Sight Words: Words that are recognized immediately. Sometimes sight words are thought to be irregular, or high frequency words (e.g., the Dolch and Fry lists). However, any word that is recognized automatically is a sight word. These words may be phonetically regular or irregular.

In kindergarten children will be expected to learn color and number words as well as these basic sight words:
