Sight Words To Learn In Kindergarten

This is the time of the year in Kindergarten when we introduce sight words.  Sight words are the most frequently used words in the English language. They appear so frequently in text that they just need to be memorized. Your child’s confidence and reading ability will improve when he/she knows these words.The important thing to stress with your child is that some words can be sounded out, and some cannot.  Sight words cannot and should not be sounded out. Here is a list of sight words that your Kindergartner should start learning (memorizing) now:
