While learning phonics is an important skill for beginning readers, sight words is another.
Why learn words by sight?
Simply put, there are some words (also called high frequency words) that appear so frequently in reading that we want our readers to know them automatically, by sight. Just the first 100 words of Fry s word list make up nearly 50% of what we read. Wow!
Knowing these words automatically helps to increase fluency, which can also build comprehension and understanding.
Sight Word Lists
The two most commonly used word lists for sight words are the Dolch word lists and Fry s word lists. This Reading Mama has combined the two lists. They can be printed off for free on her blog (see link below).
