Description

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 ***Parent's Choice Silver Award Winner Fall 2015*** ***By tapping into every kid's love of hide-and-seek, your child will practice the cognitive skills necessary to remember sight words.

  • 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
  • Highly recommended!

    I would recommend this app for parents. It's been a really great tool for practicing vocabulary words!
  • 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.
  • Cool and useful app

    This app is a great teaching tool. I use the typewriter with my students, very efficient for learning to write new words.
  • Independence for my little reader!

    I like that my daughter can be independent while she plays this game. The instructions are super clear ans the games are familiar so she can easily navigate them while I work with another one of my kids, or make dinner. It keeps her very busy.
  • Frustrated

    I was very excited when I first got this app. I thought it'd be a great way for my students to practice their sight words. I was extremely disappointed to learn that this app is not used friendly at all. It's difficult to switch between players, my students can not do it independently. I have to log in every time they want to switch players. Their accounts do not sync across various devices either. All in all, this is a very disappointing app and I will be looking for something more user friendly.
  • Great app!
