Writing Sentences with High Frequency Sight Words


  1. Hand out copies of or display the High-Frequency Sight Words.
  2. The challenge is to try to write three sentences using as many words from the list as possible.
  3. Explain the scoring to help explain the goal.
  4. How to score the sentences written by each student:
    • Win 1 point for each different word from the list used. Repeats of a word don’t earn extra points.
    • Misspelled words don't earn points.
    • Words that are not used in a complete sentence don’t count either.
  5. After scoring have the students read their sentences aloud to the rest of the group.


  1. Set a time limit instead of limiting the number of sentences.
  2. Have the children rewrite any misspelled words or incomplete sentences before final scoring.
  3. For 10 extra points, write a sentence with NO words from the list.
