Practice reading and writing the 45 Reception High Frequency Words on your iPad!
High Frequency Words are the words that a child needs to be able to read by sight in order to increase his/her reading fluency. The child with practise will learn to read this bank of words without having to decode them.
The High Frequency Words occur frequently in the reading scheme books that the child will use at the start of their reading journey. Once learnt this will give a beginner reader access to 50% of a text. Immediate word recognition coupled with a good knowledge of basic phonics, will allow a child's reading skills to take off.
When a child can confidently read the High Frequency Words, practising writing them will then support his writing skills. These words will allow a child to begin writing simple sentences.

This app is built for reception/year1 children to help them learn the first 45 high frequency words. It allows students to listen, trace and write each word on their own.

Great for Reception kids!

This is a great app to practise recognising and writing the 45 Reception High Frequency words. Nice words of encouragements with kids voice for each time that your child attempt a word.

Not great

This is not a reading game as the word is spoken by the app as soon as it is shown. The word is displayed and the child should write over the top with his/her finger (in joined cursively). The game exclaims a compliment before the next word is shown, regardless of whether the child writes well, scribbles or leaves it blank. There is no skill required, no progress shown, no change or development (even in the order the words of presented), and no effort needed.
