Meet the Dolch Words

Do you remember the old television show, “The Letter People?” The theme song started out inviting you to, “Come and meet the Letter People! Come and visit in the family! Words are made of Letter People, A, B, C, D! Follow Me!”

Today, children’s books are populated by many of the same 220 sight words (words that are hard to sound out or to illustrate.) These 220 words are also known as Dolch words. Once these words have been acquired, children can more easily navigate a variety of literature. Simply put, you are helping your child become a more confident and competent reader by teaching them the Dolch list words.

With summer drawing to a close, spending a few minutes each day going over a few of the Dolch list words, will prepare their minds, priming them, for the school year that is just around the corner!
