What Are Sight Words?

Sight words are words you can read by sight, without sounding out phonetically.

Sight words are made up of the most commonly used words. These are the words your child will come across in books the most often, which means committing them to memory will increase their reading speed and confidence. 

Many sight words are also words that are nearly impossible to sound out. Words like one, said, does, could and should. Imagine how frustrating it is for a child who only knows how to sound out words phonetically to come across one of these words in a book or sentence!

How to Use the Sight Word Worksheets?

These sight word worksheets are easy to download and to use. 

All you have to do is print and you have a ready made activity to practice reading common words!

You can choose to do one worksheet a day or focus on a word per week. 

Pair these worksheets with other sight word activities, such as:

  • Building words with magnetic letters
  • Writing the words on a whiteboard or chalkboard
  • Finding the words in books as you read

Sight Word Lesson Plans – Free Weekly Template

So you can use my free lists and play games all you want, but we both know, everything works better with a plan!

As I’ve mentioned, I’ve been working hard on designing a sight word curriculum for my daughter that is both fun and interactive.   I dug into my vault of  teacher tricks and designed a 5 weeks worth of games and activities that will keep her engaged while also helping her learn her sight words.  I meticulously planned weeks worth of instruction she actually looks forward to!

sight word weekly homework

Of course, the easiest thing to do would be to  grab my uber affordable weekly sight word lesson plans that are done for you.  But if that’s not in the cards for you, I’ll still help you use the resources I’ve given you in this short sight word series to design your own lessons.

Below you’ll find my blank lesson plan template. You can click here , or on the image below to download it.  Meanwhile, I’m going to give you a brief run down of how I plan and some ideas for filling it out.

sight word weekly homework

You probably noticed that, just like in my letter of the week plans, I didn’t include specific days of the week in my plans. Why you ask?

Because… Mom life.

If you have to skip a day or couple of days because the stomach bug runs through the family, it will be ok.  Life happens.

Also, another important reminder. Your preschooler is not designed to sit and be focused for long period of times. They simply do not have the attention span for it! I try to do these activities in 15 minute segments.

You’ll see that these plans are divided into 5 main sections. We typically do review and Guided Practice together and then later, I let her do independent practice and the worksheet. I do try and be close by to help with those activities too though. I try to plan each of these sections accordingly and vary the activities so they don’t often repeat.

Just in case you’re already feeling a little overwhelmed at the thought of planning all this.. you don’t have to do all the work. For only $5 you can gain access to my 5 weeks of lesson plans for List 1. You also get access to 47 pages of sight word goodies including: word of the day printables, flashcards, an assessment and more! Everything you need is there!

sight word weekly homework

Still want to pass?  I understand!  Let me tell you how I created mine so you can create your own.  Let’s look at each of the sections briefly:

Word of the Day

As we start our sight word journey, I created a quick schedule which I wanted to follow in my instructional plans. I didn’t do it exactly as the words appear in the lists, as I wanted to take a different approach to teaching them. This schedule can be found in my popcorn words pack .

I have started out with a word a day. I think this will be fast enough paced for my daughter, and it could even turn out to be too fast. If so I’ll slow it down. At five words a week we will be finishing the first list in a little over a month, which will have her easily reading Level A/B books with no problem.

In my plans, I always note the word of the day just to keep myself on track.

The first part of our real lesson is made up of drill. Yes, it is boring . But we try to dress it up when we can. Some days we whisper our sight words, some days well yell them. Some days we sing, and some days we cheer. There are tons of different ways you can do it. I actually have a powerpoint from my teaching days that we use sometimes which makes it a little more interactive and breaks up routine.

We start with the introduction of the new word of the day. We look at it, write it in the sky and practice spelling it. Then we add it to our sight word stack and practice it with the previous ones.

Each day as we do the sight words, I make a stack of cards she knew on the first try, a stack she was able to figure out after a little bit, and a stack of ones she can’t remember. We keep these in an index card container and watch as the sight words she knows grows. We us this as an informal assessment, but primarily as a motivational tool.

Guided Practice

Sight Word Board Games - This crafty mom

Here is where we will play a game, or do an activity that requires assistance. I do these activities with her. I usually set the time for 15 minutes and we play just that long, unless it’s a board game which sometimes runs longer.

I pull these from the list of games and activities I compiled in my post about engaging and interactive sight word practice . Typically for Guided Practice, we will do one of the following:

  • Sight Word Board game
  • Sight Word Matching
  • Sight Word Go Fish
  • Find the treat
  • Sight Words Scrabble
  • Magazine Hunt
  • Race the clock

It’a also important to note that almost any activity I used in the Sight Words Games & Activities post can be modified to be a game. Adding a timed element to anything adds some competitive fun to it!

