Fry’s Sight Words Activities
These Fry’s Sight Words Activities are perfect for building pre-reading skills for your young readers. Fun, engaging teaching resources to help kids learn their first sight words!
Sight words, or high frequency words, as they are sometimes known, are the most commonly used words that young children are taught and memorise.
This is so that they can automatically recognise these words while reading without having to use decoding strategies.
Knowing sight words allows students to maintain speed and fluency while reading, which is needed to comprehend a text.
Sight Words are a list of words that appear on almost any page of text. They are often know as 100 common used words, or ‘magic’ 100 sight words, and are required to support the development of reading.
There are many sight word lists and programs, all with sight words that are appropriate for the reading ability of the student.
They include words that are difficult to spell or sound out, like:
learning Sight Words, as part of a Phonics literacy program, is a critical part of the reading process. Just know that memorising high-frequency words is not the only piece in the learning-to-read puzzle. And learning sight words alone or in isolation will not help your kids learn to read.
Knowing Sight words or being able to automatically recognise, pronounce, and understand words in context will help students to read with accuracy and fluency, which in turn builds comprehension.
So teaching Sight Words is pretty important to producing successful Readers!
