Pad Apps and Activities for Sight Word Practice

 
 

Best FREE iPad apps for sight word practice

Today I’m sharing some my favorite iPad apps and activities for practicing sight words.  All of these apps are free, and some have the option to purchase additional words/activities.  

   

Sight Words: Kids Learn by Teacher Created Materials

 
The kids start off with tracing each word they see.  If they don’t know the word, they can press the star and have it read aloud to them.  They can also record their own voice by clicking on the microphone.  As they make their way through the list it allows them to play different games/activities.  The bottom images show two of the activities: tic-tac-toe and sentence building with word tiles.  This app is free with the option to purchase additional words.

My students love slicing their way through the words that pop up on this free app.  If they get a word wrong, it gives it to them again to make sure they have mastered it.

Students can choose from a variety of colors (even glitter!) to write with using this free app.  I’ll have them either do sight word steps or write sentences using their sight words.

This is a free and simple app that allows students to drag letters onto the board to build words.
 
Students drag tiles to make given words with this free app.  I love that I can customize the lists and options to differentiate for my students.  In the picture below, the word is given and read aloud.  You can also make it more challenging by removing the word so it functions like a word scramble.

We’ve only used the free version of this app, but there is an option to purchase more words and games.  My students have a blast trying to swipe the eggs that are flying across the screen.  Points are lost for swiping the wrong word to discourage them from guessing.  Just be sure to change the speed if it’s too easy.

In addition to these apps, my students also use my audio QR code activities to practice their sight words.  My kiddos love moving around the room during center time, so the “Listen and Write” activity is probably their favorite. They scan a QR code to hear my voice reading one of the words aloud.  They then write the word they heard on the appropriate line of their recording sheet.

For the “Listen and Match” activity, students scan a QR code to listen to a sight word being read aloud.  Then they match it to the puzzle piece displaying that word.

For the “Listen and Color” activity, students scan the QR code to listen to the word and then color that word on their recording sheet.

So far I have these three activities completed for the primer, first, and secondgrade Dolch lists.  Since I’ve been feeling especially grateful lately for my loyal followers, I’d like to give one of these packs away.  All you have to do is leave a comment with your email and tell me which pack you would use in your classroom.  I will choose a random winner on Tuesday night.  This giveaway has ended.  Congrats to Heather and thanks to all who entered.:)
