4 Phases of Learning Sight Words

Before a child starts our sight words curriculum, it is important that he be able to recognize and name all the lower-case letters of the alphabet. When prompted with a letter, the child should be able to name the letter quickly and confidently. Note that, different from learning phonics, the child does not need to know the letters’ sounds.

Having a solid foundation in the ability to instantly recognize and name alphabet letters will make teaching sight words easier and more meaningful for the child.
