Intermediate Sight Words Free features multiple interactive activities to introduce and practice use of high frequency words critical for reading. High frequency words or sight words are the building blocks for children learning to read. This free version includes Level 1 and the first ten words. This full version includes 150 of the most common words found in reading materials for kindergarten and first grade age children. All words are pronounced clearly by a native English speaker.

Support for multiple users is now included. Users can be added or deleted by selecting 'manage users' in the Settings screen. Progress is maintained separately for each user. Students can easily switch to their profile by selecting the 'user' button on the main menu. For more information on managing users please visit our website. Up to 24 users are supported per device.

Activities in each level include:

Word Wheel - A quick introduction to each word then quiz to reinforce word recognition. Hints that reinforce knowledge because the first exposure might not make it stick.

Space Spelling - Jumbled letters need rearranged to spell the words. This activity has context-sensitive help so that even beginners will be able to learn spellings. Correctly spelled words are rewarded with rainbow rockets.

Jungle Bingo - Word bingo game includes context sensitive help and animated text to reinforce learning.

Reading Highway - Trucks drive through carrying words. Status bar displays a sparkling star for each correct answer.

Oceans of Word Search - Underwater themed word search with context-sensitive help and interactive sea creatures as rewards for found words.

Memory Menagerie - Animals flip to reveal the words. Correct matches rewarded with animals flapping off the screen.
