• Trick Words

    Sight words (also called "trick" words), taught in kindergarten, should be memorized. These are words the children should automatically know. They should not try to sound these words out because these are words they should know just by looking at them. Reviewing them on a regular basis will help your child become a better reader.

    Ideas for practice at home:

    • Flash Cards
    • Sight Word BINGO
    • Sight Word Hopscotch
    • Sight Word Go Fish
    • Sight Word Memory Game
    • Find & Circle Sight Words in Newspaper or Magazine
