Handwriting is more of an art than a technical skill when you reference Easy Teacher Sight Words lessons.

Are there some words that you just seem to see more often than not when reading? You bet ya! There are roughly one hundred words that will be present in half of what we read. In the 1930s an educator names Edward William Dolch recognized this and realized that there are some words that reads should automatically know. He created a list of two hundred and twenty words and ninety-five nouns that are of high occurrence. He encouraged children to focus on these words to become better readers. In the 1980s this list got an update by Edward Fry. The list expanded to one thousand words. It is estimated that the Fry list is found in roughly ninety percent of what we read and write. Although the digital age seems to have made handwriting obsolete, reality is much different. Also referred to as penmanship, hand writing takes considerable practice to create a unique style that appeals to readers.
