This is the best sight words app available. Your child will gain reading speed and proficiency by memorizing over 250 words.
Sight words don’t follow the standard rules of phonics or the six syllable types. Sight words, often also called high frequency sight words, are commonly used words that young children are encouraged to memorize as a whole by sight, so that they can automatically recognize these words.
Sight words account for a large percentage (up to 75%) of the words used in beginning children's print materials. The advantage for children being able to recognize sight words automatically is that a beginning reader will be able to identify the majority of words in a beginning text before they even attempt to read it; therefore, allowing the child to concentrate on meaning and comprehension as they read without having to stop and decode every single word. Advocates of whole-word instruction believe that being able to recognize a large number of sight words gives students a better start to learning to read.
Ratings and Reviews
I really do love the idea of teaching children via sight words. I feel like kids could pick this up super quick and start learning immediately.
Also, it looks like it will do a great job at protecting my child’s privacy!
Thanks Shane! Looking forward to the next update! (Please add more levels!)
Where has this app been?!
This app actually listens to my kids read the word and then checks it. My kids think this is super fun. I would like to be able to compare there scores.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
