In the phonics world, sight words are the words that doesn't follow the blending rules. http://www.thephonicspage.org/On%20Reading/sightwords.html provides more information about sight words.

This was the 1st app I bought. Guess I should have read the reviews first ! But I was SO excited to see a Dolce Sight Word App I just bought it. All is does is show 6 words and the have to pick which ones are sight words. It does NOT say the word to help you learn the word. Total waste of $$$. The kids don't know what words are on the list of 220 words !!! Get Teach me Kindergarten or Smiley Sight Words. Those 2 are awesome !!!!
Agree completely with first reviewer. This makes no sense. My kids want to learn to read the sight words, not distinguish btwn sight and non-sight. Am hoping for free upgrade to make this a real "game" for kids....
No educational value here-asking kids to do something confusing and pointless-don't!
