Dolch Sight Words

Published in his book “Problems in Reading” Edward William Dolch identified 220 words, commonly referred to as “service words” that were frequently used in children reading materials. Because these words typically cannot be “sounded out” memorization is one of the most effective ways for children to learn them to help improve their reading. SightWords.io provides you with this list of words broken out into several different categories so they can easily be utilized as needed.

With the skill of reading being crucial to a child’s educational growth and development mastering these 220 words that Dolch has compiled contribute to your child having a more productive life. Dolch’s list is comprised of adjectives, adverbs, conjunctions, prepositions and verbs and accounts for up to 75% of the words used in the English language.

SightWords.io provides resources to make it fun and engaging for your child to learn the Dolch sight words including easy to print flash cards, the words broken out into several categories and a mobile app that is accessible on multiple devices.
