Sight Word Fluency Pyramid Sentences are a GREAT way for students to become confident and fluent readers!
Teaching Sight Words
Sight words are the most commonly used words in the English language. A majority of the words that we read in a text are considered sight words. Teaching sight words employs a “whole language approach,” which means it is not phonics based. Students need to know sight words instantly and accurately in order to build fluency and comprehension. When sight words are coupled together with phonics, we build strong, confident and fluent readers. Sight words are not a substitute for teaching phonics. Rather, sight word instruction helps students master reading words that frequently occur in a text so they don’t have to stop and decode every….single….word.
Sight Word Statistics:
*12 Sight Words make up about 25% of those we read and write.
*100 Sight Words make up about 50% of those we read and write.
*About 300 Sight Words account for 75% of those we read and write.
When we teach sight words strategically, specifically and consistently, we build readers who are confident and fluent!
