Teaches high frequency Sight Words from the Fry, Dolch or Magic 200 word lists, a total of over 300 words. Kids play through 6 games over 22 stages to complete the course. There is an interactive word list for each stage for checking progress. Many schools expect students to know all of these words by the end of the 3rd year of school; however, it is quite possible to have mastered them by the end of the first year of school. Good readers will do this easily.


To start with there are 6 words per level, progressing to 12 words per level as skill and confidence build. A reward screen shows progress. Parent controls allow unlock of all levels and to reset progress. The games each emphasize different skills which improve:        

6 Sight word games that require different skills and develop distinct competencies

Each plays a part in building fine motor coordination, on task time, concentration, print concepts, and the association between spoken and written words, word recognition, fluency, and overall success in reading.

 Matching a word to the same word, (visual discrimination, one to one correspondence, visual tracking)  Finding a pair of words – both auditory memory and visual memory  Building a word from its component parts, i.e. the letters – one to one correspondence, attendance to word shapes, and understands that words are made up of letters


 Seeing and hearing a word, remembering it and then identifying words that are not the same  Seeing a word then remembering it and identifying it on the next screen,(visual memory)  Hearing a word and identifying a word from a selection – reading and applying what has been remembered from previous games

We are looking to give mastery at each stage before progressing to the next set of words. This over-learning gives students loads of confidence, and a framework of words that appear regularly in text that they can instantly read.
