Sight words... Edit, added more.

My Ds is in 3rd grade. His teacher today gave him a list of sight words to practice. We came home, he read every single word with no problem at all. I'm confused as to why she felt he needed these sight words, when he read them perfectly. Guess tomorrow I call and find out. What do you think it is?


Edit- OK sorry forgot to add it was parent teacher conferences today and they are claiming he went backwards in reading, and needed to practice these words. But he read them just fine.

They probably went home with everyone to practice.

Everyone in the class gets the same list. They get harder as the year goes on.

I'd assume the whole class gets them?

Chances are EVERY PARENT was handed a sight word list. It's extremely common.

At parent teacher conferences there was bilk stuff that came home and then some child specific. I wouldn't think twice about the list.

I'm not worried just confused since he read them. When she handed them to me, she said he went backwards in reading and needed help with these words. But reading them at home, he had no issue.

If he can read them with no problem, then you need to figure out why he isn't reading them at school.
