WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO TEACH SIGHT WORDS?

  • It’s critical to teach students to memorize sight words as a whole so that they can recognize them immediately (within 3 seconds) without having to use any strategies to decode them. Imagine how frustrating reading would be if you had to stop and sound out every little word! Once readers master sight words they are able to understand at least half of the words in any particular text. By eliminating the need to stop and decode sight words, readers are able to focus on words that are less familiar and more difficult. And teaching sight words not only helps students read more fluently, but it also helps them write more efficiently too. THE PRINTABLE PRINCESS © 2020
