Q. What are Dolch Words?
The Dolch Word List is a list of frequently used words compiled by Edward William Dolch, PhD. The list was prepared in 1936. The list was originally published in his book: Problems in Reading in 1948.

Dolch compiled the list based on children’s books of his era. The list contains 220 "service words" that have to be easily recognized in order to achieve reading fluency in English. The compilation excludes nouns, which comprises of a separate 95-word list (also included in the app).

Q. What are Sight Words?
Many of the 220 Dolch words can’t be “sounded out” using common sound-to-letter implicit phonics patterns and have to be learned by sight; hence the alternative term, “sight word." Although the list is divided into grades, for native English speakers, all the words in the Dolch Word List should be mastered by the end of 1st grade.
