DOLCH WORD LISTS
The Dolch Word Lists are lists of frequently used words found in beginning reading. Students are expected to know these words on sight rather than trying to sound them out. Students will be assessed on these words five times during first grade beginning with the preprimer list and ending with the second grade list.
To meet benchmark students need to know the following:
November: 70% of the preprimer list
January: 70% of the preprimer and primer list
March: 70% of the preprimer, primer and first grade list
June: 85% of the preprimer, primer and first grade list
