Background and importance of using the Dolch Sight Words:

The original Dolch Sight Words List is a list of frequently used words compiled by Edward William Dolch, PhD. The list was first prepared in 1936. Though Dr. Dolch compiled the list based on children's books of his era. The list contains 220 "service words" that have to be easily recognized in order to achieve reading fluency in the English language. The original word list excludes nouns, which comprise a separate 95-word noun list.

Many of the original 220 Dolch words cannot be learned by pictures or "sounded out" using common sound/letter phonics patterns and have to be learned by sight; hence the term, "sight words." The original Dolch words which compromise of 220 words and the additional 95 nouns is usually divided into grades, though for native English speakers, all the Dolch Sight Words should be learned before elementary education begins.

    The font is fine and it would easily earn a five if it wasn't all caps. Children need to be exposed to print the way they will be reading it.

    For the word "where" the voice says "were". Also, I feel that the words Santa Claus and Christmas should not be sight words. While I do celebrate Christmas, I know many students who do not.

    My guy is PreK but the word list is mixed K-3. Also the font is hard for a beginner to parse. Something simple like Arial would be better.

    You aren't told which grade level the words are and there's no way to mark words the child already knows
