I think your approach is probably the best I have seen. When I first started using sight word lists, I divided them into 2 columns, one for easily decodable words, and the other for words that required more expertise on the part of the teacher. I based my work on the fact that English is over 94% phonetic, so nearly all English words can be sounded out if necessary. I have been teaching and tutoring my method for over 50 years, as it makes sense, even more so with American English, which is far more phonetic than ours. I am a retired Principal from Australia. I only teach rules if I give reasons for them, which I know. and students from 6 to 60+, can understand. Thank you.
