Dolch Sight Words

One of our goals for Isaac this year is for him to learn all 315 Dolch sight words, including the nouns. Listed below are said words, presented in alphabetical order. We've purposely jumbled the levels (pre-primer, primer, first, second, third) because we are fairly sure that he already knows a bunch of them.

We're starting with a pre-test - all the words on homemade flash cards, presented 25 per day, to check off those he already knows. After that, we'll determine how many we need to drill this year. Should be fun, if we can hold his attention.

UPDATE - Yeah, so the flash cards aren't really working as I'd hoped, and frankly putting everything into PowerPoint is too tedious. Isaac's been wanting a file folder game with trains, so Tiffany has started one with the Dolch nouns. Preliminary results are positive!
