The maker of the number 1 smash hit Math BINGO presents Word BINGO!
Practice reading and spelling over 300 Dolch sight words by playing 4 fun games.
What are Sight Words?
Sight Words are words that are recognized immediately (on sight) without phonetically decoding or sounding out parts.
What is the Dolch Word List?
The Dolch Word List is a list of English sight words by Edward William Dolch, PhD. The list is comprised of 220 words grouped by level, and includes pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions and verbs. There are also 95 nouns on a separate list.
Sight Word BINGO includes four different games!
Listen to the word the BINGO Bug speaks and tap on the corresponding word on the screen. Get four words correct vertically, horizontally or diagonally to get BINGO and win! The quicker you get BINGO the better your score. Your score is based on time and the lower the score, the better. Earn a BINGO Bug when you beat your best score.
Tap and drag the letters to spell the word the BINGO bug speaks. Spell ten words to play a bonus game! You can choose to show or hide the spelling of each word in game settings.
You have one hundred seconds to find as many BINGO Bugs as possible and fling them into the warp zone! To find the bug, tap the word the BINGO bug speaks. If you tap the correct word, a BINGO Bug and a bungee cord will appear. Pull downward and left or right to aim the BINGO Bug toward the warp zone hole. Let go to fling the BINGO Bug! Bounce the bug off of the wall before going into the warp zone for more points. The game will end once you incorrectly recognize three words.
Word It Up
Stop the word blocks from stacking up to the top of the screen! Tap on the word the BINGO bug speaks to get rid of the block. Tilt the device to change where the block lands. Try not to click on the wrong word or you’ll lose points and the block will stay forever.

Kindergarten/first grade teacher
Bingo Bugs rock!,,,, We all love the hands on action of the game. It really addresses the needs of my children to help them practice spelling and sight words with plenty of fun and good feedback built into the game. Bingo Bug offers several levels of practice in three speeds which encourages my slowest readers and challenges my fastest readers. Children practice spelling and reading several ways. The easiest of these has built in supports to scaffold the most timid readers. Great job!
has become impossible to play
This app was a great tool for in reading class, but now it is not. When we first started using it it was easy to score "bingo bugs" and this was a great motivator. Since then, though, the amount of seconds allowed to score a bug has gotten lower and lower to the point that bugs just can't be gotten at all. We will not be using this app anymore till you fix this "bug."
