Sight Words - Level A
on December 26, 2012
I'm using these cards with my 3 1/2 year old who is starting to learn to read. There are 54 cards, mostly 2-4 letter common words on the front and back, 108 words total. The package states that sight words don't follow phonics rules, but some of these words are arguably phonetic in pronunciation. Still they're good to review often as they're very common words and he should be able to pick up on them quickly when reading a book.
I'm also using them to help build sentences. Since he can't quite write the letters/words yet, the cards are laid out in a line to form a short sentence that he can sound out or pick up from memory. I also have a tabletop pocket chart from Smethport that they can fit into. These are used in addition to the level B and C set.
Here are the words included in this set:
a, all, am, and, are, at, ate, away, be, bed, big, black, blue, box, brown, but, came, can, car, cat, come, did, do, dog, down, each, eat, egg, find, fish, for, four, funny, get, go, good, have, he, help, here, I, in, into, is, it, leg, like, little, look, make, me, must, my, new, no, not, now, of, on, one, other, our, out, pig, play, pretty, ran, red, ride, ring, run, said, saw, say, see, she, so, soon, sun, that, the, there, they, this, three, time, to, too, top, toy, two, under, up, want, was, we, well, went, what, where, white, who, will, with, word, yellow, yes, you
