The majority of the words your children read are sight words. That means they are words that are memorized. It is important for your children to know the appropriate sight words for their grade level to help them be successful in reading. I have included the Dolch sight word lists for preschool through third grade. These are words they will see often in their reading at their grade level. Practice reading them with your child. You will also want to write them on flashcards for practice as well. Mixing up the order helps to make sure they are memorizing the word and not the order the words are listed.

Once your children know the Dolch sight words for their grade level, they may move on to the next grade level list.
