Description

“To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark.” Victor Hugo

Wouldn’t it be great to give your child a head start with his or her reading skills? Educators agree that learning the Dolsch Sight Words is a mandatory step in making fluent readers.

These sight words make up 60% or more of the words used in classroom books, and educators agree that they should be learned by sight and not by phonics (as many of the word cannot be sounded out). It’s a fact that children who master the sight words make better readers whether English is their first language or if they are English language learners (ELL). Reading is a fundamental skill for a child to be successful in school.

“If you read a lot of books you are considered well read. But if you watch a lot of TV, you're not considered well viewed.” Lily Tomlin

QuikTap Words is a fun game aimed at making better readers by allowing children to play continuously with the highly regarded Dolsch Sight Words that are grouped by grades preK, Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade and 3rd Grade. It is a game that can be played by young preschoolers, by the older 3rd graders, or by a child of any age who needs practice or is struggling with his or her reading skills.

QuikTap Words groups the sight words into 5 groups within each grade. A group can contain 8 to 12 words; Group 1 contains the easier words and Group 5 contains to more difficult words. The child can start with Group 1 and advance to higher groups as he or she masters the words and gains more confidence.

Quiktap Words has two different modes of operation. First is the Game Mode that begins when the [Start Game] button is touched. In the Game Mode the game presents a sequence of words and the player must repeat the word sequence by tapping the large word buttons in the correct order. The game starts slow with one word sequences and becomes more challenging as the word sequences become longer (sequences = 1 word – then 2 words – then 3 words and so forth). The player can stop playing and practice the words by touching the [Practice Words] button. In the Practice Mode each word in the Group(s) selected are presented and sounded out in a flash card format. The player may switch back and forth freely between the Game Mode and Practice Mode.

"There are many little ways to enlarge your child's world. Love of books is the best of all." Jacqueline Kennedy
