• Sight words are critical to reading not only because they are used so frequently, but also because many of them cannot easily be sounded out or illustrated. ... Because they are used so often it is important that readers be able to recognize these wordson sight (hence the term “sight words”). At the Baker Coutny Pre-K/Kindergaraten Center, we use the Dolch Primer and Pre-Primer sight words and focus on specific Words of the Week (WOW).
