Sight words are words that appear frequently in most of the text people read, but can't easily be sounded out. Learning them helps children become more confident readers. This list of kindergarten sight words includes the most commonly used words every kid should know, also called high frequency words. Although kids won't need to be able to read these sight words until the end of kindergarten, if you've got a pre-K child itching to get started with sight words, this is a great place to start ... before kindergarten rolls around!
