Kindergarten Sight Words

sight words icon

Sight words are the words that appear most frequently in reading. They are memorized so that a child can recognize commonly used or phonetically irregular words at a glance, without needing to go letter-by-letter. Sight words are also referred to as high-frequency words. Teaching sight words helps students read more fluently and write more efficiently. Starfall offers numerous materials designed to introduce and reinforce beginning sight words. From worksheets and online activities to physical products such as books, writing journals, and instructional cards, a generation of children have improved their reading skills by using Starfall's research-backed learning materials.
