Sight words can be a tough bunch, but this varied content provides lots of repetition through a variety of games to help boost kids' familiarity with a sizable collection of words. In Sight Words - An early reading & spelling adventure!, kids get exposure to these tricky words both as a whole (in the reading games) and broken down letter by letter (in the spelling games). The games themselves may not be the most exciting things around and the narrator's delivery can be bland; however, most of the play experience is presented in a kid-friendly, appealing package, and there's enough variety to keep kids going. With words divided by levels, and games with varying levels of difficulty, kids of different ages should find something at the right challenge level. Being able to add your own words or emphasize certain words is a great touch for customization and real involvement in the learning process. The main thing missing here is context, such as using the words in a sentence, or seeing them in stories. Overall, however, there's a lot of bang for your buck in this thoughtfully constructed app.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
