(Sight words are commonly used words that children are encouraged to memorize as a whole by sight, so that they can automatically recognize these words when they see them without having to use any distracting strategies. Sight words account for a large percentage of the words used in literature for children. One advantage for children being able to recognize sight words automatically is that the child will be able to identify the majority of words in a book before they even attempt to read it. When the child is able to do that they'll be able to concentrate on the meaning and comprehension as they read without having to stop to figure out the actual word.)

Too difficult to operate and not nearly enough fun to keep kids attention. Block letters, fonts and coloring make it difficult to select the exact letters you want which distracts from the actual goal of practicing reading!

Developer Response ,

Hello, I'm sorry that you found the app too difficult to operate. It's mainly designed for ease of use with tablets, but its been used and enjoyed by thousands of people around the world on various devices. What device are you using when you experience a difficulty of selecting letters?
