Sight words, also called high-frequency words, are the words that appear in the text the most. They appear more than other words, but they are often tricky words. While some of these words follow phonics patterns, many do not. The goal of teaching students these sight words is to give them the ability to recognize these words without sounding them out.
The more opportunity we offer them to see, hear, read, and understand the words, the better their chance of memorizing, understanding, repeating, recognizing, and writing these words.
By teaching these words, your child will be able to read in a smoother, more natural, and fluent way, without stopping to sound out or figure out each word.
Learning their sight words will be the building block for everything else. They will have a solid foundation that will impact the rest of their academic future.
