Sighting Sight Words

Reading takes up a large portion of our everyday lives. Even if you don’t realize it, much of your day-to-day activities include some sort of reading comprehension. Whether it be a menu at a restaurant, street sign while driving, recipes when cooking or spending the afternoon with the newspaper or a good book, we are surrounded by written messages.

“Sight words” are frequently used words we see or use in language; and are important tools for young children developing reading comprehension. Just 12 sight words comprise up 25% of the words we read on a daily basis, and 50 sight words make up 50%. When a child learns to recognize these whole words by sight, they are able to provide context and comprehension for the rest of the sentence, as opposed to sounding out every letter of every word. 

Here at Rainbow Child Care Center, we work hard to help your child learn and identify these words through the use of our Sight Word cards as well as by incorporating them into our daily lessons! Below are some ways that you can help your child at home:

  • Print out Rainbow’s Sight Word Cards off of the Pre-K Academy Portal.
  • Use the sight word cards to play games with your child. We post at least two ideas every month on the Activity Calendar on the Pre-K Academy Portal.
  • Point out the words on signs when you are out walking or shopping.
  • Read with your child and when you come across a sight word point it out and  have your child help you read it.
