High frequency words
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
High frequency words, often known as ‘sight words’
introduces the 200 most common words used in the written English language.
Whilst some could be read phonetically, many of them are difficult or phonetic exceptions (e.g. ‘the’ and ‘her’ are difficult whereas ‘and’ is easy phonetically). They are often simply recognised by the child when reading because they occur so often.
This App contains the most common words, a few colours and the numbers 1 to 10 in 12 lists with approximately 10 words in each list.
There is a Learning section and a Practise section. To see which words are in any of the lists just click on the ‘?’ circle on the list.
In the Learning area the child can choose 1 list to learn at a time and learns those words using a ‘slideshow effect’ or using ‘tap and listen’. In tap and listen, the whole word list is shown and the user taps each word to hear it.

What's New in Version 1.3
Now fully compatible with iOS 9.
Why have you changed it?!
This used to be absolutely brilliant, the penguin run game was the best way for my daughter to learn to read...but now, instead of the different words to jump to, the penguin game displays awful miss-spellings of each word which are totally inappropriate and confusing when trying to learn the correct shape of a word. The app has become completely unusable and my daughter is totally dispondent now. Why oh why have you changed it!! Please, please put it back how it was :( :( there is no way of contacting the developer, all their website shows you is a map of cornwall, not even an address or email.
