How do you learn sight words?

Sight words should be learned gradually and geared to the individual’s learning rate (1-3 at a time). The words that have been previously “learned” should be reviewed daily to build retention. Sight words are best learned through repetition. Someone needs to read the word to the learner and listen as they attempt to “read” the word back. This can be done through modeling, paired reading, and any number of games (matching the word in print to what is being said, finding a word that means so and so, etc.) capitalizing on learning styles and modalities. Use gentle correction and praise.
