SightKicks™ provides a quick & easy way for your child to practice recognizing and reading sight words out loud.

"My five year old daughter was struggling with recognizing certain words, we tried working with her and she would become frustrated and not really get anything from our work. We decided to try this app and she loves it, she looks forward to going on it every day and her ability to recognize and pronounce words has improved drastically. Thank you for this app it is an A+ in my book"

What are Sight Words?

* the most frequently used words in the English language
* the building blocks of fluent reading
* tested by the Sight Word Efficiency (SWE) subtest.

We've included word categories from the classic Dolch lists and those actually being used in the classroom.

Over 500 words included!

SightKicks™ Sight Words is an Android smartphone app for readers in preschool or kindergarten. Eight categories (Dolch-Pre-Primer, Dolch-Primer, Dolch-One, Dolch-Two, Dolch-Three, Dolch-Nouns, Word-Mix-1, Word-Mix-2) for you to choose from each containing multiple word lists.

For maximum reading improvement please encourage your child to practice their Sight Words with SightKicks™ on a daily or every other day basis.

*** Practicing is the key ***

No game can substitute for this essential effort.

Recently changed in this version

* Fixed issue in which users were prompted to install different voice data languages when they already had English voice data installed.
* Added a prompt to provide the user with a choice to install the Android voice data or not.
(Please note: voice data is NOT required for the app to function, it only enables the text-to-speech functionality of the app: where a long-press on a particular word will result in the device speaking the word)

    This is a greaT app for my kindergarTner who is learning her sighT words. the developers were very diligent in fixing a bug that initially did not let the app work properly on my tablet. I highly recommend this app for any young child learning to read.
