A child can recognize very common words without having to pronounce them. These types of words are referred to as sight words. The benefits that children reap from recognizing these words with just a glance are amazing, as it helps them become faster and more confident readers.
It’s important to note that many high-frequency words are not spelled the way they sound, which can make them difficult to read and spell. In school, children are expected to be able to recognize sight words easily, as these words are extremely common. Words like ‘the,’ ‘it,’ and ‘and’ are encountered so frequently that readers no longer need to try to sound them out, as they can recognize them by sight.
