It is quite important to teach sight words early to kids even though it could is a time consuming process to start with. The first grade sight words are tough because they cannot be taught through pictures. Words like soon, away, is and if could be tough to explain to kids which is why various games and flashcards have been designed to make it easier. These words are important considering that they are frequently used in written texts and spoken language.

Games are now being designed though to make learning the Dolch list a fun activity. Although it could take considerable practice and repetition considering that phonetic, analysis is hard on these words. The problem with these words is that the spelling deviates considerably from the principles that guard alphabets making it tough to understand how these words are spelt or read when you hear them from another person. Out of the 220 words present in the Dolch list, 100 are extremely commonly used and are not that easy when it comes to spelling them.

Most of these words are taught through games like puzzles, space games and sentence builders to make identification of these words an involuntary step. This helps children to pick the basic skills that they would need to pick reading and continue education. Understanding of these first grade sight words will help children with their education as well as confidence especially when the words in the list can be taught in the early grades. In some cases, a wide variety of spelling games and activities are conducted to teach children the words in the Dolch sight words list and give them impressive fluency in the sight words. There are numerous techniques as well to teach the words to first grade students.
