Reading is the most important skill 

that a child will learn in school.

Reading sight words is one of the basic building blocks of learning how to read. A sight word is a word that children can read readily without having to sound it out. To lay a foundation for learning how to read, it is imperative to introduce sight words to children.

Above, you will find a free five page Word Wall Bulletin Board Display Banner for you to download and use for your classroom word wall. I have also included cards for the letters of the alphabet to use along with the banner.

Displaying a word wall in your classroom will be a useful visual aid to your students as they are reading sight words, practicing them, and committing them to memory.

Many sight words are difficult to portray with pictures or hard to sound out through phonics methods. Therefore, these words must be learned as sight words and they must be quickly recognized in order to achieve reading fluency.

Once children have learned and memorized these basic sight words, they are able to read more fluently and with greater comprehension.

There are two lists of reading sight words that are used the most frequently by teachers.  Click on the 2 links below to view go to these pages and download FREE flashcard sets.
