So Simple — It’s Word Ownership. It Builds Fluency. And It’s Fun!
The So Simple Sight Words program has been used in homes and at schools in 27 different states since 2004. Now you can access this simple and life-changing program from ANYWHERE.
Let's face it. Sight words can often be a challenge for students to learn and retain, and for teachers to present in a memorable and approachable way. Helping learners who have only been on this earth for 60 to 84 months is a CHALLENGE. As a first-grade teacher at a Title I school district in an ELD classroom, I lived that challenge and I know that thousands of teachers across the country struggle with this every day.
That’s why I created So Simple Sight Words.
I found that combining sight words with cheers, melodies, and whole brain movements in 16 beats or less makes a huge difference in word retrieval. While developing So Simple, I began to see where the “bumps in the road” were and worked to resolve these issues using skills all my students had: they could move, make noise, sing, and have fun! Noting how easily they remembered the 100+ songs and motions, 20+ dances, and sign language skills they learned through the school year, it was an easy transition to combine these innate abilities with reading and writing to create a lower-anxiety learning environment. Students responded to the music or motion cues I would give them if a word didn’t come immediately to them whether in reading or spelling.
And that’s what makes So Simple so special! It’s word ownership. It builds fluency. And it’s fun!
So Simple Helped Raise Reading Scores
For School Districts!
Take a look at these results after the first year of using my program at my school site, Casa de Oro Elementary.
After the first formal year using the program (after filming it and writing the manuals) and the students were tested the next year in second grade, our school’s second-grade reading scores rose by 27 points; the highest growth in our school district! The entire state’s growth was 7 points!GET INSTANT ACCESS
You no longer had to find creative, time-saving, memorable ways to achieve sight word mastery in your classroom? If the lesson plans were created for you and easily worked in your daily routine. If students not only could retrieve words confidently, but actually had fun while doing it!
Well that’s exactly what So Simple does! And here’s an easy lesson plan from my Volume 1 Teacher's Manual that you can try in your classroom.
I’m Patty So, a veteran teacher of 33 years with 29 of these years in a Title I first grade ELD classroom.
As I speak Spanish, I was the designated teacher for students developing the English language as well as ALL first graders still developing their language skills.
I’ve found that being able to recognize words on a page prior to reading it in its entirety creates an “I can!” mindset that allows for greater fluency and comprehension. It allows students to write more clearly and in a universal way that can be read by all—not just the teacher or parent. Reading and writing scores increased at our school site as a result of using this program in the primary grades.
So Simple began as a collection of 25 “cheers” in 2002 with my class and turned into 90 throughout the years, along with hosting up to 90 children in my classroom every morning to sing, dance, and cheer! Reading and writing scores increased at our school site as a result of using this program in the primary grades. I hope the children you instruct with this program have as much fun and success with it as mine did over the years!
The COMPLETE SO SIMPLE SIGHT WORDS SYSTEM will:
Give Your Students An “I Can” Attitude Toward Reading
Take the challenge out of Sight Word learning
Provide whole brain activities to support all learners
Lower student stress levels
During my 25 years in education, I have not found a program more effective in teaching sight words than So Simple Sight Words. When I taught first grade in the traditional classroom, I taught the cheers to the entire first grade each morning before class. Now as a charter school teacher, I recommend the program to all my homeschool families. So Simple Sight Words is the perfect program for any type of learner—visual, audio, or kinesthetic. I promise you won't be disappointed!"

"I have been a believer in So Simple for almost 2 decades. I started using the program as a new teacher in a low-income school where many of my first graders were far below where they should be. After using the program and having so much fun along the way, my students far surpassed the students next door. I loved this program so much that years later, I used it with my own children as well."
- Emily Scheitlin, Instruction and Data Support Teacher
"I LOVE using So Simple Sight Word cheers in my kindergarten classroom! They are all so fun and catchy and really make it simple for students to remember their sight words. If a child is reading or writing and gets stuck on a sight word, all that I need to do is start humming the tune and the child instantly knows the word! I would highly recommend using So Simple Sight Words to any and all primary grade teachers. Thanks for all of your work on making sight words fun and easy, Patty!"
