Great till list 37

My son really enjoyed this app but once he got to list 37 the list/app went crazy and couldn’t move forward. I paid for this app and hope this is fixed or reimbursed.

Great way to teach/reinforce sight words

As a retired first grade teacher using it now to help a struggling first grader distantly it’s a great app.
My favorite feature is using the word in context in natural interesting language. So much more effective than just flashing a word.
If I were still teaching it would be on my recommended list for parents besides being used in the classroom.

It’s okay

I like this app it really is helping out for my little one that is about to enter into kindergarten, it’s fun to sit and spell the words with him and he picks them out. But the only thing I don’t like is it says that it’s free but you’re not able to get pass the first four levels, after the first four you have to pay to continue. Feel like it should have said that in the description area or make you pay before you get the app. Really think they should do something about that.
