SIGHT READERS : Keywords with Peter and Jane


Sight words are the basis behind the whole-word approach to reading education. They are pronounced without decoding the word's spelling. 
 To know more about these words, you may read up on references from the Dolch's List or Fry's 1000 Instant Words. You may refer to the both lists of sight words at the links below.

(1) Dolch's List

The words are divided into sub-categories to cater to different levels. Click individual blue links to read them.

Peter and Jane books complement sight reading practice of the words in Dolch's and Fry's List of Sight words. I'm not sure about the rest of you but Budsy grew up reading Peter and Jane too.

Whilst searching for other early activity books for chubs, Budsy found a boxed set of the first 6 books in the Peter and Jane series.

A child can begin using these books without prior knowledge of phonics. Knowledge of sight words is important to complete a child's reading process. Budsy will share other sight readers next time. Chubs wanted a go at the 1a book from the Peter and Jane readers, so Budsy let him try. Budsy finds that chubs is making very good effort. He is not able to finish the whole book yet but, for just taking initiative to try, Budsy is already a very happy mother.
