***** a MUST app for sight words
Developed in cooperation with educators, Say It Sight Words is the ONLY app in the app store that provides an independent learning opportunity for students developing sight word (high frequency word) mastery that is both fun and engaging.
•Siri-like speech recognition – students can say the word, and get automatic feedback.
•Create custom word lists quickly without having to record your voice using the built-in text-to-speech feature.
•More card lists – the lists most teachers use. Thirty five card lists containing over three thousand words.
•Practice spelling sight words with a simplified QWERTY keyboard to meet new core competency requirements (some states only)
•A space age game of “hangman” that challenges the student to identify the word that is spoken.
•Universal app - works on iPad, iPhone, and iPod!
•No adds or in-app purchases.
•Elimination Mode: Correct cards get temporarily eliminated so the student can focus on the words they are struggling with.
•Cards can be sorted randomly or alphabetically.
•Customizable settings allow you to adjust the application for the students skill level
•Adjustable flashcard timer allows the student to practice as though they were being tested.

Ratings and Reviews
Nice interface but doesn't work well with customized words
Definitely has potential, but my primary problem is that I need to create custom lists for spelling tests and the apps built-in speaking capability butchers the simple words (sip, will, rip, etc.). Also, there is no option to record the word yourself I tried using the built-in word lists by selecting favorites that corresponded to the custom list I was trying to set up, but that process is tedious because you have to actually view each word in the list through the flash card function to select favorites. This means scrolling through every word in the list. An easier method would be to be able to check off the words in the lists on the settings page.
I really like the interface and would recommend it if the pre-created dolce word lists were all a user wanted, but it's not useful at all for users wanting to use custom lists and the built-in speaking capability.
Best choice for parents
I tried some other apps, and this one was the best balance between a game and something that I could use with my son to help him catch up to some of the other kids in his class. When I work with him I like to use the elimination mode to help us focus on the words he needs to practice. He's gone from learning a list every two to three weeks to learning a list a week and has been making better progress.
Thanks for a useful and fun flash card game.
I love using this with my own 1st grader. The ability to level the lists and carry over words she struggled with from previous lists is a +. The reverse flash cards are great when I can't sit with her to be sure she is getting it.
I also use this app with kids in my class if they have to sit out for P.E. I pull up the appropriate list and then they have something to do while my class plays.
