Sight Words (also known as Word Wall Words) are words that your child should know at first sight. We will be introducing sight words each week. As a class, we will spell, say, read, find, sing, dance, and write the sight words each week! Phonological and phonemic awareness, spelling patterns, and phonics rules are taught through the sight words every day. This is such an important part of our program because students learn to manipulate letters and sounds to create rhymes, blend and segment letters and sounds, and substitute beginning and ending sounds.

How Can You Help At Home?:

Make flashcards for each sight word at home. Have your child read the word, spell the word while they look at the letters and read the word again. Spend approximately 5 minutes each day with this activity - more if you feel your child is struggling. Quiz your child throughout the day on these sight words (for example, if you are driving to school or having dinner as a family, ask your child to spell as many sight words as they can). You can play memory games, tape them around the house, cheer them, sing them, etc.  Make it fun.
