• The goal for 1st graders is to instantly recognize the first 200 sight words on Dr. Fry's Word List.   Students who have conquered the first 200 words are encouraged to work on the next 100 words. Students will be assessed on their ability to read these sight words at least four times this year. (A few sight words per week will be included in the weekly spelling list. At that point, your student is also responsible for correctly writing/spelling the sight word.) You can find a lot of information about the importance of sight words, the third 100 words, and formatted flash cards by searching "Fry's Word List" on the internet.
