Starting Sight Words in Kindergarten

Although Sonlight doesn’t include sight word work in its kindergarten curriculum, kindergarten is a GREAT time for your kids to start learning sight words.

We also use a “cumulative” approach–your kids will not struggle reading the words associated with each sight word. We use simple words that they can sound out; and teach high frequency nouns that they will learn simply from “seeing” the word with a picture.

Are you ready to dive in?! Your students will be so proud of all they will be able to read! You can begin here:

Or, if you just want the Context and Crafts:

Both resources are on sale Friday and Saturday!!
