"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. Like most kids, my son always preferred playing video games 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 a secret sight word game and to my and my son's delight, he now has a 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 Secret Sight Words 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.

Secret Sight Words is an exciting educational game that helps kids rapidly learn sight words by sight, sound, and touch. Our philosophy is that games have to be fun first because if kids don't want to use them, then you have already lost. Fortunately, kids really like playing Secret Sight Words.

The interface is so easy to use that even a 9 month old baby will delight in using this app.

Exciting way to practice sight words

Another awesome game! I am looking forward to using this! Great way to keep track of individual children's progress. I like how it practices beginning sounds as well as sight words. The game is self correcting and encourages the child to read (form words) left to right. Being able to tap on each picture to hear its name is a great way to help those who have limited picture vocabulary. Having the sight word read to the child after they complete it is a great way to reinforce each word. I particularly like being able to add your own sight words!! GREAT JOB!


Great for Dibels K-1st FSF and NWF!!!

We're all looking for that perfect sight word or red word reading app, right? Well, this one should be added to the list! It's a sight word app, plus more.... The student must use first sound fluency of an object and then go the next step to match it to the correct letter. Great for K and 1st Dibels users. (Don't worry, if your student cannot name the object, all they need to do is touch it and it will name the object aloud.) Once the letters are arranged, they spell a sight word. It reads the sight word twice. What would be perfect is to perhaps use the sight word in a simple sentence. This is a very user friendly, instructional app!!!


Engaging way to practice sight words and letter-sound correspondence

I really like the game-like format of this app that encourages students to think about the beginning sounds and the corresponding letters. Then, students have to blend the sounds together to make the secret word. My favorite apps are those that practice multiple skills just like this app! I can't wait to use it in the fall.
