Sight words that students need to learn to recognize and read by sight in order to
achieve reading fluency. The most commonly used list of sight words, is known as the
Dolch Sight Word List,
and was created by Edward William Dolch, PhD., and developed basis on his analysis
of a selection of children's literature.
Dolch subdivided his list of words into "service words" (all parts of speech
except nouns) and nouns, and further subdivided the "service words" into
5 progressive levels of difficulty: pre-primer, primer, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade.
In general terms, the pre-primer and primer levels are words that children can try (and often do)
master while in preschool and kindergarten age groups, and the more advanced levels are usually
fully mastered in the first grades of school, but there are always exceptions, and the word
is generally useful throughout K-12 education.
What can be said for sure is that bingo provides an excellent and fun method for teachers and parents
to help children rehearse and master these important words, and thus
improve their reading skills.