Independent Practice

Sight Word Lacing - This Crafty Mom

These are activities I know she can do without my assistance. The first time she does anything, we do it together, so I can model the right way to do it. Be sure to account for that when making your plans. You need to probably demonstrate and set expectations, or you’ll end up with sand all over your house!

These again, are the activities I pulled from my sight words games post . You can find more detailed explanations and pictures in the post.

  • Solo cup stacking
  • Write in sand
  • Write in salt
  • Write in shaving cream
  • Shape it with playdough
  • Spell with with magnetic letters
  • Write it on dry erase board
  • Write it on chalk board
  • Write it with bathtub crayons
  • Spell it with bathtub letters

I typically give her 10-15 minutes to do these activities. Any longer and she loses focus quickly.

Each day we also complete a sight word worksheet independently. There are a ton of options out there that you can find with a quick Pinterest search. However, I wanted something consistent that would focus on using the skills she needed to grow her sight word knowledge quickly. So I created my own set of Word of the Day sheets for every word in List 1. I find that mine are a little different from others in that they were designed to be completely with little to no assistance. I tried to keep the activities simple and predictable so that the word could become independent after a short bit. You may need to help with the reading the sentence on the sheet, but otherwise, it can be done without help. It also makes a great little informal mini assessment. But you don’t have to take my word for it. You can try a free sample of my sheets by clicking here or on the image below.

sight word weekly homework

For the books I just hit up the local library and looked for a couple of books with the words we were focusing on that week in the title. I found that if it was in the title, it occurred several times throughout the book. We read every day, so I just incorporated that into these lessons and as we read we tried to find the sight words we were working on that week.

Here’s a peak at some of the books I included in my plans.  Do you sense a theme here?

For your convenience, this post contains affiliate links. If you purchase from these links I may make a small commission at no cost to you.

I like to know what I’m going to need for the next week, so I make a materials list to make sure I have everything handy. If I don’t, I usually just pick up at the store, or order something off Amazon Prime. I keep all of our school materials in a big 30 gallon bin, so I’m not scrambling looking for them. Sometimes when my life actually goes to plan, I pull out the week’s materials in advance and set them aside. It’s a habit from my many years teaching. It’s sort of ingrained in your brain that preparation saves valuable instructional time.

Extra Activities

For the extra activities section , I included some other free related sheets and activities I found on Pinterest. Be sure to follow me and you’ll see all these things I’ve pinned and more! The list of these resources are also included in my pack!

So that’s how I plan a week’s worth of sight word activities. You may find you need to modify this for your child. If introducing a letter a day becomes too much, you can back off a little and just introduce one every other day, or however frequently they can handle it.

You can print as many of these free templates as you like here! Don’t forget to grab my developmental lists of sight words for free, as a guide. If you have any questions you still need answered, be sure to drop a note in the comments and I will get back to you!

Embracing Destiny disclosure

Do you have a beginning reader in your family? Or possibly a struggling reader? I know the feeling because it wasn’t so long ago that I felt like I tried everything to help my daughters to read. I didn’t want to push them or make reading a chore, but I wanted to provide a variety of resources to help shore them up when they wanted to practice.

Two of my daughters caught on to reading quickly, but another one struggled a bit more. When I found the reading resources at The Crafty Classroom , things really fell into place for her! She loved the printable activities, making her own books, and the fun illustrations.

Because of our great experience, I’ve been recommending The Crafty Classroom to all my friends for over two years now — and not just for reading. There are science , geography , math , art, Bible , and language arts learning activities as well.

The Crafty Classroom now has TWO levels of Sight Word of the Week in their line of reading resources. Preschool is a 40-week curriculum and Kindergarten is 52 weeks . (You can save $10 by buying the bundle of both.)

Here is the description of the Preschool level :

Sight Word of the Week covers 40 key sight words. Each week covers a single sight word with fun and engaging worksheets, activities, games and hands-on resources. Students put their knowledge to the test with a weekly sight word mini-book that will bridge the gap between emergent and early readers. Providing your students with a springboard to success with this ready to use program. The 40-week curriculum covers all 40 Dolch 220 Pre-Primer words and prints in the necessary order.

