The Dolch Sight Words list is the most commonly used set of sight words. Educator Dr. Edward William Dolch developed the list in the 1930s-40s by studying the most frequently occurring words in children’s books of that era. The list contains 220 “service words” plus 95 high-frequency nouns. These words comprise 80% of the words you would find in a typical children’s book and 50% of the words found in writing for adults. Once a child knows this list of words, it makes reading much easier, because the child can then focus his or her attention on the remaining words.

The Dolch words are commonly divided into groups by grade level, ranging from pre-kindergarten to third grade, with a separate list of nouns. There are a total of 315 Dolch Sight Words.

From 50-75% of all words used in school books, library books, newspapers, and magazines are in the Dolch Basic Sight Vocabulary of 220 words (preschool thru Grade 3).   The Dolch word list is made up of "service words" (pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and verbs) which cannot be learned through the use of pictures.

In this section I've included a series of flashcards that can be printed and used to reinforce learning, the complete list of preschool words (see table) and some activity ideas for using the flashcards.

Ideas for Using the Flashcards:

The flashcards can simply be held up, giving the child the opportunity to read each one.   But if you're looking for a more engaging activity, try combining the Dolch flashcards with the noun picture flashcards for a variety of activities (I've listed some suggestions here from simplest to hardest)



    • have an adult arrange the flashcards to form a sentence. 
    • Read the sentence with/to the child
    • Remove one of the dolch words from the sentence and put it back in the pile (you may want to make the pile smaller in the beginning to make the activity easier). 
    • Give the pile to the child and have them find the correct card to place back in the sentence.
    • Re-read the sentence.


    • have an adult arrange the flashcards to form a sentence, leaving one card out.
    • read the incomplete sentence with/to the child.
    • present between 2 and 5 cards to the child (one of them should make the sentence complete)
    • have the child chose which is the correct card
    • re-read the sentence with the card chosen.   Talk about whether it makes sense or not.
    • provide the child with all or part of the pile of flashcards
    • allow them to create their own sentences using the cards
    • read the sentences with them and talk about what they've created.
    • OPTIONAL:  Have them glue their completed sentence to the bottom of a piece of construction paper and draw a picture of their sentence on the top.  (author/illustrator of their own story).

The development of memory in children: exercises, games and methods

Memory is the process of preserving, analyzing and reproducing past experience. Thanks to the ability to remember information, a person can accumulate knowledge and evolve. Every day, many details are deposited in our minds, making it easier for us to make decisions and find a way out of the current situation.

Types of memory

There are several types of memory, depending on the period of storage of information, the object of storage, the form of storage of information in memory, etc.

By the period of storage

  1. Instantaneous memory - image memory. Perception of information by the senses, without any processing.
  2. Short term. Fast memorization of information for a short period of time. It can be a phone number, date, password, address.
  3. Long term. Deep memorization of important details that can influence later life. It is formed by selecting fragments from short-term memory and moving them by willpower to long-term memory.

According to the object of memorization

  1. Visual: retention and reproduction, if necessary, of visual symbols (memory for faces, etc.).
  2. Auditory: preservation of sound images and impressions.
  3. Tactile: Retention of sensations received when touching something.
  4. Emotional: preservation of sensations received during a shock, a surge of feelings.
  5. Gustatory: remembering taste sensations.
  6. Olfactory: the perception of smells.
  7. Motor, or motor: memorization, storage and reproduction of various movements.

According to the form of information storage in memory

  1. Figurative: the brain has the ability to collect fragments of sensory impressions and create images based on them, giving a reference to the necessary information.
  2. Verbal-logical: memorization and reproduction of thoughts in the process of reflection, reflection, reading books, etc.

According to the participation of the will in memory processes

  1. Free: with effort and the formation of a specific goal. For example, when preparing for an exam.
  2. Involuntary: when information is deposited in the head automatically.

By the participation of thinking in memory processes

  1. Mechanical: thorough memorization of information without one's own associations and without recourse to personal experience.
  2. Logical: the main thing is the essence of what you want to remember, without cramming.
  3. Associative: using personal experiences to connect with new experiences.

Briefly, the information above can be presented in the form of a table.

Criteria Memory types

  2. Logical (memorization by meaning)
  3. Associative (use of past experience)

Features of the memory of preschoolers

The development of memory in preschool children occurs involuntarily. As a rule, children do not set themselves the goal of remembering something.

Schoolchildren's memory is already sufficiently developed to build logical chains, analyze information and draw conclusions.

Perception of information directly depends on the child's age:

0-2 years. In the first year of life, the development of motor memory occurs: the child actively memorizes gestures, movements and tries to repeat them. From 1 to 2 years, the central nervous system develops, the amount of memorized information increases;

2-4 years. During this period, the development of mechanical memory occurs. After two years, the child begins to memorize more words, build logical chains;

5-6 years old. During this period, predominantly involuntary memory is involved: the child can already start from his own impressions and personal experience. Best of all, he remembers the information that interested him;

6-12 years old. During this period, long-term memory improves significantly. Children of primary school age are capable of arbitrary memorization and are ready to make the necessary efforts to remember what they are given. However, information that is more interesting to them is still absorbed faster.

Ways to develop memory in children

The best way to develop memory is special exercises that can be presented to a child in the form of an exciting game. Depending on the information to be memorized, such exercises are usually divided into several types:

  • For the development of visual memory.
  • For the development of motor and tactile memory.
  • For the development of auditory memory.
  • On the development of emotional memory.
  • On the development of verbal-logical memory.
  • On the development of figurative memory.
  • On the development of associative memory.
  • For the development of logical memory.

It is important to remember that the child's age plays a major role in the exercise. Babies have very little attention. Gradually, the brain grows, and the amount of children's memory increases. Older preschool children can memorize information that is useful to them well, but motivation is often needed to improve the result.

To train arbitrary memory, you can ask the child every day about what happened today, ask him to make a story from pictures, etc.

It is better to try to avoid thoughtless memorization, cramming. The memorization process can be simplified by saying the necessary information, drawing pictures on the topic, etc.

Particular attention should be paid to repetition of what has been covered: in order for information to be fixed in long-term memory, it is necessary to return to it during the day. Recommendation for parents: in the morning you can read a poem with your child, in the evening - repeat, in a day - return to what you read.

Also, one should not forget about rest: the child needs to take breaks, this will increase susceptibility, and then it will be possible to return to classes with renewed vigor.

Games and exercises for the development of memory

By doing simple exercises in a playful way every day, you can achieve good results. Below are examples of games selected for the development of each type of memory.

For the development of visual memory

  1. "Which toy is missing?". Place a few toys in front of the child, then ask him to turn away, remove one or two and ask what has changed.
  2. "What's the difference?". Finding the difference between two pictures is very useful not only for the development of memory, but also for enhancing attentiveness.
  3. "Describe a friend." This is a game for a group of kids. The kids are asked to look carefully at the neighbor, remember what he looks like, what he is wearing, and then turn away and tell about his appearance.

For the development of motor and tactile memory

  1. “Restore the sequence”. 5-6 pieces of fabric are laid out on the table. A blindfolded child is offered to feel them. Then the pieces of tissue are mixed and the child is offered to lay them out on the table in the order in which they were originally.
  2. "Repeat the movements." This game can be played with one child or with a group. Children should be shown dance moves, moving from simple to complex, and asked to repeat.
  3. "Stop on time!". Before starting the game, you need to agree with the child or with the group which movement is prohibited (for example, clapping your hands). The game consists in repeating movements after the leader. When the host makes a prohibited move, everyone must stop. Anyone who does not react in time is out of the game.

For the development of auditory memory

  1. "Repeat the melody". This game requires a piano or a toy synthesizer. You can invite the baby to turn away and play him 3-4 notes, and then ask him to repeat, finding them on the keyboard and playing them in the desired sequence.
  2. "Find the extra". You need to read a few unrelated words to the baby - clearly, making small pauses (for example, an apple, a coat, a bed, etc.). Then ask him to repeat the words that he remembered. Read the same words again, but add a couple of new ones to the list. Ask the child what words were not spoken the first time.
  3. Guess the cartoon. The exercise consists in the child's attempt to guess which song from which cartoon he is now hearing. You can also ask the kid to retell the plot of this cartoon.

For the development of emotional memory

  1. "Merry-sad". The kid needs to show cards with images of lollipops, balloons, a magnificent cake - everything that can cause positive emotions. And images that will evoke negative feelings - a broken cup, gray clouds covering the sun, a sick person with a thermometer under his arm. Showing each card in turn, you need to ask the baby to say what he feels when he looks at the picture. What emotions does the drawing evoke in him? The main task is to involve the child in the process of perception, in which the emotional factor is consciously included.
  2. "Choose an emotion." For this game, you will need cards with the image of emotions - joy, sadness, anger, etc. The kid must choose a card, and then try to talk about which emotion he chose and why. For example: “Today I am angry because…”.
  3. Guess by voice. Another form of the game is guessing emotions by voice. You can say simple phrases, for example: “This morning I ate porridge again.” Try to convey with your voice the emotion that you are experiencing, and let the child try to guess what kind of emotion it is.

