Description

Learn to read while playing a game with Sight Words!

Pocket Wally's Sightwords is a fun game that helps young children learn how to read by memorizing sight words - a set of the most frequently used words and also words that can't be read phonetically or sounded out. Learning sight words is the first step in reading readiness.

Unlike other sight word programs, Pocket Wally's Sightwords includes word sets for pre-K, Kindergarten, first, second and third grades.

A future version will include the nouns word set. We just didn't have time to get them in.

Play begins when a particular sight word appears onscreen. Swipe the screen from right to left to see and hear that sight word in a sentence.  Then tap the sight word in the sentence to move on to the next word.  When the child has recognized five sight words in sentences correctly, he or she wins the round and gets to choose a groovy prize which will be kept in their Prize Bag. There are multiple sentences per word so that the child doesn't always see the same thing.

Pocket Wally Sightwords is based on The Dolch Word List which was originally compiled by Edward William Dolch, PhD, in 1948. The Dolch Sights Words are a group of 220 words that are taught in many schools' reading programs. It includes the most frequently used words in the English language.  It also contains words that are difficult for a beginning reader to sound out phonetically, making it necessary to learn these words "by sight."  Learning sight words is an essential foundation upon which to base later reading skills.  The key to learning the words is repetition and practice.
