Sorry for all the school posts but we've changed schools and the teaching methods deem very different and I need opinions. At the old school we did magic100 words, ,you learnt you're colour group and went up a colour no matter how long it took. It was your own pace. New school - new set of about 8 words each week. So what if you kid doesn't learn them within the week? We're onto a new bunch the following week. I'm not sure what system they use but its not magic100. How does your school do it?

So far (preppie) dd doesn't move on to the next group until she masters he first. We are two words off completing the first sheet.

Sounds like what we used to do OP.
We got given them on little cards. So we would practice them all every week. I would use them as flash cards, and then I would get the kids to make up sentences with the words as well.

At dd school they get a list and do it at their own pace. Once they can recognize the words well without sounding out, they hand in the list, teacher checks they know the words, then they get a new list.

In prep we got them on little flash cards. Started off with 5 at a time, and then after the first 50 it increased to 10 at a time. They were tested once a week and if they knew them then they moved on to the next list.
Now in grade 1 they have a booklet with all the sight words. All the ones they did in prep are in there and ticked off if they've completed them. So they pick up right where they left off. They have 10 words per list and are tested on a list whenever they feel they're ready. So you could theoretically learn a new list every day, or you could take a week per list or longer, it goes at the child's speed.
DS doesn't like just sitting and reading the list over and over again to learn it, so I write the words on my own flash cards and make games with them - sight word bingo, or hide and seek (hide the cards around the room, he finds them and then has to read the card).
