From the Best-Selling learning to read series, Bob Books, comes Sight Words: First Grade
Sight words are common words that appear again and again in your children's reading material. Knowing these words "by sight" is essential for reading fluency. Bob Books Sight Words - First Grade gradually adds more complexity as your beginning reader acquires 30 new sight words. It is a great companion book to Bob Books Sight Words - Kindergarten.
Consistent short vowels in one syllable words of three, four or five letters, mean children can sound out (decode) the story.They learn three new sight words per book.
While words and stories in Sight Words First Grade are slightly longer and more complex than Sight WordsKindergarten, they are still suitable for a beginning reader.
Inside the box you'll find: - 10 easy-to-read, hilarious small books, 12 pages each. - Slightly longer and more complex stories. - All stories told in one syllable, three-, four- and five-letter words, plus sight words. - Consistent short vowels mean easy decoding in the rest of the story. - Three new sight words introduced in each book. - Context clues and illustrations give sight word hints. - 30 two-sided, sight words flash cards..
Great works well.

The Bob Books are a series of boxed sets designed to help develop skills at different levels and complexities. They are designed to grow with a child as their skills in reading improve. This is the second set we have given our oldest daughter and she loves them.
There are 10 books in this specific boxed set: Plums Little Bug Pretty The Sled What Is that? Come In The Old Truck Play Ball Dress Up Before and After
The tools combined in this box set are a real aide in helping a child grow and develop their reading skills. The focused repetitions between the flash cards and the same words being a big focus in the books is a well designed and planned tool. One of the things I like best... read more
Not Sure About Sight Word Sets
By Amy in Texas - September 7, 2012
I am using the Bob series to supplement my Kinder's phonics program. The books have just the right difficulty to challenge but not discourage. My Kinder LOVES them! My only challenge with books stems from my Kinder's ability to memorize everything very quickly. Plus the pictures might give too many context clues for us. Overall, we purchased first two sets and, once started, quickly purchased the remaining sets. Great product!
However, we have struggled with the Kinder and First Sight Word books. They contain enough "advanced" words that I feel we will not really be able to tackle the sight word sets until we have finished the reader book sets. The sight word sets do come with flash cards which is nice.
Helped My Son Catch Up!
By Danielle Lariviere - April 17, 2012
My son started off the first grade slightly behind in his reading. I knew he could do it, he just needed the right reading material and practice. Completely lost on where to start, I liked the what I saw with the Bob books and the reviews. Starting with book 1 from the first set, my son has read through the whole series, mastering each book, in about 6-7 months. I loved how each book built on the last one, it was so easy for me help him move forward. He thought the books were really silly which helped keep him interested. Some books he wanted to read over and over because he enjoyed them so much. Now he's at grage level and a much more confident reader. When he read the last book, we went back to the very first book so he could see how far he came and he was very proud of himself. I am too! I just wish there was another set for the next statge:0(