Stories include jokes, fairy tales, and lots of sillies! Perfect for bridging the gap between emergent and early readers. Each book features large print, easy to read font for emergent readers. Early readers will enjoy the extra practice reading the (sometimes silly) comments made by the characters in each story. These readers print on a single sheet of paper and are just the right size for little hands. Store early readers in your Sight Word Notebook Pocket for easy review each week. Weekly Early Reader: At the end of each week, students put their new reading skills into practice with their own early reader. Each booklet takes a single sheet of paper and is folded to make a 4-page early reader. To assemble fold in half horizontally, then fold again in half vertically so that the title page is on the cover of the booklet.  Students write their name on the cover page and color a star for each time they have read the book.  For extra practice encourage students to underline or color their word as they find it in the story. Review, Games & Assessments:   Mystery Monster Review Pages:   This curriculum includes 8 Mystery Monster Review Pages for use at weeks 5, 10, 15, 20, etc….  Each sheet includes 3-5 words for students to find and color on their chart.  When complete they will reveal a mystery monster.  These sheets are wonderful for providing students with a little extra practice. Sight Word Bingo: There are two different Bingo Games to be played at Week 20 and Week 40. There are three different bingo boards for each set. Ask children to write their words from weeks 1-20 on a sheet of paper then cut apart to make calling cards. Sight Word Sticker Chart: Available in full color or black and white, this sticker chart is a great incentive to hang on your classroom wall. Kids color in or place a sticker on each word they have mastered. Sight Word Student Assessment Charts: This assessment chart is a quick way to gauge where your child is at with their sight word memorization. Use stickers or write the date next to each word read. We recommend assessing children at regular intervals so you can adapt your studies as necessary. Children needing additional work can use their sight word notebook, word flashcards, and early readers for review.

Pretty thorough, right? This is an awesome tool to have when teaching your kids to read! There is even an example Weekly Overview on the website so you can get a closer look, along with sample pages.

sight word weekly homework

ASL Chart:  Start each week by learning the ASL for your sight word. Read and recognize the word in sentences.  Make your work with letter magnets and practice the fingerspelling as shown on the chart.  Hang this chart in the classroom for review each morning.  For words where there is not an exact sign, fingerspelling is taught.

Sight Word Brick Pictures:   Children write their sight words alongside four review words. Each time they finish a row they cover the corresponding word with building bricks to complete the picture.

sight word weekly homework

Spin, Read, & Build:  Children spin a pencil and paperclip spinner. They read the word, then place a block on that word in the picture. This continues until the picture is complete.  Students then practice reading their word three times.

Sight Word Worksheet:  Students trace, find, write, spell, search, spell, and solve the maze for their sight word. This is a great way to practice oral spelling by having students read the letters aloud as they go.

sight word weekly homework

Sight Word Dab: This colorful page can be used in a variety of ways. Children can use bingo daubers to find and dab their sight word. Alternatively, children can color with crayons, use flat round marbles, coins, or even playdough to roll and smash their word.

Sight Word Sentences: Children cut and paste the picture words to match the correct sentence. Children then write the sentence on the line. For struggling writers, have children circle their sight word in the sentence and practice writing the sight word a few times on the lines.

sight word weekly homework

Touch & Read:  Students place their fingers on the dots as they read their sight word and slowly build into reading a sentence.

Sight Word Notebook:   These activities are intended to be stored in a small notebook. This page includes a flashcard for weekly review, sight word snap cube card to make, and ASL letter tiles to spell the sight word.

Weekly Early Reader:

Again, this is done in the same format as the Preschool level so it all flows naturally.

sight word weekly homework

Sight Word War:   This curriculum includes 8 Sight Word War Battle Boards!  Students write their sight words on their board (just like you might arrange your battleships) then take turns seeking & destroying their sight word ships.

Sight Word Code Cracker:   This set includes fun sight word flashcards for students to decode.  Each card features a variety of pictures, for which students must identify the beginning letters to spell out their sight word. These are great when laminated for reuse, or as flashcards for performing mentally for speed.

DIY Sight Word Word Search:  Students create their own word search to challenge a friend or family member.  Using the word back at the bottom of each page, students must arrange their words on the grid, then fill in the remaining blanks with random letters.

Sight Word Student Assessment Charts:  This assessment chart is a quick way to gauge where your student is at with their sight word memorization.  Use stickers or write the date next to each word read.  We recommend assessing students at regular intervals so you can adapt your studies as necessary.  Students needing additional work can use their sight word notebook, word flashcards, and early readers for review.

It was a sponsored post on Facebook. Since I like the Crafty Classroom I see their posts. Maybe you should let her know they are still running that ad. Does The Crafty Classroom have their own blog?

