The purpose of this phenomenological bound case study was to explore the effect of acquiring sight words on reading fluency and comprehension skills for early literacy learners during a summer reading camp at one elementary campus in south Texas. Study findings indicated that through prescribed learning experiences with sight words that included the use of highly engaging games, the early literacy learners attending the summer reading camp acquired new sight words. Fluency and comprehension skills improved per the implementation of themed reading instructional activities including the use of authentic text and authentic materials with an emphasis with all activities on repetition or repeated reading. The prescribed reading activities and learning experiences at the summer reading camp resulted in positive feelings regarding reading.
