• First grade students are responsible for knowing all sight words on both the kindergarten and first grade sight word lists by the end of first grade. The more you read with your children, the more words they will learn. These words are important for students to master for both reading and spelling. The mastery of these words allows students to achieve greater reading and writing fluency.  

    There are many activities you can play to reinforce the words as well, such as, sight word bingo, match the word (make 2 flash cards for each word, put words face down and play a matching game), or word search (finding the words in books, newspapers, and magazines). If you would like any other ideas please feel free to contact me. Have fun!
