The Dolch sight word list (also called "High Frequency" words) contains 220 "service words" that have to be easily recognized in order to achieve reading fluency in the English language. There are five groups of words: Pre-primer, Primer, Grade 1, Grade 2, Grade 3. Sight word acquisition is a critical building block for any child's ability to read. For example, once he or she can read all of the words on Dolchs lists, they will have access to 75% of what is printed in almost any piece of childrens literature. The more one-on-one time a child has learning and practicing sight words with an adult, the greater his chances to integrating them into his long-term memory.
