Sight Words

Throughout the year we will be learning sight words. The goal is for them to be able to read them quickly and write them correctly in their writing pieces. A great way to practice them at home is for your child to write them or to find them in books as you are reading at home. Students are expected to read 28 sight words by the end of the third quarter.


Words we have learned: we, the, go, to, is, like, see, it, and, with, can, my, at, me, play, look, in, am, an, are, be, you, here, not, got, up, so, no, he, she, went
