I think sight words are important, however, I don't think every child HAS to learn them inorder to learn the english language.

I think that sight words are essential to the english language after phonetics has been appropriately learned.

Yes. Some everyday words cannot be sounded out, and many words contain sight words within them. I believe knowing some words on sights helps kids read faster and improves confidence.

ya ..they will help the child in reading as kindergarten kids can grasp a lot by sight seeing, which remains in their dormant memory and later helpful to them when they revive wat they learnt as a child. Sight words are helpful as basic for reading.