Yes, this link should take you directly to the Crafty Classroom blog: http://www.craftypartners.com/idevaffiliate.php?id=9&url=250

If you scroll down a bit on that page, you’ll see the latest posts. 🙂

Sight Words, Reading, Writing, Spelling & Worksheets

Everything you need to know about sight words. We also provide articles and worksheets for parents and teachers to provide assistance with spelling, writing and reading.

Sight Words Worksheets

Sight words worksheets are great activities; they are the perfect supplement to a sight word lesson. We have created numerous worksheets to help your child or student develop a sight word vocabulary. Our selection of sight words is based on our reading curriculum and Dolch’s and Fry’s list containing common or high frequency words that a child should recognize by sight, rather than sounding out.

Printable Sight Word Worksheets

Kindergarten worksheets, dolch worksheets, first grade worksheets, featured worksheets.

Worksheet #5 is a blank template. Use this worksheet if you are working on a specific set of sight words.

The last worksheet (#6) is a blank template. Use this worksheet if you are working on a specific set of sight words.

Sight Word Instruction

Practice, repetition, and repeated exposure to sight words is critical when developing a sight word vocabulary. Ideally teach words that appear most frequently; a mere twenty-five words account for approximately a third of written material and many of these words are phonetically irregular. Sight words should be introduced in a cumulative manner. As new words are introduced, old words should be reviewed.

Our worksheets provide the perfect complement to a lesson by offering opportunities for your child or student to practice the sight words using both reading and writing activities.

55 Fun Sight Word Activities That Work

It’s a myth that blindly memorizing every letter in a sight word is the only way to learn it.

sight word activities

Teachers are always on the hunt for great sight word activities. Sight words are any words readers recognize automatically “by sight”—for fluent readers, that’s almost all words! High-frequency words, the most commonly occurring words in written English, like those on the Dolch list , are often thought of as the most crucial sight words.

It’s a myth that blindly memorizing every letter in a sight word is the only way to learn it. The science of reading tells us that linking sounds and letters is the most effective way for kids’ brains to learn any word. Many common words are easy to tackle using beginning phonics skills (like “at,” “can,” “him,” etc.), so staying true to a strong phonics curriculum is one way to support kids’ sight word learning. Even irregularly spelled words have decodable parts, e.g., kids can use the sounds of “s” and “d” to help with “said,” even if the “ai” is unexpected. Experts often call these words “heart words” to call out for kids that they should learn the unexpected word parts “by heart.” (If all this is unfamiliar to you, it can feel overwhelming, but you’ve got this! Check out teaching guru Jillian Starr’s explanation for more help.)

Corrections Procedure

Correct a child’s mistake by clearly stating and reinforcing the right word several times.

  • Plan a Lesson
  • Teaching Techniques
  • Correcting Mistakes
  • Frequently Asked Questions
  • Questions and Answers

1. Overview

Sight words instruction is an excellent supplement to phonics instruction. Phonics is a method for learning to read in general, while sight words instruction increases a child’s familiarity with the high frequency words he will encounter most often.

Use lesson time to introduce up to three new words, and use game time to practice the new words.

A sight words instruction session should be about 30 minutes long, divided into two components:

  • Sight Words Lesson — Use our Teaching Techniques to introduce new words and to review words from previous lessons — 10 minutes
  • Sight Words Games — Use our games to provide reinforcement of the lesson and some review of already mastered sight words to help your child develop speed and fluency — 20 minutes

2. Plan a Lesson

2.1 introduce new words.

When first beginning sight words, work on no more than three unfamiliar words at a time to make it manageable for your child. Introduce one word at a time, using the five teaching techniques . Hold up the flash card for the first word, and go through all five techniques, in order . Then introduce the second word, and go through all five teaching techniques, and so on.

This lesson should establish basic familiarity with the new words. This part of a sight words session should be brisk and last no more than ten minutes. As your child gets more advanced, you might increase the number of words you work on in each lesson.

2.2 Review Old Words

Begin each subsequent lesson by reviewing words from the previous lesson. Words often need to be covered a few times for the child to fully internalize them. Remember: solid knowledge of a few words is better than weak knowledge of a lot of words!

Go through the See & Say exercise for each of the review words. If your child struggles to recognize a word, cover that word again in the main lesson, going through all five teaching techniques. If he has trouble with more than two of the review words, then set aside the new words you were planning to introduce and devote that day’s lesson to review.

Note: The child should have a good grasp of — but does not need to have completely mastered — a word before it gets replaced in your lesson plan. Use your game time to provide lots of repetition for these words until the child has thoroughly mastered them.

2.3 Reinforce with Games

Learning sight words takes lots of repetition. We have numerous sight words games that will make that repetition fun and entertaining for you and your child.

