Sight Words

Sight Word Lists

Please remember these words are only meant to be read not spelled. Some of the sight words will turn into spelling words during later lessons.

 

Your child should already know the Pre-Primer and Primer Dolch Sight Words. These are Kindergarten Sight Words.

 

Please practice sight words each night.

 

Sight Words (sometimes called the Dolch Word List) are some of the most frequently used words in the English language. Even though they number only about 200, Sight Words comprise approximately 50 to 70 percent of any given general, non-technical text. Therefore, teaching Sight Words as early as possible is considered a crucial part of elementary education.
