Below you will find a list of 100 sight words your first grader should be able to know upon sight by the end of the school year. 

 

Sight words are critical to reading not only because they are used so frequently, but also because many of them cannot easily be sounded out or illustrated. ... Because they are used so often it is important that readers be able to recognize these words on sight (hence the term “sight words”).

Here is a link to ideas for practicing sight words with your child!
