Sight Word Assessment and Practice
There are 11 sight word lists, 20 words per list. List one is usually introduced in kindergarten, lists two through five in first grade with the remaining lists taught in second grade and possibly third grade.
To assess, have children read leveled lists of flash cards and circle words read incorrectly or with too much hesitation. Words should be read with automaticity. In the example below, the child read 19/20 sight words on list one correctly with no hesitation (green cards) and 18/20 sight words on list two (pink cards). The word said was read incorrectly on list one. The words have and with were read incorrectly on list two. Continue the lists until 4 or more words are read incorrectly. It is helpful to use different color index cards for the different lists.
