Sight words are so important for beginner readers. So many times parents are willing to help their children learn sight words if they have a list of sight words. Attached you will find lists for 300 sight words based on Fry's 300 Instant Sight Word List. You can either test your students on them and check the ones they know or don’t know and send it home so the parents can work with the kids. Or, you can simply send the list home and and ask the parents to help them with the sight words.
This will give your early readers a great start and will take some pressure off you as the teacher when their family helps them learn/reinforce the words at home.
