Kindergarten Sight Words features multiple interactive activities to introduce and practice use of high frequency words critical for reading. High frequency words or sight words are the building blocks for children learning to read English. This application includes 100 English sight words selected for kindergarten age children using a modern, updated version of the Dolch Word list.
Level 1 and 2 contain 8 high frequency words with 5 activities to introduce and reinforce the English words. In levels 3-15 each level includes the words from all previous levels and introduces 5 to 7 new words. All words are pronounced clearly by a native English speaker. Words are kindergarten age specific.
Activities in each level include:
Word Wheel - A quick introduction to each sight word then quiz to reinforce word recognition. Hints that reinforce knowledge because the first exposure might not make it stick.
Space Spelling - jumbled letters need rearranged to spell the words. This activity has context-sensitive help so that even beginners will be able to learn spellings. Correctly spelled words are rewarded with rainbow rockets.
Jungle Bingo - Word bingo game includes context sensitive help and animated text to reinforce reading and learning.
Oceans of Wordsearch - Underwater themed word search with context-sensitive help and interactive sea creatures as rewards for found words.
Memory Menagerie - Animals flip to reveal the sight words. Correct matches rewarded with animals flapping off the screen.
