Play Memory Sight Words

Play Memory Sight Words (PM words for short) is a free sight program developed by teachers in Australian Schools that correlates directly to reading levels. The program is designed for the Foundation Year in Australian Schools.

The Advantages of the Play Memory Sight Words program

  • It is a program that allows students to quickly memorise high frequency words that they encounter during guided reading, take home reading and benchmark tests. While other sightword programs focus on high frequency words, the PM Words program focuses on high frequency words that children will encounter in the very early stages of reading.
  • The program and it's resources are free to use, photocopy and redistribute. We believe in helping all students no matter of their socioeconomic background! We only ask that you keep the website address on the resources.
  • A variety of different activities and games available allow students to constantly revise their sight words through play which build connections into their long term memory.
  • Children are only introduced to a small number of words at time and are able to build upon their prior knowledge when reading. Each colour set contains 9 words. These 9 can be broken down into 3 sets of 3 where appropriate.

Reading Correlation

This sight word program was created as other sight word lists available did not correlate to what words appeared in the levelled readers. As such, this word list was created and made available to everyone else for free. You are welcome to copy and redistrubite the sight word lists, resources, games and activities for non-commerical purposes.
