This action research paper focused on the question “how does effective sight word instruction impact students’ reading abilities?” Effective sight word instruction will improve a student’s overall reading abilities. Data was collected through daily observation of students and recorded notes, formal and informal interviews, and student work samples. After analyzing the data, three major themes were found: sight word instruction improved students’ overall reading abilities, sight word instruction improved students’ confidence in reading, and sight word instruction alone is not beneficial without other literacy instruction. The implications of this study suggest that all elementary teachers need to provide students with a literacy rich environment, sight word instruction, and daily practice through the use of literacy centers and activities.
