Eggy Words 250 is an application designed to help children recognise and learn sight words. Sight words are words that readers should know automatically “at sight”, such as he, the, was and where. This app covers the first 250 sight words using a fun and motivating game to keep kids learning.

Ratings and Reviews
I just bought this apps but I couldn't open at all, waste of money !!!
The App will not open, just an error message. Do not purchase.
Levels confusing and child can progress to hard words without doing easier words first.
I love reading eggs but was a bit disapointed with the app. The levels in the beginning are unlocked and it is not clear which game contains what level of words. It keeps the kids attention but I don't think they are learning anything as they jump from one word to another without getting the three eggs and revealing a puzzle piece. It would be good if parents could go into settings and select words for the kids that they want them to learn or they had to finish one word before changing to the next. It would also be good if there was a parent screen where you could see what words the kids had done. It is also unclear to the kids that you have to get three eggs to get a puzzle piece. Love the game though, a bit like squash ant but with words, I would much rather the kids were doing this than mindless rubbish.
PS I just downloaded the free eggy 100 to compare and it is much better as the levels are locked! I should have just done that one first!
