Sight word booklets are a great way to teach students sight words or ‘popcorn’ words that cannot always be sounded out, but beginning readers need to readily know. My class loves stamping during literacy centers (I think it makes them feel like a grown-up), so I created some Stamp it Up Printables to stick in literacy centers and I’ve been wanting to make some mini sight word booklets too. I finally had a chance to sit down and put them together. I just love how they turned out!
They’re easy and quick to put together. All I did was print out both sheets, stack them on top of each other and cut on the lines. Then I stacked each section and stapled it into a sight word booklet. You can also have your students put the books together if you are short on time. Great cutting and sorting practice! I didn’t number the pages as the order doesn’t matter. Some of the books have an “I can read these words” page which should go in the back though.
Each book has the focus word in the top corner so that everyone can be successful. They will stamp that word on each page.
After they stamp the sight word, they will color the picture and read the sentence.

The sight word booklets can be used throughout the year. The sentences are simple and predictable but do get more complex as the year goes on.

I’ve also had some questions about the stamps I use, so I thought I’d share. I found my stamps at Michaels Craft Store in the stamping aisle. They are about an inch square and perfect for little hands. I also love that they came with both upper and lower case letters! If you don’t have a Michaels near you, you can also find stamps at Lakeshore Learning or Amazon.
I store the stamps in little ice cube trays I found at the Dollar Tree thanks to Pre-K Classroom’s great idea!
I’m pretty sure the ice cube trays were made for alphabet stamps 😉 They fit perfectly and there’s just the right amount! I stuck little stickers inside the tray to help my students keep the stamps organized. {I have no idea why my sticker sheet did not have a yellow “j”! It did not go over well with my OCD!}
