First grade students who easily recognize and read the 284 Dolch sight words are typically on or above grade level by the end of the school year. These are the most regularly occurring words in the written English language.
We have put these words in a format that could be easily printed out as flashcards. You can set up the page layout for a 3 x 5 or 4 x 6 card to print horizontally from your home printer. If you don't have access at home, send in the cards to Mrs. Strader and she'll print the list(s) for you. Please indicate which lists you would like to print.
Kindergarten students must know 40 words by the end of kindergarten as a minimum. If your kindergarten student masters these, please begin working on the next list(s).
