I am homeschooling my son for Kindergarten this year and so far, none of the RAN boards,"Read in 100 lessons" books, Sight Word Flashcards, or even a Sight Word tablet app (that got great reviews from others) worked. My son would get bored after a couple of tries and not even an hour later would forget the words we went through.

Out of desperation and frustration, I went through Amazon trying to find a system that would actually work for him. Somehow I stumbled upon this product and started reading the reviews and descriptions of this system. The price looked reasonable (if it doesn't work then at least I didn't lose too much money) and the system itself seemed to make sense (story with sight words repeated throughout and a short quiz at the end).

2 days after ordering we got it in the mail and I immediately dove into it. Having read the parents workbook, I called my son over to see what the first two sight words (they, go) would do for him. We sat down like we do for our daily reading time and I first read the book outloud while pointing to the words. The book was entertaining enough for him to enjoy the illustrations and short enough that it didn't make him lose focus. After the first time he wanted me to read again so I did. The third time in a row, I asked him to try to read along with me. The fourth time, he was able remember the sight words on each page and even passed the "quiz" on the inside back cover. He was so proud of himself he wanted to do it again, including the quiz. Just to ensure he wasn't just memorizing a pattern, I would point to the words in different order when doing the quiz.

By this time he was so happy he wanted to "read to grandma" so we called my mom and as I pointed to the sight words on each page, he would read them.

Format: Paperback
This set has 25 books and 50 sight words. Obviously, 2 sight words per book. Most of the words in each story are not sight words.

My son's school requires a lot of sight reading, so I'm always on the lookout for books with his sight words in them. This is not my favorite set. They could have put more than 2 sight words in each book, and made it less about phonics. To read these you have to know long vowels (the rules of silent e and double vowels), the rule that "ew" and "oo" can make a U sound, and other rules for sounding out words. But a student will probably be assigned all 50 sight words in the set before they get to all these other rules.

Also, some words in these books are just too big for the young beginning reader. Pepperoni and Butterflies, really? They have a picture of a pizza, or a picture of butterflies, to give the student clues what these big words are supposed to be. I prefer a book to have words that are on the right reading level for the child, to reinforce words they already know, and introduce a few new ones in each book. (Rather than having big, new words they have to guess from looking at pictures, throughout the whole book.) Some people will feel that learning through context and clues is the right way, but it's just not my preference.

The Bob Books Sight Words sets are more what I'm looking for. Simple words that don't rely so much on pictures, and more sight words per book. Also a word introduced in one book will appear in the next book, which will introduce 3 more words, so the set progresses from one book to the next. This Sight Word Readers set has no progression.

I don't think these are worth it for the price.

Anyone else notice that the (Search inside this book) isn't even for this set of books? It shows the box, but then it shows the content of what appears to be the inside of a reproducible version of these books.
These books really are a joke for the price. I will be returning them. First of all, they are tiny and bore my kids to death. The so called workbook is a just as tiny as the books so forget about using them for more than one child unless you are very talented at blowing them up on a copier. These might work for a 3 year old, but my 2 four year olds and five year old are completely uninterested. The age range listed is 4-8 year olds and I just don't see it unless they are having trouble. We home school and they are far beyond having the same thing repeated over and over without any story line. They want real stories and these just aren't it. They read through all books in less than an hour without my help and have no desire to read them again. I agree that children need repetition, but they also need to be challenged.
Here is an example;
THAT HAT, 8 pages. Page 1- That hat. Page 2- My pretty hat. Pages 3 through 7- That is my pretty hat. Page 8- That is your pretty hat. That and Pretty are the focus sight words.
This is more of a picture book than anything and we have gotten the Sight Word Tales: 25 Read-Aloud Storybooks That Target & Teach the Top 100 Sight Words series instead. They contain real stories that the kids enjoy and they can write in and color the reproducibles, which is much more effective in helping recognition anyway. They also provide more of a challenge and kids want to reread these stories, unlike the others.
