A vast number of children have trouble just recognizing high-frequency words. The reason this is a problem is because sight words are a high percentage of the words children encounter in reading. The design of our SnapWords® emphasizes comprehension, correct usage, and word recognition.
It works so well to pre-teach specific sight words and sound spellings using a big book. Rather than jumping right in and reading the story with them, pre-teach and give them the lay of the land ahead of time. Doing this will help the focus concepts jump off the page and reading the story will be more successful.
Go through all the SnapWords®, pointing out word chunks or sound spellings so that when they come to a more complicated word, you can show how the larger word has pieces that are similar to much smaller words they already know. The brain loves making connections!
Does it seem like your child just can’t learn sight words? Does he struggle with reading? You CAN help your child learn sight words. We will provide you with proven resources to help your child learn easily and in a way that makes sense for him - which means you will see results right away.
