How to Help Your Child With Sight Words Using Memorization Techniques?

Sight words are the most common words you see in reading. These words don’t follow the phonic rules. Most kids need help memorizing these words to increase reading fluency. Five minutes a day sight reading practice is a good starting place for young readers.

To make sight words recognizable kids need repeated practice. Learning sight words through stories, shared reading, reading out loud, and sight word games makes repetition fun.

Here are three sight word reading tips you can use at home.

3 Memorization Techniques to Help Your Child With Sight WordsMake sight word signs

Sight words need to be memorized. Have your child write out sight words in bright colors. You can make labels for things around the home, name tags and short sentences for favourite things. Placing sight words around your home adds to your child’s sight word vocabulary and gives them extra practise.

Start sight word learning with the common sight words.These ten words make up almost a quarter of all the words used in English-language printed material (the, and, to, is, that, of, a, in, you, it).

Have some one on one reading time

Sight word reading needs one on one time and a lot of repetition. Have your child say the sight word and repeat it several times. Use the sight word in short sentences and give the word context.

Learning the most common words in print means the more your child reads the more they will see these words and the more quickly they will learn them. Read books that repeat words and phrases often.

Fun Sight Work Games

Playing games is a fun way to memorize sight words. You can use the rules of Go Fish with sight words written on index cards.

Use letter magnets to spell sight words and do word searches on the Internet.

Almost every child needs help with sight words.

Help your child read and spell better with sight word books and games.
