A Beka 1st Grade Sight Words Flashcards

I appreciate that A Beka strictly calls words “sight words” only when they don’t follow usual phonetic rules. I’ve seen many “sight words” lists that include words that can be sounded out, such as “did,” “on,” or “is.” Here are flashcards I made to use along with A Beka’s 1st grade readers for their sight words. Contact me if you need a different format. I also have them in A4, the size of paper over here. Hope this helps someone!

    I am new with A Beka this year having come from public school. Is this all of the sight words in the whole 1st grade series?

      I believe so. I may have left one or two off. ABeka is a phonics-based program, so they’re going to be totally different (and much better!) than the method for learning how to read in the public school. In a phonics program, the child learns to decode most words, so they can read quickly if they are not challenged with a learning disorder. Phonics programs also demystify much of English spelling. There are many good programs for phonics, and I’d encourage you to look into any of them over a look-say, or sight word heavy, reading curriculum. I love ABeka phonics! Forgive me if I talked down to you and you already knew all of this.
