Dolch Nouns Sight Word Flash Cards
After I published the Dolch sight word flash cards a while back, I had a few readers request flash cards for the nouns also. So I created a set for just the nouns.
In keeping with the color theme of the other lists (which are different colors based on level), I made this set purple.
What Is Included
This printable includes flash cards for all 95 traditional Dolch nouns. There are ten to a page. Remember that the original Dolch lists were created in 1948, so some of these nouns may not be as common in children’s books today.
What You Will Need
- Printer paper
- Another option is card stock paper if you would like them to be a little sturdier
- You could also use a small paper cutter if you would like to cut the cards out faster
- If you would like to make the flash cards even sturdier, you could glue them to construction paper after you cut them out.
- If you would like to make them REALLY sturdy so they will last longer, you could laminate them using laminating pouches and a laminator
How to Prepare the Flash Cards
Print out the pages of flash cards on printer paper or card stock paper.
Use scissors or a paper cutter to cut them out. You can print out every page or only the ones you need at the moment.
