The games are designed to help the child further understand and recognize the words that they are learning. These words are intended for Kindergarten aged children.
The sight word method was developed and made infamous by Edward William Dolch PhD when he published his book, "Problems in Reading". He compiled a list of 220 words that are most commonly used in the English language and which he felt must be mastered in order to understand reach a proficient level of reading in the English language. Your child will love the words, games, and pictures as they flip through the flashcards and games. Over 50 pages of worksheets, flashcards, and games to keep your child both entertained and teach them at the same time!
These words are often called sight words because unlike many words these 220 words cannot be sounded out and therefore must be learned via sight. These words are utilized in many educational settings to assist language learners in mastering reading skills. There are five levels of words divided up into grade levels:
• First Grade
• Second Grade
• Third Grade
With each successive level the words become more difficult and the words associated with each list are those most often used in the coinciding reading level.
The idea is that these are high frequency words in the English language that are not as easy to read phonetically. Thus, learning them by sight improves the child's chances of success in reading. We believe that using sight word books and sight word worksheets is a fantastic method for helping your child achieve that success they deserve. In fact, these methods are used to teach ESL students and new language learners.
The Dolch sight words were later expanded by Fry who developed the Fry word list and Fry sight words which are similar to the Dolch words. Being able to quickly read through the Dolch sight word list will place your child or student at a great advantage on spelling, reading, and other tests.
