Playing with the Sight Word Hangman app gives your child an educational advantage over their peers. The Sight Word Hangman app utilizes 250 sight words--the most commonly used words in the English language. Sight Word Hangman entertains and engages your child, while increasing their vocabulary, spelling and reading levels.
Sight Word Hangman is an application where your child learns the most frequently used English words without sounding the words out letter by letter.
The game is simple, utilizing touch screen operations, colorful and comical graphics to persuade your child to play and learn. Sight Word Hangman begins by ”Selecting a List”, and touching the word “Repeat” to listen to the word. The child hears and views the word then makes their selection by pressing on the word that they think is correct. If the child chooses the correct sight word, then they automatically advance to the next word. If the child guesses the incorrect word, a body part of the hangman shows up on the screen and then the child is given 5 more opportunities to guess the correct answer. If the child would like to hear the sight word again, they can press the “repeat” button to hear the word again and pick another answer. The child can see their score at the end of the game so they can try to improve their score the next time.
Our 9 year old is beyond the words listed, but it is absolutely FANTASTIC for our 5 year old, and he felt SO proud of being able play hangman - he did very well and was grinning the whole time!
Sight Word Hangman is a solid, well-designed app for helping children recognize high-frequency words by sight.
