Some information about sight words methodology. According to Wikipedia.org:

A sight word is any word that is known by a reader automatically. Sight words are the basis behind the whole-word approach to reading. Sight words and the whole-word approach to reading are a significant teaching technique considering 65% of the population identify themselves as visual learners. Small children are also predominantly visual learners and can therefore learn to read more effectively using sight words and the whole-word approach. Scientific studies have also shown that children with learning difficulties such as Dyslexia, Autism or Down syndrome are also visual learners, and therefore also read words as pictures.
