Sight Words

  • Sight Words 
    Sight words are high frequency words that are found in 50-75% of books, newspapers and magazines. These words are irregular and therefore, cannot be sounded out.  Students must be able to identify these words automatically by sight.  Students with a large sight word vocabulary read more fluently.  Below are the first grade sight words, second grade sight words and Dolch Words.  I also have include some fun ways to practice sight words at home!
