Smiley Sight Words teaches high-frequency sight words to your child!
The 1,600+ sight words included with Smiley Sight Words comprises up to 85% of the text in a child's early reading materials. A child who can recognize just 8 of 10 words in a sentence can typically understand its meaning! "Sight words" often cannot be illustrated via simple pictures or sounded out according to regular phonetic decoding rules, thus they need to be learned and recognized "on sight". Smiley Sight Words is a handy way to keep track of and encourage a child's mastery of their sight words.

Great app for techie kids
Paper flash cards were okay for my daughter (6) but didn't inspire her to learn her words. We found this app we both love it. I can create custom lists based on the word lists her teacher sends home. I also liked that I could consolidate just the words she needed to learn. She likes earning "thumbs up" and "wings" after she gets it right three times in a row. It's not an app that a kid should do alone since they have the ability to mark thumbs up or down themselves but I would definitely recommend for kids who maybe don't learn as well with old-school paper things.
I've tried other sight word Apps and this is my favorite. I love that it comes equipped with Fry's word list as well as many others including the alphabet (separate uppercase/lowercase list), numbers (including spelling in separate list), family, shapes, and days of the week. I really like that I can customize my own lists. My kids learn 5 words at a time. I make my lists in the order they are being learned and include previously learned words for review. I got more than my money's worth with this app!
Great, simple app that can be used anytime and anywhere to review sight words. It keeps up with your progress and automatically advances to the next level of learning.
