Today’s shout out encourages those kids who are making baby steps and those who are finishing their grade level words. Sight words are a major focus in grades K-2 and with good reason!
“Knowing a few words in a new book provides confidence for an early reader. If a child sees a few words in a new book that he/she is certain of, the task of reading seems easier.
