Sight Words
We need a few more sight words that aren't part of the -an family.

  • Recognize them by sight for now, without sounding the words out.
  • These are some words we use all the time.
  • We'll learn their families later!
  • Sight words will be printed in gray at first when they are used.

The first new sight word is almost a member of the -an family.  It has an added 'd' at the end:

and

This is pronounced /ănd/, and we use it all the time to put things together like "you and me" or like "dogs and cats."

The next word is used with all sorts of words:

the

We use it in "the can" or "the pan."

Make sure you see the difference between this word and a similar word we had in the last lesson:

that

Can you point out the difference?  You have to watch the letters so you know which word you are reading!

The next word 'to' tells you where something is going:

to

Like, "I'm going to the store."
