Sight Words | Level 1
eeBoo’s well-considered version of a fundamental educational tool.
Sight Words have been used to facilitate learning to read. Knowing the most frequently encountered words by sight, rather than by "sounding them out", allows fluency in early reading, which makes the learning process more efficient. As such, knowing what sounds are associated with the letters is not necessary; Sight Words create a foundation based not on phonics - "sounding out the word" - but on visual recognition of the word itself.
100 Sight Words (Level 1)
eeBoo Sight Words (Level 1) is a set of colour-coded flash cards arranged in sets of 10. The words are introduced in an order based on complexity and the frequency with which they are likely to be encountered.
Each Sight Word Flash Cards deck include 100 high frequency word flash cards, 18 learning activities, instructions, a checklist, and two rings to help children move through the deck of 100 cards by level.
eeBoo Sight Word Flash Cards, featuring a three-level modified Dolch list, are developed with the insight and advice of the following experts and educators - Dr. Sheelah Brown, Tim Bredl, Julie Kourkoulis, and Irene Martinez.
Levels 1, 2 and 3, include high frequency simple words for children to learn through memorisation, creating a foundation for literacy. Each flash card has the Sight Word on the front and a sentence to provide context on the back of the card.
Level 2 is designed to be used after the child has mastered the cards in the preceding Level 1, and so on for Level 3.
Almost all of the Dolch word list - widely used in schools - is represented in eeBoo's 3 levels of Sight Word cards.
Did you know?
The Dolch Sight Words list is the most commonly used set of sight words developed by educator Dr. Edward William Dolch, who studied the most frequently occurring words in children’s books. The list comprises 80% of the words you would find in a typical children’s book and 50% of the words found in writing for adults. Once a child knows this list of words, it makes reading much easier, because the child can then focus his or her attention on the remaining words.
Dolch words, or sight words, provide an excellent base for reading at an early age. They are often called sight words because some of them can't be sounded out, and need to be learned by sight.
