Sight Word NoteThis year in Kindergarten we will encourage the mastery of these words through our incentive “Zipping Through The Sight Words!!” We will be assessing students every 9 weeks on the words. They will be required to read the established amounts of words from the Fry’s First 100 Words. We will introduce and practice a list a week. Please feel free to advance past us in practicing at home.
For your child to be successful, we encourage that you go over the words on a regular basis with your child.
