• Sight Words


    Sight words are words that good readers can recognize instantly without having to “sound them out”. Sight words are important because:

    1. They make up a high percentage of the material that we read.

    2. Many of them cannot be “sounded out”.

    3. If a reader spends too much time trying to decode words, he/she will lose fluency and the meaning of the passage may be lost.


    The best way to learn sight words is to practice, practice, practice!

    It takes repetition and memorization.
