Feed the hungry dog to learn spelling, save the Wordaliens, get the gears moving and more! Developed in cooperation with educational specialists, Action Sight Words Games helps children to become confident readers by teaching them in a fun, interactive way high-frequency words from the popular Dolch Sight Words List.

================================
WHY TO TEACH SIGHTWORDS?
================================

Sight words are words in English language that do not have a simple one-to-one correspondence between sounds and letters — in other words, they have to be memorized and instantly recognized — recognized on sight, so to speak. In an average, non-technical text, they comprise over 50-70% of total words.

Therefore, children who can quickly recognize sight words can read better because while they read, they can focus on inferring the words they do not know while still understanding most of the grammatical structure of the text. Learning sight words is thus a crucial step towards an enormous reading improvement.

Action Sight Words Games application offers children an easy-to-use interface and a grand choice of six fun educational games through which children can acquire mastery over this subject matter.

Best app Ive found so far for teaching Sight Words (5 stars)
I am a teacher and was thrilled to discover this app. From my experience, how quickly children can recognize Dolch sight words is a very good indicator of their reading proficiency and they can greatly benefit from learning these words. I also remember a few kids who experienced quite a bit of difficulty in reading initially, but after learning Dolch words, their reading proficiency jumped up. Ive tried a few other apps teaching Sight Wor
