Mrs. Thompson's Class Word List
What are Sight Words?
Sight words should be recognized by SIGHT. “Sounding out” will not always work, and students should be able to read the word in 5 seconds...or LESS!
Home Practice Ideas
Sight words are one of the essential skills that you can help with at home. Practicing with your child will make a big difference, but it should be an enjoyable experience. Try this:
- Spell the words in the car.
- Open up your pantry and have your learner check food boxes and packages for sight words.
Sight Word Tips---for Parents!
- Practice in short sessions. Two 8 minute sessions will be more productive than one 16 minute session.
- If the child becomes frustrated, change activities or take a break. If this doesn't help, send a note to the teacher asking for suggestions.
