Sight Words are an important part of learning how to read. There are 2 lists of sight words that a child should learn by sight, the Dolce list and the Fry list. You can teach these sight words in several different ways. You can use flashcards, games, books, videos, apps and more.

I found colorful cards for free at Education.comI found all of the sight words for all 3 levels here (Pre-Kindergarten to First grade).
You can print them on card stock or use laminating sheets and a laminator
I found great sight word worksheets at Confessions of a Homeschooler.com. I found all the words from the dvds in the preschool to first grade sight word sentence packs.
My son enjoys stamping on paper and play dough. I decided to purchase a kids upper and lower case alphabet stamp set by Melissa and Doug. We uses the stamps in the worksheets above and to stamp the sight words on play dough. These stamps will be used for years to come for sights words and spelling.