The games are of course the most entertaining part of the sight words program, but they need to wait until after the first part of the sight words lesson.

Games reinforce what the lesson teaches . Do not use games to introduce new words.

NOTE: Be sure the child has a pretty good grasp of a sight word before using it in a game, especially if you are working with a group of children . You do not want one child to be regularly embarrassed in front of his classmates when he struggles with words the others have already mastered!

3. Sight Words Teaching Techniques

Introduce new sight words using this sequence of five teaching techniques:

  • See & Say — A child sees the word on the flash card and says the word while underlining it with her finger.
  • Spell Reading — The child says the word and spells out the letters, then reads the word again.
  • Arm Tapping — The child says the word and then spells out the letters while tapping them on his arm, then reads the word again.
  • Air Writing — A child says the word, then writes the letters in the air in front of the flash card.
  • Table Writing — A child writes the letters on a table, first looking at and then not looking at the flash card.

These techniques work together to activate different parts of the brain. The exercises combine many repetitions of the word (seeing, hearing, speaking, spelling, and writing) with physical movements that focus the child’s attention and cement each word into the child’s long-term memory.

The lessons get the child up to a baseline level of competence that is then reinforced by the games, which take them up to the level of mastery. All you need is a flash card for each of the sight words you are covering in the lesson.

4. Correcting Mistakes

Of course, every child will make mistakes in the process of learning sight words. They might get confused between similar-looking words or struggle to remember phonetically irregular words.

Use our Corrections Procedure every time your child makes a mistake in a sight words lesson or game. Simple and straightforward, it focuses on reinforcing the correct identification and pronunciation of the word. It can be done quickly without disrupting the flow of the activity.

Do not scold the child for making a mistake or even repeat the incorrect word. Just reinforce the correct word using our script, and then move on.

5. Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Progress is slow. We have been on the same five words for a week! A: It is not unusual to have to repeat the same set of words several times, especially in the first weeks of sight words instruction. The child is learning how to learn the words and is developing pattern recognition approaches that will speed his progress. Give him time to grow confident with his current set of words, and avoid overwhelming the child with new words when he hasn’t yet become familiar with the old words.

Q: Do I really need to do all five techniques for every word? A: Start out by using all five techniques with each new word. The techniques use different teaching methods and physical senses to support and reinforce the child’s memorization of the word. After a few weeks of lessons, you will have a sense for how long it takes your child to learn new words and whether all five exercises are necessary. Start by eliminating the last activity, Table Writing , but be sure to review those words at the next lesson to see if the child actually retained them without that last exercise. If the child learns fine without Table Writing, then you can try leaving out the fourth technique, Air Writing . Children who learn quickly may only need to use two or three of the techniques.

Q: How long will it take to get through a whole word list? I want my child to learn ALL the words!!! A: That depends on a number of factors, including frequency of your lessons as well as your child’s ability to focus. But do not get obsessed with the idea of racing through the word lists to the finish line. It is much, much better for your child to solidly know just 50 words than to “kind of” know 300 words. We are building a foundation here, and we want that foundation to be made of rock, not sand!

Kristina Demers

What age to start?

ADMIN – Hi Kristina,

You will have to calibrate based on your child. Do a couple of lessons, and if they want to learn, have the attention span, and they are able to grasp the material, keep on going. If not, pause for a few months before trying again. In developmentally normal children, I have seen this as early as three, and as late as five. Ideally I will start a year before they go to school, because I like my kids to be reading before starting school, but if a child is an earlier or a later bloomer I will let nature be my guide.

My only exception to this developmentally based timing is if a child is falling behind grade level. In that case, I would be a bit more pushy.

Found this site to be very helpful, being a teacher of very challenged students who are struggling with reading and basic sight words. The games and instructions and other activities are great. I will certainly have lots of fun teaching my kids using these games and activities.

I’ve been looking for something like this for years. It allows me to create activities with the very words I’m teaching. I teach intervention to first grade students who are struggling to learn to read. I plan to share this site with my fellow teachers so they may enrich their instruction by using real strategies for teaching sight words. It is a multi-sensory approach that makes so much sense. I’m looking forward to using it this fall.

When teaching a sight word do you apply all 5 strategies consecutively in one lesson, or use each strategy over the course of five days?

ADMIN – Hi Ashley,

We do recommend using all 5 teaching techniques consecutively in one lesson. The child will learn the words by repetition, and this will give him/her lots of repetitions of each word in a variety of ways. You may see after a while that your child has a firm grasp of a word after going through just 4 or even just 3 of the techniques. Then it’s okay to drop the last one or two techniques, but it depends on the particular child.

