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. Breaking it down by letter will help you keep the lessons concise. Doing so also helps your star student keep on track from week to week.

KINDERGARTEN SIGHT WORDS:

  • tell
  • that
  • to
  • too
  • two
  • the
  • then
  • this
  • they
  • toy
  • tree
  • try

 

1ST GRADE SIGHT WORDS:

 

  • table
  • thank
  • their
  • there
  • they’re
  • these
  • thing
  • think
  • those
  • three
  • today
  • together

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. There is a lot of guessing involved. What helps one kiddo could completely confuse another. Just keep it fun and constructive!

When your kiddo needs a break, make sure to give them some free time doing creative activities such as coloring by letters!
