Kindergarten Sight Words
There are two lists that are commonly used to teach sight words. This printable uses Fry’s First 100. There is also Fry’s Second 100 list, but in this worksheet builder, we are only focusing on the first 100. The commonly used list is the Dolch sight words list.
Fry’s First 100 list contains 100 of the most high frequency used words, besides nouns, in the English language. The Fry Sight Words list is a more modern version of the Dolch list. Dr. Edward Fry developed the list in the 1950s and then updated it in 1980. There are a total of 1,000 words in the Fry list and they contain about 90% of all the words in written materials.
These word lists can be used for Kindergarten students or first grade students.
If you are looking for a Kindergarten sight word list, here is a simple list to look at.
Sight Word Practice
Why is a sight word practice important? Here are a few bullet-pointed reasons why sight word practice is important for the Kindergartener or first grader.
- Sight words help kids become fast readers.
- Sight word practice helps children become more fluent readers.
- Many sight words are not spelled the way they sound, this helps emerging readers read more quickly once they memorize sight words.
- Boosts confidence in reading.
You can use this printable in so many different ways! If you are in a classroom setting, this would be a great printable for your literacy centers! It’s a great way to begin to expose children to sight words. Perhaps at the beginning of Kindergarten use this printable at your literacy stations or centers and by the end of Kindergarten they will be using the printable on an individual basis and will know many of the words!
If you are looking just for sight word flash cards, the word pages would make great flashcards!

There are many 5-star reviews at my Etsy shop and if you make a purchase, I would appreciate yours!
I highly recommend that you laminate this printable. It makes it dry-erase compatible and will last a lot longer.
If you use Velcro to hold the words and letters onto the page, I recommend splurging on the dot version of Velcro. It makes the assembly go much faster!
This does take a long time to put together. The laminating and cutting everything out is a long process, but it is totally worth it once you have all these common words put together! It makes a wonderful learning activity. It can be a perfect addition to your curriculum!
We use this printable in our homeschool routine. We are going through a Kindergarten curriculum by My Father’s World (if you decide to use this curriculum, I would appreciate it if you use my referral code at check out – W111536). Typically we receive sight words with this printable at least once a week, and sometimes more depending on the level of patience and interest of my learners!
