SIGHT WORD LIST

As we start to list Kindergarten Sight Words and 1st Grade Sight Words, it becomes apparent that there are far too many to try to teach at once. But – we have a solution! We are grouping these challenging words by the letter they start with. This helps to keep lessons fun and on-point without being overwhelming. We love being able to have a short sight word list for the letter H ready for you to share with your child. 

KINDERGARTEN SIGHT WORDS:

  • Had
  • Has
  • Have
  • He
  • Hand

If you’re having any trouble figuring out how to make a sight word memorable to a Kindergartner, my first instinct is always to ask them what they think the word is. Then, you will be more able to find what is connecting for them already. From there, you can follow their natural learning style to a solution that cements their understanding of the letter H. 

1ST GRADE SIGHT WORDS:

  • Head
  • Hours
  • Horse
  • House
  • Hurt

There is no perfect method for how to teach sight words to everyone, only the methods that work best for each individual. If your child is struggling to make a connection, consider trying a new strategy! There are always new sight word activities being created.

If you catch yourself using any of our spelling words in conversation – even if you just see it on a billboard while driving to the grocery store – make a note of it to your child. If you seem hyped about it, they will join in and start to use their new skills to recognize the words, themselves!
