Sight Words 101

Learning to read can be difficult for early learners. Phonetically sounding out each word is a slow process that can hinder reading comprehension. Because of this, a list of 315 words has been developed and categorized as sight words.

The most widely accepted list of sight words is the Dolch Sight Words list. Comprised of 220 service words and 95 frequently occurring nouns, the list represents 80% of the words that would typically be found in children’s writings. Learning these words is a skill that will carry forwards as these words also represent 50% of the words found in adult writings.

Understanding and recognizing these words on sight will free students up to focus on pronouncing and understanding the remaining words in the text. These non-sight words will likely more specifically relate to the meaning of the text so this focus will increase reading comprehension.

Repetition and memorization are paramount in learning sight words. Many of the common sight words are irregularly spelled words that would be difficult for early learners to phonetically sound out. Memorizing these words, their spellings, and their pronunciations can also help children as they encounter other irregularly spelled words. The vowel and consonant digraphs that make up these new sounds will be familiar to them because of the sight words.

Using the resources provided by Education.com above may help students recognize and read these sight words, giving them the foundation necessary to become quality readers.
