Kindergarten Sight Words

Get started on learning and practicing your sight words! These sight words that we will be learning are broken down by month not to overwhelm you or your student.  Practice fun ways to help your child learn his or her sight words. You can write the sight words on index cards and place them around the house. As you call out the word, have your child go and find the correct word, SIGHT WORD SCAVENGER HUNT!!!
