Help Your Child Learn to Read
Sight Words, also known as the Dolch List are an integral part in learning how to read. The Dolch Word list contains 315 words that are broken down into appropriate age groups. It is important for young readers to be able to instantly recognize these high frequency words in order to be proficient and fluent readers.

"Must-have app! My daughter (23 months) loves the flashcards with the sounds as my wife and I have recorded our voices with the sounds each animal makes!

Ratings and Reviews
Love this app
I have been using this app for several years. At first the preloaded sight word groups were the same words that the school used. Now they have changed and the customization features are wonderful to have. There have been times when the app wouldn’t work properly and would crash. However, I have. It experienced an issue lately and would recommend this app to anyone who needs an app for sight word practice.
We recently had our Title I iPads updated and I lost my original Sight Words app. I am greatly disappointed that the current version of this app does not have the choice of choosing the sight words from a group of 3, 4, or 5. It was a great way for my struggling students to have to discriminate among multiple words to find the correct sight word. I am still able to input my own list of words & record those words myself, but the app has lost most of its charm for both me & my students.
Would be nice if you could hear it
I was looking forward to this app for the customization feature, so I could be sure the words in the app accommodate her classroom’s list. I started recording my own words and the playback was very quiet, and my phone was on full volume. So I thought maybe it’s just the recording feature. I went to a preloaded list, and the audio is just as quiet. You can barely hear it. Makes the app useless.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
