Sight words are VERY important in first grade. Although sight words are practiced multiple times a week in class it is pertinent that they are reiterating their skills by practicing at home.
Please make sure that your child is practicing their sight words at home weekly. They will be officially tested on them twice a quarter, once at progress report and another time at report card.
The first 200 sight words can be found in your child's MOOSE folder. If they know how to read all 200 words within 3 seconds, have them practice the spelling of the words.
