Do you find yourself trying to practice Sight Words with your child, but having trouble keeping them engaged? Are you frustrated with worksheets, paper flashcards, or other "cute" apps that lack the personalized repetition that you know your child really needs? Well, if you are looking for a tool that’ll help you teach your children way more efficiently so that you can accelerate their mastery of language and reading skills, Brainscape is the perfect app.

Our adaptive flashcard app is popular with people of all ages, from toddlers learning to read to medical school students preparing to take on some of the biggest exams of their lives. The magic lies in our flashcard algorithm, which uses spaced repetition to help serious learners of all ages study more effectively, based on proven cognitive learning principles.

The best Kindergarten and Pre-K sight words list

Each flashcard in Brainscape's Sight Words collection works like this:

  1. You ask your child to verbally pronounce the word on the screen (e.g. girl)
  2. Your child then"flips" the flashcard, and the correct audio pronunciation is played twice
  3. You then rate how well they knew the word, on a scale of 1-5
  4. Brainscape uses that confidence rating to determine how often to repeat that word

If your child doesn’t know the word well, Brainscape’s intelligent algorithm will repeat that flashcard more often. And if they do know it well, it won’t show it again for a while; though it will still be repeated now and then so that they don’t forget it.

And that's it! As a parent, you now have an easy go-to option to work with your child on their sight words no matter where you are. In as little as 5 minutes a day from your phone (or computer) you can see progress in your child's ability to recognize words on sight!

How Brainscape helps your child learn faster and remember for longer

The brain is hardwired to learn and remember information a certain way. The Brainscape™ flashcard app was born out of the question: what if we leveraged this hardwiring to help students learn more efficiently? Fueled by curiosity, our team of cognitive scientists from Columbia and Yale spent years developing a scientifically optimized learning platform to boost your learning.

Our "secret sauce" is a learning algorithm that delivers information to your brain in a way that optimizes its ability to retain that information. And it’s the spaced repetition of sight words at precisely the right interval for YOUR brain that makes Brainscape so effective for remembering the facts.

With Brainscape’s Sight Words app, you get:

  • 300+ Dynamic flashcards covering English sight words such as ‘little’, ‘we’, and other important vocabulary.
  • New vocabulary, which your child can cement in their brain using sample sentences, synonyms, pronunciation guidance, and reverse cards, in addition to clear definitions.
  • A customized flashcard repetition algorithm that cuts your child’s memorization time dramatically.
  • In-sync studying across Brainscape’s website and all iOS and Android devices.
  • Ongoing feedback, statistics, and visualization tools to help you track your child’s progress.

However you and your child choose to use these audio flashcards, we are confident that you will both love this experience and the reading skills that it helps develop. We wish you the best of luck on your learning journey!
