Chapter books for kindergarten

The new school year is in full swing, and kindergarten students are already immersed in beginning reading skills. Sight words are a big part of beginning reading skills. Children have already been introduced to a beginning list of sight words to remember during the first few days of kindergarten. Sight words are to be memorized in that they are not easily deciphered by knowing phonetic sounds. Kindergarten students are taught to read by a variety of techniques, and sight words are an important part of beginning reading.
