Sight words

Sight words are the words that appear most frequently in our reading and writing. Often these words do not have a concrete image that accompanies them. They are high-frequency words that may not be able to be pictured, and as such, they simply must be memorized and understood. Because of their high frequency, readers need to be able recognise, read, and understand them almost immediately upon seeing them. By easily recognizing these sight words, young readers are more likely to approach a text with confidence. They are then able to read with more fluency and better comprehension of the text, and are less likely to get tripped up in their reading by not understanding the words that they are reading.
