Starting in October... Each week, your child will get 6 new words to practice as part of their nightly homework.
Reading and writing word cards every day will make a difference.
Your child should be reading and writing their word card words each day, in order for the words to become automatic. Most of the 100 high frequency words your child needs to master by the end of first grade are not words that can be sounded out. They need to be recognized by sight, hence the term, "Sight Words".
