Our 27 Kindergarten sight words are the most frequently used words in the English language. Many of these words do not follow decoding rules and, therefore, cannot be sounded out. Students who are able to learn these words by sight will establish a good foundation for beginning reading and writing skills.The goal is for each student to be able to read and write these 27 sight words by the time they leave Kindergarten.Kindergarten Sight WordsItoonatseetheainmeallareyoucanthisgoandamiswithhaveforlikeitsaidbigupmyHere are some suggestions for creative ways to practice these sight words with your child:
*Write your words in shaving cream on the bathroom wall during bath time.*Write your words in sidewalk chalk outside.*Shape your words in cheerios or raisins. Enjoy eating each word after you’ve spelled it correctly.*Write your words on the sidewalk with a paintbrush and water.*Dump sugar onto a big plate. Write your words in the sugar with your finger.*Write your words in glitter glue.*Write your words with rainbow colors (using markers.)*Write your words on a dry erase board.*Write your words on a Magna Doodle or Etch-a-Sketch.*Mold your words using play-dough.*Type your words in fancy letters on the computer.*Spell your words from letters cut out of magazines.*Make up a cheer for each word.*Find the words and cut them out of magazines.Practice these words often and HAVE FUN!If after testing your child in Sept/Oct, they are able to identify all of these words, I will give you the first grade list. That is as high as I will go. My advice would then be to read and work on building fluency and comprehension skills with your child to ensure that they master these words.
