• Kindergarten Sight Words
     
    Our 49 Kindergarten Sight Words (listed below) are the 49 most frequently used words in the English language.  Students who learn these words have a good base for beginning reading.   Many of these words cannot be sounded out because they do not follow decoding rules, so they must be learned as sight words.
