Sight words are words that generally cannot be sounded out phonetically, or have a silent letter. These are words children will simply need to memorize by sight through repetition from reading and targeted learning.
We’ve created some helpful activities and worksheets you can use so that your kindergartner can quickly learn these important words. Here are some Sight Word Freebies you can use with your students. Some of these are previews of what you’ll find in our Site Word of the Week Program and some are not. Many of the activities have a hands-on element that is sure to engage your kindergarten students.
