Welcome to Sight Words, a fun-filled adventure where children can learn to recognize, read, and write up to 320 sight words!
The beloved game of Hide-and-Seek is the central point of the app because it symbolically explores the cognitive skills necessary to remember sight words such as: visual attention, the morphology of the forest setting (i.e. the letters in a word), active listening, and of course visual memorization.
Developed with the The English Common Core State Standards in mind, this app will ensure that children have increased exposure to high frequency words that appear in text. These interactions will enable them to acquire the words into their long term memory. Our list was chosen based on Dolch’s and Fry’s compilations which account for over 50% of words that appear in printed text.
Recommended Ages 3-8

Not for kids under 5
Speaking as a master level teacher ECE: Sight words are not developmentally appropriate for preschoolers which is any child under the age of 5. But this would be a great app for kids 5-7 to practice sight words as they are old enough to learn them.
Great app to teach sight words to your pre-schooler
My grandson started playing this on my iPad and could not put it down.
He really enjoys puzzles and the tic tac toe portion caught his interest when he realized the words were in both places.
At 4 years old he loved to play hide and seek with the kangaroo. It is so worth getting this for your preschooler
Son loves the game
This has helped him remembering sight words.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
