These words are very common in early children’s books such as picture books and early illustrated books. There are many ways to teach these words to young children. One of the most frequently used strategies is to simply read to toddlers and touch the words with your finger as they appear in the books. Play Go Fish by turning one card over at a time and trying to match the sight word. Make sure your child reads the word aloud as well as matching them by sight. Make two sets of flashcards for the sight words you want to teach your child, then play games with the cards.
For instance, you can play Go Fish with word cards instead of number cards. You can also play Memory; just shuffle the cards and lay them face down. Your child will pick a card then try to find or remember where they saw the matching card.
But even handier is a portable word wall, in which the child has a small, hand-held version of the sight words he/she uses daily, or should practice daily. The word wall and portable word wall comes in handy throughout the day, giving the child easy and quick access to the correct spelling of frequently used words. Hang them around the classroom. Keep the sight words “in sight.”.
Certain words such as and and the will be hard for children to miss but calling attention to print that contains them is key. You can create big posters of a word, talk about the letters it contains and spend time focusing on its meaning. Here are 10 simple steps to teach your child to read at home: 1. Use songs and nursery rhymes to build phonemic awareness. Children’s songs and nursery rhymes aren’t just a lot of fun—the rhyme and rhythm help kids to hear the sounds and syllables in words, which helps them learn to read.
A good way to build phonemic awareness (one of the most important skills in learning to read) is to clap rhythmically. This will vary for every teacher and the sight words they are required to teach. If you have a lot of freedom here, I would choose words that occur most frequently in their reading. Some people use the Dolch word list to help with this – another good option is to look at the Fry’s word list to see which words appear most in their reading.
Learning how to hold a pencil properly and form letters into a word, even if it doesn’t make sense, sets your child on the right path to literacy. Lightly draw outlines of letters to have your child trace over, or help him to spell his own name. The sight words are a collection of words that a child should learn to recognize without sounding out the letters.
The sight words are both common, frequently used words and foundational words that a child can use to build a vocabulary. Combining sight words with phonics instruction increases a child’s speed and fluency in reading. The Confusion of Word Shapes. The problem of teaching sight words is that there are SO many words with similar shapes, and this is what leads to confusion, frustration, and reading problems!
I do a few different assessments when I get new students, and I have a “special” passage to read for all of my older students, usually the Gr 2 and 3 students.
