In Sight Words "Audible," parents and teachers can choose from dolch words, first grade words, or second grade words. In this program, the sight words are narrated and the student must drag and drop the correct letters in the blank boxes to correctly spell each word. If a student gets stuck on a letter, he or she can click the question mark below the blank box and the program will narrow the choices to two letters. The program gives immediate feedback and students can exit at any time. Upon exit, parents can print out a report that indicates student performance during the session. This program is great for students who excel at reading sight words but need practice spelling them.

This great program allows teachers and parents to use pre-made sight word lists, or, to make their own sight word lists (which can be saved) to practice with students. Sight words appear as large flash cards. Parents or teachers can keep score by clicking the red "x" button or green "check" button. The program also offers accuracy reports.

ABC Order for Kids

 

These interactive ABC Order exercises are perfect for elementary school students. Simply choose a word list from those provided and then select individual words, or, have the program generate random words from the list. Students must drag and drop the words on the left to their correct ABC order positions on the right. The "hint" button will help students focus on the first letters of similar words. Teachers and parents can also generate and save their own lists words for students to use in ABC order practice.
