Top Apps For Sight Words (best Android apps for kids)


My first two children learned to read without any trouble at all, but my next two children required more help and repetition to pick up their sight words. I brought home a packet of index cards with the required words to learn for the week and sat with my child, flashing the cards over and over, hoping that the pain would be minor and short lived. That was before I discovered sight words apps! Hooray for technology and making a boring task fun. These must have apps are designed to make sight words engaging and give your children the repetition they need without the dullness of flashcards. My personal favorite is Kids Sight Words, while my daughter really likes Pet Escape 1. What is your child's favorite, or are there any more that you would add to this list?

If you would like to purchase any of these apps, please support Smart Apps For Android and use our download links. Thanks!
