                Sight Words

         In order to begin to teach your child how to read, or write simple sentences, he/she must be able to read commonly used words (sight words).  "Sight words" are those high-frequency words which may not be easily sounded out. (ex. said, the, as)  These words must be memorized and instantly recognized. Our sight words come from the reading and math series, as well as frequently used classroom words.  As new words are introduced throughout the school year, I will continually add them to this list for you to review with your child. An updated list will also be sent home in your child's folder monthly.  Please practice them frequently.
