How to teach sight words
Sight words break phonetic rules. Since they don’t perfectly follow the code, kids have to learn to read and spell them. Here are some tips for teaching sight words:
-Introduce 2-4 new sight words at a time
-Introduce the words in sentences
-Review sight words daily with flashcards
-Let your student’s sight word flashcard pile build up to about 20-25 words. Afterwards, start taking old sight words out.
-Have your student read and spell sight words out-loud. In this way, your student can learn to read and spell them at the same time.
-Of course, teach phonics sounds alongside sight word activities. Phonics sounds help students break the pieces of the code that are regular. Though sight words are irregular, nearly every sight word contains some phonetic components.
