The Sight Word Adventure app is a great learning tool for preschoolers. With The Sight Word Adventure, children can play various games where they will learn to recognize, read and write up to 320 sight words! The game of hide-and-seek is the central idea behind most of the games, as children explore the cognitive skills necessary to remember sight words (i.e. visual attention, active listening and visual memorization). This app is recommended for children ages 3 through 8 years old.
As children have increased exposure to the sight words, they will begin to incorporate these words into their long term memory and personal vocabulary. The words are spread across 5 levels of difficulty, PreK through Grade 3. I love how kids can learn by simply playing through 7 different mini-games. Parents can choose to have their child practice with either uppercase or lowercase letters as well. Teachers and parents can also personalize and customize the gameplay to include specific sight words – think spelling lists, etc.
The app includes a real time dashboard which tracks your child’s progress. If you have more than one child playing the app, you can utilize separate accounts, as the app has a multi-user interface. This works great for families, as well as in the classroom.
I really enjoyed The Sight Word Adventure app! My three year old son is already beginning to learn some additional words through playing this app. I would definitely encourage parents of younger children to check this app out!
