The Donkey Card Creator creates a fully customizable set of Sight Words Donkey playing cards. You can use one (or more) sight words lists (Dolch, Fry, Top 150) and/or use your own custom words. To create your Donkey Cards:

  1. Under Dolch Sight Words or Fry Sight Words or Top 150 Written Words, check the boxes corresponding to any sight words lists you want included in your Donkey card deck. For example, selecting the Dolch Sight Words 3rd Grade and 2nd Grade lists uses those words for your Donkey Cards.
  2. Under Custom Sight Words, enter in any custom words you want added to the Donkey Cards. For example, if you are doing a section on plants, you might want to add leaf, stem, and root.
  3. Click Create Donkey Cards, and a PDF will be generated containing your custom cards. You can print the cards by selecting print from your browser window.
