These are our “summer edition” sample packet -it contains the sight words “a, and, away, big and blue”. You can also find some great Sight Word Worksheets that are already printed on amazon too! Anyway, today we are talking a little bit about prescchool sight words and then you will be able to get your free sample worksheets of our monster sight word packet – with the sight words a, and, away, big and blue.
As you may know, there are several different lists of sight words that people generally use to help teach children to read. Sight words really should be learned in context so that they make sense to the reader. They should also be memorized/known instantly/fluently when someone reads them. When little readers read, most of the words they read (70%!) are “sight words” so, if a child knows these words by sight/instantly, it really helps with their confidence in reading because they can read most words. Our Learn to read free sight word reading program teaches sight words in context to help the children gain confidence with reading. We then introduce phonics and help children learn to sound out words as well.
Our Learn to read free sight word reading program has its own set of sight words, in its own order. The other sight word lists that are popular are the “Dolch sight words” and the “Frye Sight Words”. The words on each of these lists are all the same, children just learn the different sight words at different times/ (the orders are sorted differently). Our Learn to read free sight word reading program words appear in an order that allows us to teach the sight words in context so that students gain confidence with reading. When I create products, I usually try to create products in the order of our program, but these worksheet bundles I put in the Dolch Sight word list order. This free worksheet packet has words from the pre-primer sight word list, so they are considered great sight words for preschoolers to learn!
Here is a list of preschool sight words… I found this list here. The words in red are words that we introduce and teach in context in our Learn to read free sight word reading program during the first 30 days! So, if I student completes the first 25-30 days of our program, they will be very prepared and know their preschool sight words. As such, I created a 25 days to prepare for kindergarten packet that gives you all the tools we feel will prepare your little one to be a great little reader BEFORE entering kindergarten! (This is how I prepare my own children for kindergarten!) (The words that are not in red are all on the kindregarten list -so, if a student completes our first 25 days, they will be reading at or better kindergarten level!)
Anyway, this packet has 15 pages: 3 pages for 5 different sight words: and, away, big, a, blue.

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading, Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
