Sight Word Readers
So far I’ve shared 25 sets of sight word readers. Beginning readers can use context clues, picture clues, and sight word knowledge to read these printable little books. You can learn about how to use them by clicking on the main image.
These images will get you the post where each set of books is shared. You’ll also find a variety of reading activities in each post. Scroll down to the end of each post to download the readers.
I’ve shared over 130 books in my free phonics reader collection that are designed to be used alongside my sight word readers or separately. Each book introduces a new phonics pattern and gives practice with simple sentences and bright pictures. Click on the image to download each set.
In addition to these math printables, I share a variety of playful ways to learn about math with items you may have lying around your house. Visit my math page for all of my math activities organized by skill.
Phonemic Awareness & Phonics Printables
Browse these printables for activities to teach both short vowels, long vowels, and other phonics patterns. You’ll also find activities for pre-readers, such as rhyming clip cards. For more ideas for teaching reading, visit my Learning to Read Pinterest board.
Sight Word Games
I teach my preschoolers to write the alphabet using a progression of easy to hard handwriting pages. To learn more, visit my handwriting page.
Beginning Sound Activities
Play Beginning Sound Blackout with eight different boards. Call out a letter from the letter cards, and have your child cover the corresponding picture.
For a simpler, slower-pace activity, print my beginning sound picture mats and cards. They start simple and build on each other as your child works through each mat. The clip cards are also a good activity for beginners.
For the simplest activity of all, try the letter sound clip cards. There are no letters at all. Your child needs to hear and match beginning sounds in words.
Beginning Sounds Coloring Pages

I love to create spelling games for my daughter to use as we learn through Word Study (you can read my 5-part Word Study series if you’re curious about that!).
Here you’ll find sample spelling lessons with printables. Even if your child is not in the within-word stage of spelling, these lessons will give you a flavor for how to teach spelling with word study. If your child is in the within-word stage, you can start with these seven lessons and continue with the lists found in the book Words Their Way.
Dot Sticker Pages
We do these dot sticker pages to reinforce letter shapes and sounds. They’re also great fine motor practice! Use dot stickers, round magnets, Do-a-Dot markers, round cereal, or make your own pom-pom magnets. Find our entire collection by clicking on the image below. You’ll be able to get each page individually OR the entire set in one easy download.
Printable books of rhymes and songs
These printable letter books are perfect for toddlers and preschoolers. Each book contains six rhymes and/or songs for a particular letter of the alphabet. Find our entire collection by clicking on the image below.
