Learning sight words takes a ton of repetition and practice for some students. I try to incorporate sight words in a variety of ways in my classroom: as our word wall words each week, as a reading center option, as a daily guided reading practice, and fun, independent practice and games throughout the year. These Dolch Sight Words Easter Egg color by word sheets have been a favorite of many teachers! They are simple and straightforward, with students coloring the egg based on each Dolch sight word.
I first made these Dolch Sight Word sEaster Eggs several years ago. I used the Dolch Primer list and added most of the words onto the list.
There are two different styles included. This one with several small Easter eggs on it.
And this one with one large Easter egg with students coloring in its background. This would also be a neat project with students cutting out the eggs and displaying them on the wall or a bulletin board.
The last page included is a blank one that can be customized.
This one is designed for students to choose the colors and sight words, create a key, and then write the words on the Easter eggs themselves This is perfect practice for writing and spelling the sight words because students are writing the words repeatedly themselves. My favorite way to use this page is to give each student one and allow them to choose any words from our word wall. Then, later in the week, I gave each page out to different students as morning work. The students are always so excited and engaged when they’re creating something for someone else to do,
Another idea for using these pages is to practice specific sight words based on your own class’s list. Here, I’m showing practice with the “wh” question words that my kids always struggle with.
After so many people loved these, I created sets for the Dolch Pre-Primer words and the Dolch First Grade words.
