If it's true that close to 75% of all words that we read in books, magazines, etc., involve just 220 sight words, it would make sense to have kids master those sight words in the appropriate grades, wouldn't it?
Quick mastery is a must for early reading success. When I first started teaching, I have no recollection of teaching sight words. I'm sure I did. I HOPE I did. Word walls didn't appear that long ago! Really!
I have a strong committment to not only have the kids learn their sight words and apply them not only to reading but into their writing as well.
I've just posted this in my store. I hope it bowls you over! Very helpful, fun, and easy to implement!
