Sight words are words that students will frequently see in text. Students are encouraged to memorize these words by sight. Students should recognize and read these automatically (within 3 seconds) without having to use any strategies to decode.
West Hartford has developed a sight word list for students in Kindergarten-Grade 2 based on the Dolch Sight Word List.
There are many fun and engaging ways to practice sight words at home. Please visit the link below for a few sight word game suggestions:
