Sight Words

Second Grade Sight Words 

The majority of these words were taken from Fountas and Pinnell sight word list.

These are sight words that your child is required to know by the end of second grade.  The students will be assessed on them periodically throughout the year. 

Your child should be able to read these words on sight. 

Please practice them at home until all the words are recognized. We will be learning about them through spelling units, reading vocabulary and also our class word wall.
