Believe it or not, 50% of all reading texts are made up of the same 100 words! These words are known as sight words. Sight words are critical to reading not only because they are used so frequently, but also because many of them cannot easily be sounded out or illustrated. When a young reader masters sight words, he's able to understand at least half of the words in a given text, which means that mastering sight words is an extremely important part of comprehension, too.

These printable sight word flash cards are a colorful way to bulk up your kid's word bank, and master sight words in a snap.
