Kindergarten Sight Word List

Hold Your Kindgarten Students Responsible for Knowing These Sight Words

By

Did you know that the Dolch basic sight words list of 220 words (preschool through third grade) includes 50-75% of all words used in school books, library books, newspapers, and magazines? These are words that can't be learned through pictures.

Sight words (also known as Dolch words and high frequency words) help young readers focus in on a specific list of words that they should be able to recognize and read easily by the end of the school year.

Teachers and parents can use this list of sight words in a multitude of ways:

  • Games like Bingo and Concentration
  • Creative writing
  • Oral practice with flashcards
  • Written and/or oral practice putting the words into sentences
