What Are Sight Words?

Sight words are high frequency words that appear in many grade level texts. By learning sight words, children can increase their fluency and build their confidence in reading!

Sight words help with fluency because children can automatically read the word and not have to stop and use their phonics skills to decode it.

There are a few different sight word lists out there. Dolch words lists are one of the most popular.
