance on the more difficult words. Point to both the picture and first letter and ask them questions:
- Do you know the name of this animal?
- What sound does this letter make?
We developed this book so that the print appears in the same place on each page and the illustrations support the text. Our free sight word books are perfect for an early emergent reader, a child who is just beginning to read.
We also created a fun worksheet containing a matching game. It also offers sentence strip with each animals name in dotted lines so your child can enhance their writing skills.
