Sight Word Fluency Lists

These lesson materials can help students with sight word fluency and word recognition skills. With these materials, students practice reading sight word lists for 3 to 7 minutes several days per week. 

The lists begin with more frequently found words and words students commonly miss while reading. The lists progress to less frequently used words and academic words found in texts used in school. Every fifth list is a cumulative review list.
