"A great way to give parents a break and let your kid have fun and learn to read at the same time." - Jen, Kindergarten teacher and mom of three.
I have a confession to make. My son's favorite game was Fruit Ninja and I was getting increasingly frustrated with having my son waste a lot of time on a fun but mindless game while he was still struggling to master his sight words and learning to read.
So I decided to create our very own Sight Words slicing game and to my and my son's delight, he now has a new favorite game where he is having fun and learning at the same time.
My sons skills in recognizing Sight Words have dramatically improved since he started playing this game and now I no longer have to feel guilty when I need a five minute break to take care of the laundry or prepare lunch for the kids. I know that they are having fun and that they are learning at the same time.
Warning: Your child will keep begging for your iPhone or iPad after they try this app.

Doesn't completely display some words
The words that come in from the sides never completely make it on to the screen. If the child can't see the whole word it defeats the purpose of the game. Other than that the app functions well, and my daughter loves it.
I read the reviews, crossed my fingers, and hoped I wouldn’t be one of the unlucky few without sound.... and found that there was no sound, so you don’t know which words to slice! I went through & meticulously followed the troubleshooting. No luck. I immediately emailed the company and got a response about a week later with the same troubleshooting cut & paste they posted in their review responses. I replied back asking for a refund and it’s now 2+ weeks later. If you can’t fix the bug, at least honor a refund request!
don't do it!
This is one of the worst apps I have come across. What a waste. The words don't always come all the way out from the edges, and you can keep moving you fingers across the screen and it just goes on. Slicing nothing and it will give a score. What is supposed to be learned ??? Sight words that never come all out on screen and slice or move finger over screen to what purpose if it just goes on. If you want to have your child learn sight words find something better than this and do not get this one.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
