Hopefully that makes starting site words just a little less stressful. Even though you may choose to teach with phonics later, or are planning to send your children to a traditional school and are not sure what reading methods they will use, site words are still helpful to all children. Learning to recognize a large number of words helps children feel confident when reading.
