Learning sight words has never been this easy!
Many words don t follow basic decoding rules and are taught in pre-k and kindergarten classrooms as 'sight words', 'instant words', 'high frequency words' or 'star words'. A new reader finds sight words very frustrating until they are memorized. A good reader will be able to instantly recognize sight words without having to 'figure them out'. Preschool Prep Company makes learning sight words fun and easy. With 16 sight words the viewer will continue to build from the foundation created by Meet the Sight Words 1. The combination of the Meet the Sight Words 1 & 2 teach the top 20 Fry words, the top 20 Dolch words and the Houghton Mifflin kindergarten list. Preschool Prep Series DVDs have won over 25 national awards and are used in thousands of schools. You will be amazed at how easily your little one can learn sight words!

Teacher's Picks - Best for Learning Sight Words.
The Meet the Sight Words DVD series covers all the basic sight words through engaging video. This layered approach to introducing sight words is very effective, says our tester. The child first sees the word in black letters, then colors and sounds are introduced until the child sees a graphic representation of the word. The sensory clues really help children retain the words. --Scholastic Instructor Magazine
This DVD is an animated teaching tool, not a cartoon show. I'll liken it to freshly squeezed juice for a child vs. KoolAid! I am extremely picky about what my children view on any screen, and Meet the Sight Words passed with flying colors (no pun intended). --The Old Schoolhouse Magazine
