You might be wondering “What are these ‘popcorn words’ that Mrs. Gaston is sending home?”
 
  Popcorn words are basic sight words that are repeated often in books and print . We explain to the children that these words just "pop" up everywhere! Fluent readers are able to read these words on sight without taking time to try to sound out the words or use other clues to figure them out. Learning these words will help us to become fluent readers and writers. In the classroom we place our popcorn or sight words on the word wall to remind us that we need to be able to read these words when we see them.
