Sight Words Hangman is an application where your child learns the most frequently used English words without sounding the words out letter by letter.

The game is simple, utilizing touch screen operations, colorful and comical graphics to persuade your child to play and learn. Sight Words Hangman begins by ”Selecting a List”, and touching the word “Repeat” to listen to the word. The child hears and views the word then makes their selection by pressing on the word that they think is correct. If the child chooses the correct sight word, then they automatically advance to the next word. If the child guesses the incorrect word, a body part of the hangman shows up on the screen and then the child is given 5 more opportunities to guess the correct answer. If the child would like to hear the sight word again, they can press the “repeat” button to hear the word again and pick another answer. The child can see their score at the end of the game so they can try to improve their score the next time.

About SightWords as stated on…

Sight words are pronounced without decoding the word's spelling. Effectively, an alphabetic writing system is made into an ideographic writing system. Unfortunately, speakers of ideographic languages have to spend a much longer time learning to read because of the sheer volume of symbols they must memorize. A common first sight word is a child's given name. Beginning readers are at an advantage when they learn to read sight words that occur frequently in print such as those included on the Dolch and Fry word lists.

Pretty simple and boring

I down loaded this app for my daughter who is going to 1st grade and she's a newly turned 5 year old. Way too easy and pretty boring.

Not at all like hangman

The sound doesn’t work no matter what settings I adjust and I just see a list of words. No letters. I don’t get it. How is this hangman? There are no instructions that I can find. Only a complaint from another user about the sound under the help section.
