14 Sight Word Activities for The Sight Word YOU

Sight words are one of the building blocks to reading development in Kindergarten (and beyond). Students are expected to learn a pretty substantial list of sight words. As a teacher, I always found myself digging around each week trying to put together activities that matched the sight word or words that we were studying. I would pull from this resource and that resource, and then finally come up with enough sight word activities for the word I had introduced that week. This was pretty time consuming, and teachers definitely have VERY LITTLE TIME, so I decided to start creating sight word sets that focused on ONE word. This was perfect because I could print the file for the week on Monday and go. No more looking for specific activities to match our sight word. We would use these focused activities for morning work, sight word centers, working with words, and more. Here is an example of one of the sight word sets that I created. This set focuses on the word YOU.
