SightWords Pro by 24x7digital LLC is more than just black and white flash cards. Open this app and see the sight words in color. Customize the background color and word colors based on what works best or is most engaging for the child.

Users can also choose the word lists or upload your own based on the specific needs. The app comes preloaded with Dolch, Fry, Pinnell-Fountas, UK, and many other high-frequency word lists. If a different word list is needed, a user can add custom words and even record their own pronunciations. This is great to tailor the app for a child's specific needs. Word lists can even be shared with other users.

After a word appears, it will not be said unless touched. Words can be flagged if they are missed or starred when they are mastered. Kids can shake the device to shuffle and reorder the cards.

There are so many open opportunities with uses for this app, I wish we had enough codes for all our followers, but we do have 19, so get those entries in.!

Help your young learner master the most frequently used words in the English language!

A child who can recognize just 8 of 10 words in a sentence can typically understand its meaning! "Sight words" often cannot be illustrated via simple pictures or sounded out according to regular phonetic decoding rules, thus they need to be learned and recognized "on sight". Our SightWords app is a handy way to encourage a child's mastery of their sight words either as part of a structured reading program at school, or as an impromptu study session when standing in line at the grocery store.

SightWords Pro contains a selection of over 1,600+ sight words which comprises up to 85% of the text in a child's early reading materials -- comprehensively compiled from Dolch, Fry, Pinnell-Fountas, UK, and many other high-frequency word lists. Choose a pre-defined flash card word list, or build and save custom flash card lists to match what is taught in the classroom. Add custom words and record your own pronunciations. Share custom word lists via Bump™ or email. Mark flash cards with stars or flags. Flash cards respond to swipes and taps. Shake your device to shuffle the words. Beautiful voice-pronunciations for all included words.

• Over 1,600+ essential sight words
• Upper and lower-case alphabet, numbers 0-100, colors, shapes, animals, months

• Customizable word lists with copy/paste
