Read on Sight


Read on Sight is a great way for early readers to practice sight words, an important building block for independent reading. First a sentence is read aloud, then the word tiles scatter, and the player rebuilds the sentence.

At some point we all learn to read without sounding out each letter in a word. We recognize the entire word and know what it means. This skill is especially important for common words that are not easily sounded out. The sooner a child learns these words by sight, the sooner they gain the confidence to read independently. In the 1930s, Edward Dolch went through children's books and created a list of words that were frequently used but hard to sound out. Once a child masters this list, he or she will be a much faster reader, able to enjoy stories without the words getting in the way.
