We have sight words in kindergarten that kids need to know by the end of the year.
In Kindergarten we call them "Heart words." These are words a student should know by heart. I separate them by color so they can practice one set at a time.
The colors go in the following order: pink, purple, yellow, green, blue, orange. Becuase students have been doing so well with learning their heart words I added two more colors to learn. The new colors are rainbow and red.
