The importance of Sight Words

 Sight words (high frequency words) are words that are known by sight - automatically.  

These words are memorized by how they look (shape and letter order). 

The more sight word vocabulary a reader has, the less work a reader has to do while reading. 

A child with an expanding sight vocabulary is less exhausted by the reading process because he/she spends less time decoding words and more time concentrating on meaning and comprehension of stories.

A child with an expanding sight vocabulary is a more fluent reader.

Children with a low sight vocabulary require repeated practice - lots of it! Please see Mme Menard Blogspot - Let's Play A Game to find ideas for practicing sight words at home.
