A Sight Words Read and Spell app with checkmark and review - FREE - HD
By Hetal Shah
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
1) 300 sight words from Dolch list
2) Presented by grade level
3) Two modes available:
- Read the sight words
- Spell the sight words!
4) Once the word is read/spelled correctly it can be marked off by touching the checkmark agains the word. This helps to filter out the words that have already been mastered and the ones that need to be practiced.
5) Once all the words in a level are checked you get a checkmark against that level on the main menu.
6) In read mode: you can also review all the words together on the reveiw screen where the words are presented in list format. Very useful for parents to go over the list and quiz the child.
App looks good but to learn sight words they cannot always be in the same order or kids will memorize the order and not the actual word. Just like how some kids can "read" their favorite story but in reality they are just reciting it.
Hard to hear
First word to spell was and...could not understand at all. May be a British accent???
One star is one too many. Super lite would be good description. We teach students to spell most words in lower case yet this app offers only upper case letters. Not well thought out. I'll delete this and search for a good one.
