    Dolch Sight Words


    The Dolch Sight 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 are 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
