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

As we worked to develop our list, Kindergarten Sight Words and 1st Grade Sight Words quickly became too numerous for one list. 

As I scoured my resources, it quickly became apparent that there are no Kindergarten or 1st Grade Sight words out there.

The letter Q is quite advanced, to begin with. 

  • QUEEN is the only word I have found to be worthy of adding to sight learning. Your child will see this word from an early age in most of their storybooks and their movies.

You can add this word to the sight word activities you are working with for another letter of the alphabet.

  • QUICK is also an option to add, whenever you feel your child is ready for a challenge.

If you feel as though you are struggling to break through to your child’s understanding of the sight words, do not give up. 

How to teach sight words is difficult, no matter how you look at it. Words that start with the letter Q are extra odd. There is a lot of guessing involved. What helps one kiddo could completely confuse another. Just keep it fun and constructive!
