First Grade Sight Words

First Grade Sight Words

– in no particular order

Interestingly, when both of my children approached first grade, the term sight words seemed to vanish. Instead, these high frequency words were referred to as wall words. These words were prominently displayed on the wall in both of my children’s first grade classrooms. By the end of first grade, many children have obtained a sight word vocabulary; they can automatically recognize high frequency words by sight. In other words, they do not need to sound out these words when reading. This is actually an important first-grade milestone.
