Sight Words

Sight Words—we call them “Power Words”—are high-frequency, low-meaning words, most of which cannot be sounded out and thus must be memorized by sight (for example, the, of, these, are, here and is). Our 1 Green (1G) collections use only the first 60 Power Words that make up more than one-third of the words used in English text. Our 2 Green (2G) collections use only the first 120 Power Words that make up more than 50 percent of the words used in English text. Once mastered, these words provide “islands of certainty” from which the emergent reader can navigate the unknown with confidence.
