Sight word mastery is by far the most important key to fluent reading.
Once students master sight words, they will be able to read up to 75% of what is printed in almost any piece of literature written at a fifth grade level or below. So, how exactly do teachers and parents help children master sight words?
Step 1: Teach Sight Words in Context
When children see words used in sentences rather than in isolation, they are more likely to remember them because they develop an understanding of the word’s meaning. Sentence based instruction is an extremely effective method for helping children learn sight words.
Step 2: Teach Sight Words Through Repetition
Children do not learn new sight words by being exposed to them only once. Repetition is key to sight word acquisition. Our app is specially designed to maximize word exposeure. Answers to our questions are chosen from a group of same level sight words. When the answer choice is made, the student must decide between four sight word options. It is our philosophy that to learn what something is, you have to learn what it isn’t! In choosing the answer, each possible answer word must be read and a decision must be made.
Each Matering Sight Words app contains 95 fill in the blank sentences followed by 4 possible answers. Fluent, confident reading is right around the corner!

Angry! Angry! Angry!
Don't buy this app!!! I am so angry. This is an exact duplicate of Level 1, down to every last question! Shame on you. I want my money back IMMEDIATELY!
Sped up my daughter's reading
My daughter is a good reader. Sometimes she sees a word and can't remember what it is. I bought this and it really helped. She is able to recognize words quicker now and her reading speed has increased. I am not saying that she reads twice as fast, but she seems to be able to move along pretty quickly now. For the price you really have nothing to lose. I am going to buy the level 1 and the level 3. I have all of the reading comprehension apps from these people and have been really happy. I just wish they had more apps for each grade level. I tried to contact them but there was something wrong with their website. i give this 5 stars.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
