sight words

        We will be teaching the children to read sight words in Kindergarten.  These are words that are used frequently in the children’s reading and writing and that we would like to have them recognize automatically.  They will be assessed on their ability to read these words at different intervals throughout the year. 

        You will receive flashcards for use at home.  These will be located in an envelope at the back of your child's Homework Notebook.  To make learning the words easier, we will introduce 2-3 words at a time.  The sight words of the week will be listed in the weekly newsletter. For those of you who would like a head start (or have children who are already ready to read) we are listing all of the words below.


        Remember, we will introduce the words a few at a time.  As your child is introduced new words, please encourage him/her to spell them correctly when writing at home and to practice reading them.
