Sight Words

Sight words are words that do not follow regular phonetic patterns but they are so commonly used that it is important that children learn to recognize and read them with automaticity. It's important to remember that the human brain can only hold about 8 items at a time so when teaching sight words, introduce them a few words at a time rather than drilling all of the sight words that you want your students to learn.
