Sentences With Sight Words
Did you know that using sight words to teach a child to read is NOT the ideal method? In fact, teaching children to read without focusing on phonics and phonemic awareness leads to habitual memorization of word configurations and shapes, which eventually leads to reading problems. While you can use sight words as a minor part of your teaching method, your focus should always be on the use of phonics instructions along with helping your child develop phonemic awareness.
