What are sight words and why to teach them?
Sight words are words in English language that do not have a simple one-to-one correspondence between sounds and letters - in other words, they have to be memorized and instantly recognized - recognized "on sight," so to speak. In an average, non-technical text, they comprise over 50-70% of total words. Therefore, children who can quickly recognize sight words can read better because while they read, they can focus on inferring the words they do not know while still understanding most of the grammatical structure of the text. Learning sight words is thus a crucial step towards an enormous reading improvement.