For the development of verbal-logical memory

  1. "Name the second word." For the game, you need to prepare 10 pairs of words related in meaning. For example: mouse-cheese, winter-sled. Read all pairs of words to the child, slowly, giving time to remember. Then explain that the main task is to remember and name the second word after the first one in the pair is named.
  2. "Link words that are close in meaning." In this game, the task is the opposite: you need to prepare pairs of words in such a way that they are not related in meaning, but at the same time, among other pairs, there must be a word that can be combined with the first named. Example: the original version is an apple-sea. Another pair of words: pear-boat. Apples and pears can be eaten, and a boat can sail on the sea.
  3. "The third one is superfluous!". For the game, you need to prepare several chains of three words. In each of the chains, two words must be related in meaning, but the third must not. The task of the child will be to determine which word is superfluous in the semantic chain.

For the development of figurative memory

  1. “Describe the object”. You need to choose some object - for example, a toy, or a car if you are on a walk - and invite the child to remember as many distinguishing features as possible. The signs must be named in order. The one who fails to name the sign when it's his turn loses.
  2. Guess the hero. Here the goal is to remember the hero of a cartoon or book, whom the child knows for sure, naming him the distinguishing features of this character.
  3. Remember the details. The child is shown a collage of several drawings. For example, it can be cartoon characters. Then the collage is removed, and the child is asked to name everything that he was able to see and remember.

For the development of associative memory

  1. Think of an association. You need to read a short poem to the child, and then invite him to draw a picture for each phrase. According to these pictures, the child will have to try to repeat the poem. This exercise is a good training not only for associative thinking, but also for logic.
  2. "Memorize the word to the sign-symbol". The child is shown several symbols depicted on separate cards. Showing each symbol, the adult calls the word. Next, the child should be asked to remember which word belonged to which symbol, showing him the cards in random order.
  3. "I know five...". The meaning of the game is to repeat the names of something or names while hitting the ball. For example, “I know five names of girls: Masha - one, Dasha - two ...”, etc.

For the development of logical memory

  1. "I'm going to the sea!". Several people can participate in the game, or you can play together with a child. The first player begins with the words “I will go to the sea and take with me ...” - and says what he will take (one item). The second one continues the started chain, mentioning the subject that has already been named, and adding his own. And so on until someone fails.
  2. "Continue the semantic series." An adult calls a word - for example, "school". The child must continue the semantic series (for example, "children", "teacher", "book", etc.).
  3. "Finish the sentence." The adult starts the sentence, and the child must complete it so that everything matches in meaning. For example: “The car cannot go further because it has ... (engine broken).”

General recommendations for the development of memory in preschoolers

Games and exercises certainly help to develop a child's memory. However, a developed memory is not only daily hard work. We should not forget about the simplest things, on which the result also depends:

  • about proper nutrition;
  • about full, healthy sleep;
  • about walking;
  • on compliance with the daily routine;
  • about physical activity.

All these points are extremely important for increasing concentration in class and stimulating mental activity.


The child's memory is constantly being transformed and improved: at first it is a mechanical memorization, which over time becomes more and more conscious. To speed up and improve results, you can use the games above as exercises that contribute to the maximum disclosure of abilities.


In the children's centers and kindergartens "Baby Club" a child of preschool age in a playful way learns the world around him, along the way developing skills that will be useful to him in later life. Here they will not only prepare your child for school, but also teach him to think freely, feel confident in any environment, give advice in which direction it is better for him to develop further. The safest investment is an investment in education.

List of books to read in 2-3 years - Best books for children 2-3 years old - Kids Russian Books

At the age of 2-3, a child already perceives books not just as interesting objects, he gradually begins to realize the meaning of the stories described, understand the plot, express his opinion about what he heard and saw. It's time to start more serious and meaningful reading!

How to read?

  • Turn reading into a pleasant ritual for your baby. For example, do it before bed, after breakfast, or before nap. The environment plays a big role - beautiful pillows, a soft blanket, favorite toys, a beautiful lamp create a feeling of comfort, safety, tranquility and enhance the pleasant reading experience.
  • Read the same work many times if the child asks for it. Such a request indicates that this particular book resonated in the soul of the baby. Use repeated reading to develop imagination and creativity - ask your child to continue a sentence or come up with their own ending to a familiar fairy tale.
  • Do not be afraid to take on texts with words that you think are unfamiliar to the child. Children understand the meaning of many words in fairy tales and poems intuitively, from the context. The more new words are found in the text, the more intensively the child's vocabulary will expand.

What to read?

  • Kind and instructive folk tales
  • Author's tales of the classics of children's literature
  • Poems and fairy tales in verse
  • Poetic riddles
  • Stories about nature and animals

Which books to choose?

  • Editions with simple, well-executed illustrations that match the text on each page.
  • Works with concise and meaningful text, a limited number of characters and a simple storyline.
  • Timeless books. Focus on your own memories, think about what works you remember from childhood.
  • Durable and not too expensive books for you - children at 2-3 years old do not yet realize how easy it is to damage a book.
