Sometimes I will combine games to keep them interesting and challenging while other times I may adjust them to be easier so that no one ends up discouraged. At the end of the day, I always come back to the core ideas behind teaching sight words.

 

SIGHT WORD LIST

Since sight words are best taught early, we have prepared words that start with the letter F for your Kindergartners and 1st Graders!

Some words beginning with the letter F are hard to pronounce one letter at a time. For those words, we rely on memorizing a sight word list. The list below contains the most common letter F sight words for kindergarten and first grade. If you find more words that are difficult for your child, you can always add them to your activities. This list of words can have as many words as you would like.

KINDERGARTEN SIGHT WORDS:
  • Fall

Of all of the words on this list, I have found “find” to be the most useful. We are always playing games with our sight word list, when out and about. The easiest game of all? “Can you find–?”
