This is list of sight words.  Your child should be able to recognize
them in less than a second.   These are words that good readers
instantly recognize without having to “figure them out.”  A good
reader really can’t afford the time to dwell on too many words, or he
may lose the speed and fluency necessary for determining the author’s
message.

Your child should also be able to spell each of these words when
writing.  Practice learning to read and write these words will
greatly benefit your child.
