Have you found yourself asking around as to what a Dolch Sight Word is? I know that the concept was foreign to me when I first started homeschooling our two children, but over time I now understand that they are basic words that children and students will see over and over again, so they must familiarize themselves with these Dolch Sight Words. I would like to take a few minutes of your time to explain a product that I did not have when my children where younger, but most definitely would have used, and when we were just starting out homeschooling that I think some of you might be interested in. I will be taking a look at the Romping & Roaring Preprimer Sight Words Pack from 3 Dinosaurs and what it has to offer you, the parent or teacher in the schoolroom or homeschool setting.
Before I get much further into this review and giveaway I would like to say that I was given a free copy of the entire Romping & Roaring Preprimer Sight Words Pack (with extras) to assist me in this review. For full details read my disclosures found HERE.
Learning Dolch sight words can be a daunting task. In the Kindergarten to 1st grade level there are 40 Dolch Sight Words. This Romping 7 can be a Roaring Preprimer Sight Word Pack is a perfect way to learn, practice, and reinforce the Dolch Sight Words. The activities are all child and student friendly, are just challenging enough not to frustrate your child or student, and can be done in any order. This is important because there is no set of words required to do others words in the Dolch Sight Words catalog, but rather only that you complete them all. To assist with this there are multiple check lists to keep your learning focused on the Preprimer Dolch Sight Words.
Who can use this sight word curriculum?

What does this product include?
The Romping & Roaring Preprimer Sight Words Pack includes the following items:
- 40 Dolch Preprimer Sight Words
- 10 pages per sight word
- 9 fun ‘extra activities’
But what are the activities that are included? Included for each sight word are 10 pages of lessons. The free version only comes with 6 of these, so there are 4 extra pages in the paid version of the Romping & Roaring Preprimer Sight Words Pack. Some of the included educational activities are:
- Playdough Mats
- Dot-A-Dot Marker Fun
- Word Tracing
- Word Writing
- Coloring Activities
- Sight Words in Sentences Activities

While it is true that you can find all the sight word sets at no cost on 3 Dinosaurs, I would highly recommend purchasing the Romping & Roaring Preprimer Sight Words Pack because it is the only way to get the extra 4 pages per sight word and extra, bonus materials. The free version only comes with 6 pages per sight word. The additional pages are all unique to the sight words and include the following activities:
For each Sight Word:
- Sight Word Word Search
- Review Page
- Sight Word Path
The extra, bonus items added to the Romping & Roaring Preprimer Sight Words Pack when you purchase it will help you to stay organized, track where you are, and adds more learning fun! Included are the curriculum extras:
- Preprimer Wight Word Cards (Regular, Cube, and Word in the Frame)
- Small book will all Dolch Preprimer Words (Read, Trace, and Color)
- Dolch Preprimer Sight Word Checklist

- Sight Word Coloring Pages
As you can see, each sight word will be positively reinforced throughout your lessons as you decide your pace. In my opinion, the extra cost to get 10 pages versus 6 pages for each sight word is well worth it.
How does this product help you as the parent and teacher?
By presenting each of the 40 sight words in the same manner, your child or student will become familiar with and master the 40 Preprimer Dolch Sight Words in no time flat. This pack takes all of the guess work out of where to start or what to do which means that you as the parent or teacher can spend more time focusing on physically teaching your child or student rather than preparing for lessons.
How does this product teach the sight words?
