See Read Say
Grade Recommendation: PreK - 3rd
Specific Skill: Sight Words
For iPad, iPod, or Both: Both
This app is quite simple. By that, I mean it comes with few bells and whistles. What is does come with is Dolch sight word lists for words in the pre-primer, primer, and grades 1 - 3 levels. The lists cover all 220 words on the Dolch list.
After selecting a level, one word at a time appears. The user may choose 'Speak Word' for the iPad to read the word to them. Touch 'Next Word' or shake the iPad for a new word to appear.
In 'Settings' for this app, you can choose to randomize the words or have them appear in alphabetical order.
Teachers can type in the names of up to 4 users. The app will monitor their progress and save the data.
I highly recommend this app for any classroom that includes students just learning to read. At this price point, it's actually a steal.
