Basic Sight Words in English

Basic Sight Words in English are the ones that might not be easily sounded out but are needed to be recognized on sight. These are the commonly used high-frequency words that you might encounter very often in reading and writing.

The most commonly used set of sight words is sometimes referred to as Dolch Sight Words because it was developed by an Educator, Dr. Edward William Dolch in the 1930s-40s by studying the most commonly used/occurring words in children’s books of that era. It was said that reading can become much easier once a child knows this list of words.

Knowing these Basic Sight Words in English can give a beginning reader about half of the words they need in reading. Parents or teachers can assist them through different visual reading materials such as flashcards, tarpapel, or printed words list. Materials can be distributed to each learner to help them familiarize these words.
