I teach Kindergarten and do not teach from a sight word list. Instead I teach them to decode. When we hit an irregular word like the or said or an r-controlled vowel, I tell them they haven't learned those rules yet and just tell them the word. So I do teach them but in context.
This is what I hope to move my team to doing, but for now I work with what I have to do...

We do one per week for the first half of the year or so. When I introduce the word we body spell it (different motions for tall, short, and long letters), say sentences with the word, and then do a quick worksheet where they find the word, write it twice, and then I have them try to write a sentence. I try to use the words as often as I can in our morning message.

My favorite activity is dictating sentences with the sight words. I give them a sentence starter and each student dictates a sentence. I write it out with their help. When everyone has done a sentence (over the course of a few days) I then cut them apart, give them to the student, and they have to recreate their sentence and then illustrate it. We make it into a class book.

We do 2/3 words every two weeks to go along with our old reading series. We got a new reading series this year (not cool, with covid, imo) so I may do it differently next year but right now, with so many new things going on (in person & virtual kids at the same time, covid protocols, etc) I'm sticking with what I know.

I teach two first grade intervention classes, four days per week.

In October, at the beginning of round one intervention, I pretest student individually on their kindergarten sight words. Then I make individual flash cards (using my computer) for each student on words they did not know.

As they learn these kindergarten words, I pretest them on the first grade sight word list, and again make individual flash cards. By the end of round two intervention, the expectation is that they will know all their kindergarten and first grade sight words.

My first graders receive two new sight words each day. They also review words each morning that they previously received. In their intervention bags, they have a plastic bag with their individual sight words that are part of their nightly intervention homework along with a black and white copy (Leveled Literacy Intervention) book and comprehension question list that parents use for nightly homework.

I count on repeated organic exposure for those irregular high frequency words.

What does your sight word schedule look like? How many sight words do you introduce per week and what activities do you do?
