060802 Sight Words 1 Pro : Easily teach the most common words in English for reading and spelling by ReadingDoctor Pty Ltd   ReviewSight words apps are aplenty in the App Store but how many of them come with mnemonic support, customizable levels of difficulty and sentences that show how the words are used? Sight Words Pro by Reading Doctor offers all of these in their unique, patent-pending teaching tool to teach students to instantly recognize and understand 200 most common sight words and it is fully customizable to meet the needs of both young beginning readers and struggling older readers.

You first make a choice between Australian, American or British English. You next key in your students’ names and then select the student with whom you are working with. This brings you to the activity menu where you can set up the game to suit this student’s ability. The settings page is accessible from here if you want turn off the high scores screen, in-game audio encouragement, in-game reward animations and sounds. There are more options in Sight Words Pro than the typical app and they may seem overwhelming at first but they are actually quite easy to understand and manage after trying them out. Individual help buttons are available for each option, if you need assistance and you can watch a tutorial video just before starting the game.

This app is all about options. You can begin with the first set of 25 most frequently used sight words, work with only 2/3/4-letter words or set up a custom list of words to work with. Each word comes with a sentence showing how the word is used and a small visual associated with that sentence. These memory aids are especially helpful for younger students or struggling older readers, to remember how the words are read and what they mean. You can change the amount of mnemonic support given or turn them off during the game set-up when the student becomes a more confident reader.

The app is essentially a listening game where the app will say a word and the student needs to find the correct word tile before the time runs out. As the student correctly identifies a word repeatedly, the mnemonic support is removed progressively. You can change the number of word tiles (up to a maximum of 25) shown per session as well as the number of times a word must be identified correctly before it is considered as learnt (and removed from that level). The game mechanics and scoring system itself is just as comprehensive as the teaching program, with bonus points for different types of successes. My only wish is to have a similarly comprehensive progress tracking system for each student.
