Where Did Sight Word 60 Come From?
What Is Sight Word 60?
The premise of Sight Word 60 is that in the course of a school week, 5 days, students get over 60 exposures to each sight word and that happens in just a few minutes each day. No long lessons. A few high-impact, engaging minutes to teach sight words.
Brain research says we need 21 exposures to learn something and move it into long-term storage and be able to recall the information. So, why not triple that and get 60 or more exposures?!
Sight Word 60 works with any sight word list. Dolch. Fry. And if your district is like mine, we have our own list that changes frequently (and by frequently it depends on who you ask because when you ask different people you get a different list…but that’s beside the point…). My district requires our kindergarten students to master 100 words.
