Mastering Sight Words Centers for kindergarten. Students build high-frequency word fluency with these fun kindergarten stations. Editable so you can add your OWN words… FREE resources included.
How do I get my students to master sight words?
I know this time of year… this is when you are really working hard to help students master as many sight words as they can. We want to offer opportunities to build fluency… but HELLO… it is spring… everyone is tired! So you need some fun options for your center time.
But First... Assessments!
First things first! You want to know where your class is academically. Some students have already mastered the kindergarten list and are moving onto the first-grade list. Others are working hard to reach the finish line. I love ESGI as a way to get a snapshot of where each student stands.
ESGI assessments are done on a computer or tablet. Students simply read the word as you click Y (if they read it correctly) or N (if they did not know the word.)
This parent letter is AMAZING… but I also used it to see which words still needed instruction.
5 Mastering Sight Words Centers
After assessing, you now know which sight words need more practice. You can edit the resources to be sure to include those focus words.

Sight Word Spelling & Fluency Games
I love these games for sight words (but you can also use them at the beginning of the year for letters). Because these are also editable, you can add the words you want! Simple! Yep! Teach the game once, then switch out the themes as the year progresses. GAME CHANGER when it comes to station management!
Sequence Game for Sight Words
This is a super simple activity! Students love it! Students spin the spinner and dab the word they landed on. Then they try to get 4 in a row. Yes, this one is editable too and it will take you about 1 minute to set up for your students each week.
You can see the sequence for sight words activities here:

Time Me Fluency Games
Students use a timer to see how quickly they can read letters, words, or a phrase. I have made these files also editable, so you can customize the words to fit your needs.

Adding multiple sets to the station allows you to differentiate the activity. PSST… This is your free file. You can find it at the end of this post.
