• Sight Words

    Starting in October, we will be learning one new sight word a week. The children are expected to read and write them from memory. Sight words are high frequency words seen often in print. Many of these words are difficult to sound out and thus require some memorization. The better the fluency of the sight words, the easier it will be for your child to become a more fluent reader.

     

    Ideas for practice at home:

    • flash cards
    • sight word bingo
    • sight word go fish
    • sight word memory game
    • sight word detectives while reading books