I would love to implement this in my teaching strategy. It will definitely enhance my children’s vocabulary as well as writing skills using words in complete sentences. However, how can I do this with a class of 3, 4 and 5 year-olds at different learning levels?

ADMIN – Hi Charlotte,

Since our games and flashcards are fully customizable, you can print exactly what you need to suit the needs of your particular students. Our games are best played in small groups, so you can divide up the children by reading level and give each group a game with a different word list. For our Fishing game, print different level words on different colors of paper. Then everyone can play together, with advanced kids “fishing” words on green paper, for example, and less advanced kids “fishing” the words on blue paper.

This is awesome. Thanks a lot. Now I can help the slow learners using this method.

Please give me the list of words for my five-year-old daughter…

ADMIN – Hi Bandana,

The Dolch sight words lists are the most commonly used in American schools. For a five-year-old, I would suggest you start by reviewing the Dolch Pre-Kindergarten word list . If she already knows those words really well, then you can move on to the Dolch Kindergarten words .

Hi, I’m teaching English to third and fourth grade students, but English is their second language (Spanish being their first) so I would like to know if I can teach them the sight words with this 5 techniques, and which sight words list would you recommend for them? I want to teach them how to spell the words and how to write them.

ADMIN – Hi Brenda,

Yes, this would be a good way to help them start learning Sight Words. I would use the Dolch Sight Words list. Both Dolch and Fry are good starting points, representing the most commonly used words in English. The reason I prefer Dolch is that it is the most widely used in education and consequently has a lot more resources available for teachers and students.

' src=

Would you make any changes to these techniques if using them with a small group?

ADMIN – Hi there!

For small groups, the techniques are very similar. Go back and forth between having the children do the exercises as a group, and calling on specific children to do the exercise one at a time. The key is making sure no one falls behind without your noticing while the other kids in the group master the word and move ahead.

Kristina G.

Our school uses the Fry Words. We have many students that have met their grade level goal and have surpassed. Some even know all 1,000 words. My question is what to do when they know all of the sight words? I have suggested practicing spelling them, as well as using them in sentences for practice. Do you know of anything else? Thank you in advance for any help you can give! Kristina

Those are great ideas for reinforcing and cementing students’ knowledge of the sight words. We also recommend encouraging the students in their reading habits. With a solid foundation of phonics and sight words, kids should be well on their way to fluency in reading!

Sujatha Chandrasekaran

Hello, I am very happy to find this website for the cause of children. Thank you so much for your detailed materials. I Have a 4.3 yr old kid. She is good in grasping language and math but She is finding it difficult to copy write. Earlier she was incomplete but now she is not even starting her work in school. Teacher non-cooperative.. I decided to take the charge and now teaching her basic phonics and the way to join the letters. what else could I do to make her see the board and copy the lessons with ease.

ADMIN – Hi Sujatha,

Try using our Teaching Techniques, especially Air Writing and Table Writing , to be sure your daughter understands the words she is supposed to be learning. If she does not have a problem learning the words, maybe the lesson simply needs to be more fun. Reinforce the lessons with one or more of our Sight Words games . She will get to play a fun game while at the same time getting plenty of practice working with her newly learned words.

' src=

i have been working with my daughter for last two years.she was a non reader.i used “look and say method” and associated the words with the pictures.

' src=

I personally find the best way to learn sight words is watching videos. For example my daughter love this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvnNKSQWMPU it’s fun, have nice music and pretty pictures.

' src=

That’s 2 clever by half and 2×2 clever 4 me. Thanks!

Hello, How many words per lesson?

ADMIN – Hi Carolina,

It depends on the age and attention span of your child, but we generally recommend introducing 3-5 new words in a lesson. Go through all five teaching techniques with the first word, then repeat all five techniques with the second word, etc., to give your child plenty of repetition and lock the word into the child’s long-term memory. After introducing the new words, you may want to review some previously covered words and then play a game to reinforce the new and reviewed words.

Prachi Tripathi

Hello There, I would like to know if this kind of activity will work for a child with borderline IQ. As I am working with children having learning disabilities. I try finding for and updating as many new activities and techniques I can to teach the sight words. Thank you.

ADMIN – Hi Prachi,

Actually, many of our teaching techniques were originally developed for children with learning disabilities. For children with lower than average IQ, we recommend spending lots of time on the Arm Tapping , Air Writing and Table Writing techniques. You should cover fewer words per session, with multiple, on-going review opportunities using a variety of the sight words games . The average child needs 4-14 exposures to a word for the word to stick. So children who struggle with reading need many more review and practice opportunities.

