Sight Words

This year we will be working on mastering words from the Fry Sight Word List.  The Fry list is composed of 1,000 of the most commonly used words in the English language.  Recognizing sight words is one of the most effective and powerful reading tools. When children are able to identify sight words, they are able to become successful readers.  Believe it or not, 50% of all reading texts are made up of the same 100 words...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. When readers master sight words they are able to understand at least half of the words in a particular text. By eliminating the need to decode these words, the reader is able to focus on those that are more difficult and less familiar. 

Students will be bringing home a list of words, please study the words and return the list once your child can easily read the words without sounding them out.  Students will receive a treat each time they master a list. They will keep up with their progress in their data notebooks.
