Site word & phonics easy ,

Learn to read EASY

My son uses this app and it's super easy & excellent quality. Learning to read with sight words and phonics, quick games and quiz to test understanding. The ability to move back or forward in the lesson as well as add additional users means all my younger kids will get to use this too. If they had this app for learning another language I would sign up, it's great for ESL (no matter the age) too.
Wishes for the app: ability to play site word or phonics games without being part of the lesson, that the glitch of user names disappearing would be fixed. (Pay attention to the lesson # your child is on you can move back to it)
