This week’s lessons will focus on recognizing high-frequency words (also called “sight words”). These words are the words that appear often while reading (the, is, in, a). Helping your child learn these words is key to future reading success. When your child becomes an independent reader it will significantly help with fluency while reading. Sight word lists appropriate for your child’s current reading/grade level can be obtained through your child’s teacher or your home school curriculum materials. Also, the 2 most popular lists, Fry’s instant sight words and the Dolch sight word list, can be obtained with a simple web search.
