We will be teaching the children to read some 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 the end of the year as part of a district-wide Kindergarten assessment.
To make learning the words easier, we will group them according to the vowels we study when possible. You will receive flashcards for use at home whenever a new set of words is introduced. 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 throughout the first half of the school year. As your child receives new words, please encourage him/her to spell them correctly when writing at home and to practice reading them.
