  Sight reading - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sight reading is the reading and performing of a work—typically, a piece of music, but sometimes also linguistic texts like drama—without having seen it before.
An experiment on sight reading using an eye tracker indicates that highly skilled musicians tend to look ahead further in the music, storing and processing the notes until they are played; this is referred to as the eye–hand span.
Sight reading also depends on familiarity with the musical idiom being performed; this permits the reader to recognize and process frequently occurring patterns of notes as a single unit, rather than individual notes, thus achieving greater efficiency.

 Sight reading
Sight reading is considered a useful and important skill for musicians.
In some circumstances, such as examinations, the ability of a student to sight read is assessed by presenting the student with a short piece of music, giving the student an allotted time to examine the music and prepare to play the music, then testing the student on the proficiency of how the student plays.
Errors in sight reading tend to occur in places where the music contains unexpected or unusual sequences; these defeat the strategy of "reading by expectation" that sight readers usually employ.

 Phonics or Sight Words? - Reading
Reading sight words involves teaching the automatic recognition of words without the need to analyze the letters or sounds of a word.
Sight reading often employs using words a reader already knows to help them 'guess' at words they don't recognize.

 Reading by Sight - SEDL Reading Resources
One important goal then in teaching children to read is to encourage them to abandon their natural tendency to memorize words as wholes, or to memorize salient features of words, and instead to learn to break words apart, examine the letters and chunks within the words, and decode them.
Children were able to read those texts, but usually had difficulty reading more authentic text which was not primarily composed of sight words.
Whereas a sight word once universally referred to a word which the child had memorized as a whole (without learning to decode it), now some have redefined the term to mean something different.

 Reading with TLC
Unfortunately, many of the sight words in our language happen to be phonetically irregular (they do not follow the rules of phonics).
Research has shown that students are better able to build orthographic images of printed sight words for later recall during reading and spelling if they have an understanding of the phonetic base of the words.
If one read the word phonetically, it would sound like the word ”comb.” On the flash card for this word is a picture of someone beckoning, “Come I want to comb your hair.” By initially reading “comb,” the student’s memory is jogged, and the word “come” is quickly elicited.

This enables the child to view reading as pleasurable, and then later adding the phonics to build the reading skill.
