40 Kindergarten Sight Words
What I did:
I wrote each of these out on 3x5 notecards which then became our flashcards. They have worked quite well for us. Start with 4 words and add 4 more each week. Run through the flashcards 1-3 times a daily.
It is helpful to read with your little learner. When you come to one of their sight words, pause so your little learner can say the word. Try to keep the number of sight words you do this with low because, trust me, YOU will get confused trying to remember when to pause. Four sight words is the max I can keep track of and successfully remember to pause. Your little learner might be able to keep track of more sight words (mine does). Still, keep the number you have to remember low for your own sanity. Your little learner can always (and probably will) pipe up when they see a word they recognize.
I made a copy of this list for you. It's available via Google Docs. Click the button to grab your copy.
Thanks so much for hanging out with me and learning a new way to help your little learner establish a strong reading life.
