Word recognition is essential to being able to read. At Computer Kids, we take reading very seriously and make it a very important component of our curriculum. Ehri (1997) states that being able to read many sight words automatically by sight contributes dramatically to fluent reading and is the best way to unlock the meaning of any text. As children begin to develop a store of sight words, they find learning new sight words easier. As more sight words are acquired, a child’s confidence will grow.
