Flash Cards

Referencing both Dolch and Fry sight word list and instant word list, respectively, these flash cards incorporate numerous high frequency words. After further analysis, this product contains the following mix of words:

  • Includes 91 Dolch sight words, representing 41% of Dolch’s sight word list,
  • Includes 14 Dolch nouns, representing 14% of his nouns list (Note A),
  • Includes 2 Fry instant words (each & other), which are among the top 100 words (Note B), and
  • Includes 1 word (ironically the word is “word”) that is not included on either Dolch or Fry’s high frequency word lists (Note C).

Note A: The following nouns were included in the flash card set: bed, box, car, cat, dog, egg, fish, leg, pig, ring, sun, time, top & toy.

Note B: Many of the 91 Dolch words are also on Fry’s instant word list.

Note C: This word is included on our school’s first grade wall word list.

Overall, this is a good product containing durable index size flash cards. The font is bold, clear and an ideal size. Unfortunately, it does contain one flaw; it includes nouns that are not phonetically irregular. These words should not be taught using traditional sight word instruction but rather phonetic decoding, e.g. /d/, /o/ and /g/ when put together says dog. When you come upon these words, make sure you teach your child how to decode these words properly.

Sight words flash cards help a child develop a sight word vocabulary. This product also offers some teaching tips, e.g., begin by using a small amount of flash cards, as well as activities, e.g., writing sentences, to help a child automatically recognize these words.
