Sight words are the words that appear most frequently in our reading and writing. Often these words do not have a concrete image that accompanies them, so they simply must be memorized and understood. Understanding sight words eliminates the need to decode them and gives focus on those that are more difficult and less familiar. Also, sight words offer important clues about the meaning of a sentence.
Golden Kids Learning has Sight Word charts for grade levels preschool to 5th grade that will help promote a child’s reading comprehension. These charts can be hung up on walls or put into school folders for daily review. There are also Sight Word videos that accompany the charts, and children can watch and follow along.
