These high frequency words should be recognized instantly by young readers. These are helpful for adults learning English as a second language as well as for children. This app has words divided into five levels and then divided into groups of twenty-five, based on frequency of use and difficulty in a flash card setting. Bugs or suggestions?

I just do not see how sight reading is an effective learning technique.
Krista, Yes, encouraging children to memorize how words look almost always leads to developing a word guessing habit. In fact, many classrooms teach children to guess at words as a reading strategy.

It is frustrating. It is slower for a child to be able to read books when he is taught to sound words out as it takes time for a student to move from sounding words out to being able to read them on fluently. But when students learn to read by sounding words out, they have the skills to read a word they have never read it before.
Thank you for the work you do with children.

Poor kids. Marianda, You can hear the differences between the two sounds on our free Phonogram Sounds app which also works from a computer browser. When you click on the U phonogram, you will hear three sounds. The first sound is the short sound and is the sound U makes in the word under.
The second sound is the long sound and is the sound that U makes in the word uniform.
Why U makes one sound at the beginning of one of these words and a different one at the beginning of the other is because in under the U is in a closed syllable and in uniform is it in an open syllable. Our blog post on How to Teach Open and Closed Syllables explains what makes a syllable closed or open. Where do Leap words fit into AAS spelling program? I am worried they cant spell these words. However, in AAS 2 and above rule breakers are taught explicitly, reviewed, and practiced.
They will be taught. It discusses how All About Spelling teaches these tricky words. Just keep in mind that AAS covers all of these words in time, so you can wait until they are introduced in AAS before throwing the words in jail. Loved your post!!
Thank you!! Is learning sight words consider developmental?
I have a friend that considers a child should be able to blend in order to read them. I think is memorization can you please explain? Words like house and horse look almost identical. They both begin with ho and end with se, they are the same shape if you draw an outline around the word, they are the same length. A child who only knows how to read by sight will confuse words like this.
To be able to read fluently and smoothly, students have to be able to recognize thousands of words. It is very difficult to memorize that many. However, once readers have learned to sound words out so quickly and easily that it is second nature, knowing thousands of words is easy. By the way, this is what is going on with fluent adult readers. All About Reading does not encourage students to memorize words by sight.
Rather, we want our students to be able to sound words out as often as is necessary for them to be able to do it so quickly that it looks like memorization. Does this answer your question? Please let me know if you would like more information or have more questions. Hi, I love your program my girls have excel in their decoding of words with you superb AAS product. I have a question about decoding. I was told this by a teacher and I do believe so, can you help me? Edited copy. Children can learn sight words and decoding together, but many find that too much focus on sight words encourages children to guess at other words and not attempt to decode them.
Also, when children apply sounds from sight words to words they are trying to decode, they can make mistakes. Then they try to sound out a word like band and read it as bund. Very interesting information. This was a very interesting article. Thank you.

All About Spelling breaks every teaching down into its most basic steps and then teach the lessons in a logical order, carrying students from one concept or skill to the next. Each step builds on what the student has already mastered. Research has shown that when a child is taught through all three pathways at the same time, a method known as simultaneous multisensory instruction, he will learn significantly more than when taught only through his strongest pathway. Working with the letter tiles can make the difference between understanding or not understanding a concept.
The script is very clear, without excess verbiage. Children that struggle generally need lots of review in order to retain concepts. This way, you can concentrate on just the things that your child needs help with, with no time wasted on reviewing things that your child already knows.
Partway through Level 3, the Writing Station activity is introduced. In this exercise, students write sentences of their own that they make up using some of their spelling words. In this way students have begun to use words in a more real-world context through dictation and writing, to help them transition to longer writing assignments. All About Spelling has a one-year guarantee. I love this program and the less stressful way of teaching my child to read. She is learning how to decode the words and her growth is amazing! I never understood the point of sight words until using this program.

The philosophy behind this curriculum helped my daughter grow exponentially and lowered our stress level greatly! Brittany, Lowering stress is always a good thing! This post helped me understand the meaning of sight words. I was against teaching that style of reading, but now I see how some words are easier understood by just recognizing them instead of sounding out. I was very much against sight words until I started using your program. Now I know there is a place for them. I have homeschooled her strictly Abecka for 3 years now, and wonder if my teaching is why she is lacking.
Some children just need a different approach to learn, but once they have the different approach the same teacher has great success. Both All About Reading and All About Spelling are Orton-Gillingham based, which is a proven approach for helping students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. AAR and AAS break every teaching down into its most basic steps and then teach the lessons in a logical order, carrying students from one concept or skill to the next.
Children with learning struggles generally need lots of review in order to retain concepts. One of the things that Marie noticed when she was researching reading programs is that few programs have enough review built in for kids who struggle to gain fluency. AAR has fluency sheets or a story to be read with every lesson, so children can practice reading smoothly with expression and confidence.
I taught reading for many years before homeschooling. I learned some new things here today!
