Building Strong Readers: Teaching Kindergarten Sight Words and Early Literacy

Kindergarten sight words are essential building blocks for early literacy skills, helping children learn to read and write.

These essential words can be taught in various fun and engaging ways, such as through games, songs, and activities that help build kids’ confidence and reinforce their learning.

As a parent of a child currently in kindergarten, we are in the thick of learning sight words. Before giving birth, we decided that reading would be an intricate part of our children’s upbringing.

We asked for books and cloth diapers for our baby showers instead of toys, clothes, and free gift cards. Asking for books allowed us to build a library at home that included favorites from our family and friends.
