Super Site of the Month

The Dolch words are the 220 most frequently found words in books. It is necessary for these words to be sight words that students recognize without thinking. At this site you will find the Dolch words separated into nice lists. TIP: I use these lists with my students. In order for the student to move onto the next list in the series they must pass the each list with 100% accuracy before moving on.
