What if you only had to teach 20 sight words from the Dolch list? Guess what? You can–because the other 200 words are completely decodable.

  1. I remember teaching the Dolch list years ago and either saying “actually, you can sound this one out”, or “this one you need to memorize”.

  2. Great resource that you found here to illustrate the Dolch word list and the decodability of the words. I wonder if they are still the same ‘most used’ words shred/read/tested in Ontario schools today?
