This is a list of words I use in my kindergarten classroom to assess and to teach sight words from. It is a list compiled from various sources and thought it is not an "approved list", it has been so useful to my classroom this year. It helps keep me on track of 2 words per week minimum. It also helps me keep track of what words each student has mastered. Students get a personal sheet with their words and they get to highlight the ones they know an it goes home in their daily homework folder for parents to practice with them. It also helps parents see their students progress through the chart.
