App DescriptionHigh frequency words, often known as â€˜sight wordsâ€™
introduces the 100 most common words used in the written English language.
Whilst some could be read phonetically, many of them are difficult or phonetic exceptions (e.g. â€˜theâ€™ and â€˜herâ€™ are difficult whereas â€˜andâ€™ is easy phonetically). They are often simply recognised by the child when reading because they occur so often.
This App contains the most common words, a few colours and the numbers 1 to 10 in 12 lists with approximately 10 words in each list.
There is a Learning section and a Practise section. To see which words are in any of the lists just click on the â€˜?â€™ circle on the list.
In the Learning area the child can choose 1 list to learn at a time and learns those words using a â€˜slideshow effectâ€™ or using â€˜tap and listenâ€™. In tap and listen, the whole word list is shown and the user taps each word to hear it.
