Sight Word Practice
I was once a Kindergarten Teacher so I remember using a list like this over and over inside the classroom, and sending them home too. I also have three daughters so believe me, I know these words! If you are getting your child ready for Kindergarten this should be top priority on your list.
If they know all 100+ sight words before walking in that first day they will be WAY ahead of others and make for a great year. As you can imagine, many classrooms have a lot of children in them. Knowing these words is key to their success when it comes to reading.

These are the first basic ones you should start with, then buy these flash cards with 169 total to work on before they start their year. You can print it out here, then cut these out if you want and use them that way. Draw them out of a hat to make the practice session fun, or say the word and have them circle where it is on the page.
Sight Word You Worksheet
These are just a few fun ways of learning these words. I would suggest getting the flash cards to use on a daily basis as well as getting this workbook with multiple activities inside. If you can make learning fun that is the key. Let me talk about my favorite all time learning mechanism for this age too though.
Understanding that every letter has a sound and that sound never changes is key. You may think that you are pronouncing the sound correctly, but you may be off. Seriously, the BEST way to teach children letter sounds is this video.
Both of these are under $9 each which is a steal. You can find the video on Amazon Prime Video too for a little less. Believe me, you will be singing their song in your sleep too. It’s catchy!

How to Teach Sight Words
It is all about repetition folks. At home is not the only place you should bring them out though. The car when you’re a taxi driver here and there is a great time to go over them too. When you’re in the grocery store have them look for them on the outside of packages too!
It’s really a matter of memorization, similar to multiplication facts. Practice makes perfect. AND if you are involved, making songs out of them, playing sight word games, and involved in the process it will be more fun.

Once they have mastered at least the printable list above (and letter sounds) you can add more words with the flash cards and then start reading BOB books! At this point you will see the fruits of your labor. It is SO exciting for both of you when they read their first book!! Learning to read and write are the two key elements when starting school.
Color by Sight Words
Start with high frequency words and read sight words daily. When students practice saying and write sight words repetitively their confidence will grow exponentially. Then when it comes to putting it all together, their reading fluency will soar and in 1st, 2nd grade and 3rd grade they will likely read beyond their grade level.
