Sight words are so important in English. They give students some of the most common words and enable them to start to communicate. We have created these sets of sight words worksheets for use in homes and classrooms for free.
Many sight words are also high frequency / common words and although they do not follow, at least always follow, phonics or other English spelling rules they are still very important to learn. Especially during the formative years of English instruction.
