I have students struggling with sight word acquisition come in first thing in the morning to do their Safari Words. When I taught reading intervention for 2nd graders, most of them had to learn the "Circus Words" (first grade level high frequency words) before advancing onto the Word Safari - 2nd grade lists. However, using this method, they were able to learn 2 years worth of words in one school year.
