Star Wars Sight Word Writing Tray


Star Wars Sight Word Writing Tray:

What are writing trays? They are shallow trays, plastic containers, or even just a cookie sheet that are filled with a material such as sand or salt that can be moved or manipulated. Your kids can move the material in writing trays to write letters, sight words, spelling words, and much more! This word word activity is a multi-sensory way for kids to work on letter formation, handwriting, and pre-writing skills. Your children will also work on developing and strengthen their fine motor skills.

Getting Ready To Use The Star Wars Sight Word Wring Tray:

What’s Included:

  • 100 Star Wars Sight Word Cards (1st Fry List)


What Else Is Needed:

  • White Card Stock
  • Laminator
  • Laminating Pages
  • Scissors
  • Writing Tray or Container
  • Black Sand
  • Glow-in-the-Dark Stars
  • Glow Stick



To prepare this hands-on sight word activity, click on the pencil below to download and print the word cards. I like to print my resources on white card stock, because it is more durable. But, you can use copy paper too. Next, laminate the cards so you can reuse them over and over. Then, cut the cards apart. To get the writing tray or container ready, fill it with black sand and add glow-in-the-dark stars. 


How To Use The Star Wards Sight Word Writing Tray:

To use this word work activity, your kids will select a card and identify the word on it. They will then practice writing the sight word in the black sand. Instead of using their finger, your children can use a glow stick as their writing utensil. They can complete this activity with the lights off so the stars and stick glow in the partially dark room. So much fun!
