Sight words are words that children instantly recognize without having to decode them. These high frequency words have irregular spellings that need to be memorized. These words play a major role in not only reading but speaking as well. The easiest way is with sight word games that help to build the child’s confidence and fluency in reading. Teaching them with the help of games even make learning more fun and creates their interest as well..

Post signs on objects around the classroom so that children will learn to associate the object with the written word. Use flash cards by using markers and index cards to help the students learn the words. Use sight word and picture cards to build sentences. Create a picture dictionary that contains animals, objects, colors and label the words. Create puzzles on tag board. Develop fill in the blank game. Games and activities can make the learning fun and enjoyable for your child. sight words help them to learn and boost their morale. It makes them feel more confident and determined.

These games can help both the parents and the teachers in making the child become a good reader. Decoding each sight word while reading a sentence creates frustration in children and also makes the text boring to read. These games frees up a child’s energy to tackle more challenging words. They help children make sense of what they are reading by providing clues to the overall meaning of a sentence. There are many words in English language that cannot be discovered by a young reader using phonics hence these games are the best way to teach such words.

These games develop a better understanding and help the child connect prior knowledge of the word and its spelling. The process of merging the two is mediated by their knowledge of the alphabet. These are not mere games but also enhance their memory power.
