Sight Word Games

Starting tomorrow your child will be bringing home a sight word ring in his/her book buddy bag. Sight words are words we read and write the most frequently. They are also words that typically ignore basic phonics rules and patterns. MEMORIZATION IS KEY. Having a large sight word bank aids in oral reading fluency which is directly related to adequate comprehension. Thus, is vital that your child practice reading, writing, and spelling these words each night.

If you're looking for a fun way to encourage your child to continue nightly practice, check out the following websites. Each one leads to a plethora of links, often organized by sight word level (start with list 1 and work up).
