Here are some suggestions to help your kindergartener master these words. I will add to this list as the year progresses.

  1. Place the words on index cards and run through them as flashcards.
  2. Write the words in sticky notes and place them around your house for reading.
  3. Look for the words in books
  4. Look for the words in the newspaper or magazines and circle them
  5. Have your kids use the words in sentences then spell the word out loud. 

Have a wonderful time with your words.

Below is a list of sight words all second grade students will need to know by the end of the year.
