Sight Words

To ensure that your child is able to read all of the required sight words for kindergarten, our sight words are placed on the website for you to practice and help your child read each word with ease.

        When your child is able to read the first list, please send the sight word folder to school in their homework folder for him/her to read the words to us. Upon his/her success, we will place a sticker beside the word list indicating that you may begin working on the next list. This process will contimue until he/she is able to read each word within the list.

 

Thanks so much for your support in helping your child become a successful reader!!!
