Wednesday Website: Sight Word Ninja
Sight Word Ninja is an free app you can download through itunes. It is a fun way to do word work. It is just like fruit ninja where the player slices through images on the screen. Instead of fruit, though, students slice through the word that they hear as it appears on the screen. It starts off easy with words that students only need to identify by matching the beginning sound to the initial letter. Then it becomes increasingly challenging by requiring students to match all the sounds in the words. If they miss a word, it appears a few more times for review.
Students enjoy playing this game and reinforcing their automatic word identification at the same time. It is most appropriate for students in kindergarten or beginning first grade. Still, this is definitely worth checking out.
