Dolch First Grade Games

We have put together several different Flash games to help kids practice the Dolch words in the Primer list. These games will help with word recognition and spelling. The primer list is usually covered in Kindergarten.

There are 41 words on the Dolch First Grade list: of, his, had, him, her, some, as, then, could, when, were, them, ask, an, over, just, from, any, how, know, put, take, every, old, by, after, think, let, going, walk, again, may, stop, fly, round, give, once, open, has, live, thank.

Many schools expect children to learn to read the all of the 220 Dolch words by the end of Kindergarten, but it may be a bit longer before they can spell them all. Before starting to learn the Dolch First Grade words, you need to know the pre-primer list and the primer list.
