Need a kindergarten sight word wall? This post has cards for the first 40 sight words, the alphabet, some words with capital letters, punctuation, and the words on cards for the Swat flyswatter game. The Robbinsdale School District in Minnesota uses the words listed below. They have 20 sight words for spring and 20 more for fall. With this printable, a word wall may be posted in the classroom. Also, sentences may be constructed with the cards which include some picture words for sentences that will sound like reading when the pictures are named. The words on the cards with the flies could be placed in the reading center, as well. I volunteer for Miss Owl’s classroom and it has been a joy to watch the children learn these words and so much more this school year. The printable is 53 pages long. Teachers may select which portions they might want to use, and print only those pages.

The children love the Swat game. It’s a big hit (pun intended). I bought a game online and used the small plastic fly-swatters. If there are two or more players, the first to hit the word would keep the card until the end of the game. It works fine to play with one child as they love a chance to hit the words.
Here is the entire printable laminated and being cut apart.
And here it is finished and organized. I put the words with capital letters in a separate bag for when the class makes sentences.
Thank you for reading! Carolyn
