Sight Word Lists for Younger Children

Sight words are words frequently used in reading. Many of these words cannot be sounded out, such as “said.” It is a word children must learn to recognize by sight. The more sight words a child knows, the easier it is to read.

Here are two lists we used when teaching. My son’s Kindergarten teacher has sent some home, as well. You can always ask your child’s teacher for a list of words they are learning in class, but this may get you started.

List 1:

I, a, is, up, in, on, look, at, the, am, to, here, come, my, and, go, can, like, me, it, will, see, this, we

List 2:

all, are, day, did, for, get, he, her, his, have, has, no, now, play, she, that, they, was, went, with, you


Come back later this week for some games/activities you can do to learn these words at home.
