Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Learn Sight Words is a collection of virtual flash cards. The app has 300 of the most common English-language words written on them. Touching the face at the top of the screen will read any of the words aloud. Kids (or parents) can flag words that need to be practiced more.

QUALITY
 

If you're interested in your child being able to drill sight words on his or her own, then LEARN SIGHT WORDS could serve a purpose. But, there's nothing special here  -- illustrations, animations, sounds -- to keep the kids interested. Kids can hear words spoken aloud, and can flag difficult words, but that's about it. Also, the 300 words found here are only a fraction of what you'll find on some other sight word apps.
