    The first phase of sight word development consists of the pre-alphabetic phase. Ehri (1995) stated that during this phase, "beginners remember how to read words by forming connections between selected visual attributes of words and their pronunciations or meanings and storing these associations in memory" (p. 118). Children at this phase have not advanced any alphabet knowledge. Instead, children can read sight words by memorizing the visual signals around or in the word (Gaskin, Ehri, Cress,…