' src=

Began using this with students selected for summer services, kindergarteners going to 1st grade who knew less than 20 of the 60 kindergarten sight words. The students love the additional activities and for most it does help get the word into long term memory so they can remember it. The majority of these students have English as their second language, so I review words that have been learned, stopping if a word has been forgotten and focusing on that word. If they recall all of those words I introduce one more word. Three to five a day would be too overwhelming for them. We won’t get them to 60 by the time school starts, but they will know more than they do now.

' src=

At what point would you expect the students to learn how to spell these words? Or would you? Thanks!

ADMIN – Hi Ann,

For every sight word you teach your child, we recommend you go through all five of our Teaching Techniques . Two of those techniques — Spell Reading and Arm Tapping — require the child to spell the word letter by letter. Two more — Air Writing and Table Writing require the child to say and write the letters of the word.

' src=

When teaching my child should I do all techniques with the same word and then move to the next word, or do I do one technique with all words and then move to the next technique?

ADMIN – Hi Britni,

Go through all five techniques with the first word, then go through all five techniques with the second word. Kids need lots and lots of repetition with each word for it to stick in their little brains!

' src=

Hi. We use the Jolly Phonics programme and this has word lists called tricky words. These are in cursive writing. Should our flashcards be in cursive and should children be joining the letters when air and table writing? Thanks for this fantastic resource.

ADMIN – Hi Kathryn,

Our philosophy is to focus on teaching one concept at a time, in this case memorizing the sight words. I would recommend teaching the printed (non-cursive) sight words as we demonstrate in our Teaching Strategies . After the children know the word itself, you can teach them how to read and write the same word in cursive.

' src=

My son’s teacher has begun with the very basic sight words (eg: the, for, is, etc), however, he does not know his letters yet. [He did not have a rigorous preschool curriculum]. I’m trying to figure out how to help him at home with the sight words, considering that he does not know the alphabet. Do you have any recommendations on how we can work on recognition of sight words given this impediment?

ADMIN – Hi Liz,

I’m afraid it’s impossible to learn to read without knowing your letters. You need to meet with your son’s teacher immediately to come up with a plan for helping him catch up with his classmates.

At home, play Bingo with your child, but instead of using sight words, type in individual letters so he can practice identifying the alphabet letters.

You and the teacher should also look at the second half of our Phonemic Awareness curriculum , starting with Word Families and Beginning Sounds . This will show you how to teach your son the letter sounds.

' src=

I absolutely LOVE this website! I teach special education and have a lot of students that need to learn the basics in reading. This is a great website to get any and all information you need to be successful at teaching the reading basics. I love the clips showing you how to correctly use the sight words and love all of the ideas for the games. There’s so much information that I visit this website multiple times during the day! Thank you for creating such a great way for Teachers and Parents to help their kiddos! I can’t complain that it’s totally free to use! I have recommended this website to all of my colleagues and to the families with special education children and those that aren’t and are just beginning to read! THANK YOU SIGHTWORDS.COM!!!!

' src=

Thank you so much!! I am a first year special education teacher who has been struggling with ways to introduce sight words to my students. I will definitely start implementing this in my classroom and at home with my child who needs the additional help.

Stephen Slates

Although research shows that sight recognition of words causes children to create a large bank of words and seems to speed reading growth, too much emphasis on sight-word instruction leaves students with little strategies for decoding unknown words. Our language is alphabetic and based in units of sound (phonemes). The majority of sight words are actually very decodable if students are taught the full extent of our language code. If I teach the word “has” for instance with all the strategies mentioned, what has the student learned? One word: “has”. But, if I teach them that s actually has two sounds, s and z, and often makes a z sound at the end of words, I open up the possibility for decoding hundreds of words. I prefer to teach the words phonetically first, if possible, and then reinforce afterwards so the student always knows to go back to the board and think about the code FIRST, before relying on context clues, pictures, and etc.

ADMIN – Hi Stephen,

We agree. You need sight words for speed, to have a base bank of words, and for phonetic irregularities. You need the decoding that comes out of phonemic awareness and phonics to be able decode new words. Hope you got the chance to check out our new Phonemic Awareness lesson plans.

' src=

I cannot believe the amount of data and material provided on this website solely for learning sight words! My daughter and I were having a difficult time learning sight words for school but I am looking forward to implementing these techniques now… Thank you so much!

