Download and print flash cards from the Dolch, Fry, and Top 150 Written Words lists, or make your own Custom Sight Words Flash Cards. The cards are available in three sizes full-page (1-up); half-page (2-up); and quarter-page (4-up). We recommend printing the flash cards on card-stock paper, to make the cards stiffer and more durable.

4. Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why is there an arrow under each word in the flash cards?
A:
The arrow serves multiple purposes. It reminds teachers to place their index finger on the circle and move it from left to right under the word to lead the student’s eye across the word. The arrow also helps students orient the flash card and helps them remember to read from left to right.

Q: How do I hold the flash cards? A: Hold the flash card so that it is directly in front of your child at your child’s eye level. When you move your finger across the arrow, make sure that it does not obstruct your child’s view of the word as this distracts attention from the words.

Q: The flash cards don’t print correctly — why do they go over the edge of the paper? A: The one-to-a-page and four-to-a-page flash cards need to be printed in landscape. To do this, go to your printer settings and select “landscape” (not portrait).

    Hi,

    I have been trying to print the quarter-page set up in multiple page set up on my printer but its unable to print. Please advise as to how i can print in multiples as i want more than 4 words per page. Looking forward to your response.

    Nadia

    ADMIN – Hi Nadia,

    If you want smaller cards, I recommend using some of our game cards. The Lucky 13 cards (9 per page) and Boom! cards (8 per page) will both suit your purposes well, I think. Just ignore the numbers or graphics in the corners and focus on the words.

      when you print a PDF you should be able to select an option called “multiple pages per sheet”… the document will then print either 2, 4, or 8 pages per sheet, whichever you select! Hope this helps! 🙂
