    As stated on Mrs. Perkins' site, she  provides "220 of the most common words and 95 additional nouns in children's reading books, in alphabetical order. Dolch words, or sight words, provide an excellent base for reading at an early age. They are often called sight words because some of them can't be sounded out, and need to be learned by sight." She provides different ways in which you can practice your sight words. In addition, some PowerPoints have audio so that you can hear the words.    You have to download most files in order to use the information. It's a great site!.
