Free Printable Sight Words Flash Cards - Perfect for Preschool

Over the last week, I have been working with Dexter, who just turned six, on his reading skills. We have this great set of Lego Star Wars phonics books that we bought him, and he has been going through them, sounding out each sight word beautifully. But I do find that it’s sometimes hard to get him to pay attention because he wants to just get through the story, and he isn’t always so concerned with actually reading. As such, he tries to guess each word instead of sounding it out.

I decided that the best thing I could do was to create some sight words flash cards that would help him to memorize a few of the most often appearing words so that he can begin the process of putting sentences together.

In all honesty, I’ve been amazed at his progress. He’s recently had his mid-year testing done, and our parent teacher conference was very telling. He has come a LONG way since the beginning of the year, and he is way ahead of where he used to be. But that doesn’t mean he’s caught up to the rest of his class. In fact, he’s significantly behind them.

Because of his early hearing loss, for which he had surgery at almost three years old, he has been massively delayed in his learning skills. He’s never gone to preschool, nor had any therapy leading up to starting kindergarten, so he was off to a harder start than others. But he’s done so well this year to better himself, and we are so proud. To put it in perspective, though, his little brother, Dan – who just turned four – can read almost as well as he can. He knows all his letters and their sounds, and he can sound out two- and three-letter words amazingly well.

So basically, we are now working hard with both kids to help them to reach their full potential. For Daniel, I guess he will be ahead of his peers, or at least on par with them when he starts kindergarten in a year and a half. And for Dexter, we are hopefully going to be able to enable him to catch up to his classmates as quickly as he can. I know he has the rest of the year to learn as much as they can teach him. He has a wonderful teacher, and he loves her class. The rest is up to us.

With that in mind, I decided to share these printable flash cards so that others can print them off and use them to help their own kids. These are some of the most common sight words, and they are perfect to begin at preschool level. But they are also great for 5 – 8 year olds who may struggle with reading.

Please feel free to click on each worksheet for the pdf to print out. I suggest using card stock to print them on, but you could also use regular printer paper and use self-adhesive laminating sheets to laminate each card to make them more sturdy.

I hope these can help someone else.

Thank you so much! This is just what I was looking for for my six year old son who likes to guess the words instead of sounding them out. I plan to laminate them and post them around the house for him and my 4 yr. old to see every day.

Hi. Is there a way to make the cards editable? I love the cards, but would like to add my own words.

Hi Becky,

There are some blank cards included so that you can write on them whichever words you want. Unfortunately that’s the best I can do for now. I hope they are useful!

These are great for PK – 3, though most kids will learn these in 1st grade. 🙂 They are good practice for struggling readers, though, as they get older.

Hi Jennifer,

Each page links to its corresponding PDF file. You should be able to print it easily. Try using Cntrl + P to bring up the print dialog. Alternatively, you can right click and “save link as” to save the file and print it from your pc. I hope this helps!

Thank you!!! This is fantastic!
I cut them out and taped on her bedroom window & ceiling. At bedtime we turn out the lights and shine a flashlight on each word and she calls it out. Makes it fun! I love that you did in colors. Colors always helped me visualize for memorization recall. Again thank you!!
