OI / OY Sight Word List

Oi Oy Sight Word List


Reading OI/OY Words

Around second or third grade, children learn about oi/oy words.  Below is a list of oi/oy words.  Begin by writing the words on index cards. Continue practicing with your child until he or she can say the words accurately. Mix the cards up each time to further help with reading practice.

Once your child can read the words on the index cards, print out this list of words. Start by reading the list to him or her. Then, have your child read with you. Finally, have your child read independently. The goal is for your child to be able to read this list in under one minute.  Have your child continue to practice until this goal is obtained.

Spelling OI/OY Words

Once your child can read oi/oy words with ease, transition into spelling oi/oy words. Make a T chart with “oi” on one side and “oy” on the other side. As your child finds oi/oy words in books, conversations, signs, or other places, have him or her write the words under the appropriate column. Your child will soon observe that most (but not all) words spelled with “oi” have the sound in the middle of the word, and most words spelled with “oy” have the sound at the end of the root word. Explain to him or her that if you add a suffix at the end of a word, it will look like the oi/oy sound is in the middle, but really it’s still at the end of the root word.
