• 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
