Sight Words: What They Are and Their Advantages

“Sight words, often also called high frequency sight words, are commonly used words that young children are encouraged to memorize as a whole by sight, so that they can automatically recognize these words in print without having to use any strategies to decode.” source Wikipedia

Below you will find some links to explanations about Sight Words.

Sight words are words used frequently in a sentence, such as and, but, do, yes, no, etc…

Nevertheless, most of them are abstract words and therefore are also quite difficult to understand for a very young kid. As a consequence, following Dr. Doman’s teaching, my books focus to easy words that a young kid can understand or can easily learn.

Words such as cat, dog, bee, ball, car, can be learned as a written word because a kid can associate it to the real object.
