Teaching Sight Words to Phonics Learners

When teaching phonics, sight words are an important part of the curriculum. Sight words are words that are commonly found in print materials. Thus, they are high-frequency words that a child will encounter in reading. Examples of sight words include: the, they, of, we, he and she. Although they do not have a concrete image, these words can help a child understand and approach texts with confidence. Here are a few ways to introduce and teach sight words to your child. At Kiz Phonics we have broken down these words into the most common pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions and other parts of speech which offers a logical structure. We offer sight words games online to practice. We also offer printable sight words flashcards for use in classroom teaching.

By understanding the meaning of these words, children can focus more on reading comprehension and meaning rather than decoding each word. This is an essential part of phonics. It's important for a child to learn how to recognize sight words so they can master phonics. By using this strategy, parents can ensure their child's success in reading.

One of the best ways to introduce sight words is to use phonics stories and short sentences. By embedding sight words in stories, children learn to recognize and reading them without decoding. Stories that are fun and easy to remember are ideal. They make learning phonics easier by making the process more enjoyable. So, make sure you take advantage of our 21 phonics short stories as part of your sight words lessons.

While phonics and sight words are two separate topics, both strategies can benefit young children. Sightwords require memorization while phonics requires decoding. By memorizing sight words, students will build confidence and increase their vocabulary. By reading on their own, children will also improve their self-esteem and emotional well-being.
By including simple books and short stories in your phonics lessons, you will help children become more confident when they can recognize sight words, and thus read texts easily.
