Early reading skills; sight words

Sight words are words that can be recognized and “read” when seen. They are not technically read or sounded out. They are memorized. Sight words are one of the building blocks needed to become a successful reader.

Sight words are learned through repetition

By the time your children are ready for Kindergarten they will have seen and heard these sight words thousands upon thousands of times. Children learn to recognize sight words through reading, listening, flash cards, hands-on games and traditional worksheets. As with anything repetition is key. You can help reinforce the learning at home  by pointing out these words during family reading time, by playing some of these games and by practicing with these worksheets and flashcards.
