SightWords.com: A Free Online Reading Curriculum

Do you have or know a child who is learning to read in English? If so, do you know about the online program Sight Words?

It is a free educational resource for teaching children to read and the site has just introduced a great new curriculum, sponsored by the Georgia Preschool Association, for teaching Phonemic Awareness (also called Pre-Phonics) to children. Their site is packed with games, activities, and tools to help parents and educators prepare children for learning to read.

Their free and printable materials are designed to promote learning in the classroom and also at home. The site's features include:

• A Curriculum covering the full range of Phonological and Phonemic Awareness
• Classroom-tested Lessons based on the latest research, complete with “how-to” videos
• Printable picture cards, word lists, and game boards
Teaching Tips for tailoring games to the specific needs of your students

Each sight words session is approximately 30 minutes and is divided into two components:
What I love about this site is that the curriculum includes instructional videos for parents/educators to help them understand the concepts and how to play the games. Take a look:

Parents! Take advantage of these free resources whenever you can. They are there to help you!