' src=

Some advice please….. I am a teacher and have been teaching sight words for years. My son has started school this year and has been given lists of words to complete for homework. He is given a group of 10 words at a time which he needs to be able to read (within 3 seconds without sounding out) and spell (without error) before he is given the next list. My question…. I have never made students in their first year of school spell words (in a spelling test setting) before they move on to a new list of words. In your opinion do you believe this will create ‘better knowledge’ of the words or hinder progress and confidence as you don’t seem to move as fast through the words?

ADMIN – Hi Rachel,

Sight words are, by definition, words that should be recognized almond instantly, not spelled almost instantly. The emphasis at his grade level should be on recognition, not reconstruction (spelling) when learning sight words. Otherwise, as you note, the task is slowed and overly laborious.. if possible, get the lists and teach them to him yourself. Then , he can focus on spelling later. The core purpose of learning sight words is to make reading, not spelling, more fluent. In other words, you are right!

' src=

Thanks for all the great info!! I will be implementing this with my kiddos this school year. My only question is: “How long do you work on a set of words?”

ADMIN – Hi Kezia,

I work on a new set of words until they are mastered. After that, I will return to them occasionally so they don’t forget them. But, I never move onto new words before the old ones are mastered.

' src=

My daughter knows them but is having trouble writing them. What’s the best way to help her?

ADMIN – Hi Tiffany, Your daughter may visually and aurally recognize the sight words. She may correctly repeat or reproduce them orally. However, writing is a motor skill that requires proper hand-eye coordination, so to develop that skill, your daughter needs to practice writing using the five teaching techniques we explained. There is no shortcut to this. The more she practices, the more her “muscle memory” develops alongside her visual and aural recognition of the words.

' src=

GURUPRASAD C M

Are there any other strategies for teaching non-native English-speaking students?

ADMIN – Hi Guruprasad,

The techniques for teaching native English speaking kids should be the same for non-native speakers of English. Language learning is universal. The teaching strategies presented on this site apply for languages (that are read from left to right, that is, which explains the direction of the arrows under each word). For mastery, we recommend that you quiz your students with flash cards for the words you think they should know. You can use our card generator to create flash cards from a custom word list. Set aside any words the student stumbles on, and give those words further review using our five teaching techniques . Good luck!

' src=

I am so grateful to have found this site, as I am teaching my daughter sight words and have struggled to find the best way to teach them, and finding techniques like these I am hoping will help. I will let you know. I do however want to know: are the dolch list for each grade on here standard, or the basic ones most schools use? I know that I can edit and add my own but I have read so many sites about CVC sight words being the sight words to do. I guess I just want to know if I am doing all I can for my daughter. If you can, please help. Thanks.

' src=

This site is wonderful, and I finally feel empowered to teach my children to read! Can you recommend how to pick which words to teach in a lesson (meaning, which 3 do I pick? Go in alphabetical order? order of frequency? a random 3 from the flashcards?). Is there a sequence to start teaching the Pre-K and K (Dolch) or first 100 (Fry) words that works best? Thanks for your help!

' src=

Love reading Sight Words.

' src=

I think that is a great idea to incorporate writing with sounding out words. My 2-year-old is having trouble sounding out the “r” sound. I’ll have to get him a tutor to help him keep up with the other students.

' src=

Debbie Harwell

Would love to see some Science of Reading incorporated into these steps. How about sounding out phonetically, discovering the ‘tricky sounds’ , sounding out the word again- underlining/replacing the regular sound with the tricky sound.

' src=

Sight Words Admin

Hi Debbie, Most experts agree in the complementariness of Science of Reading, or Phonics, with Sight Words. Children will definitely get ahead faster with a good foundation of memorized Sight Words as well as the ability to decode and analyze unfamiliar or confusing sounds through Phonics. The strategies for teaching both are effective following their own discrete, tried and tested systems. However, nothing precludes parents and teachers from employing both strategies within close time ranges.

Gabriel Pérez

Hi! I’m a homeschooler father and found your site looking for resources for my kids’ classes. It is really helpful! I have a question. When I start teaching the sight words, should I begin in the exact order that the words appear in the PDF, or could I organize it as I want to? I know some things need to be taught — or are easy to learn — following a certain order, and I’m wondering if it is the same with sight words.

ADMIN – Hello, Gabriel. Glad we can be of help! As to your question, you do not need to teach sight words in the exact order presented. For instance, some teachers/parents teach the Fry or Dolch lists alphabetically. Others create their lists according to their preferred order.

' src=

Ekändém-Akpanesö

Thanks for your site. Language teaching may be universal; however, teaching in the rural African community where English is not used for communication is quite challenging. Please, we need help. Any assistance would do.
