For Educators and Parents
This is a memory matching word game designed by teachers with fun and learning in mind. There are four lists, including Essentials for primary school, and dedicated 1st and 2nd grades. Our lists include Dolch Sight Words and is based on our phonics program. The phonic method of teaching uses the common sense premise that it is better to learn a concept instead of individual words. For example, if a child is taught the -ight sound (s)he can spell words like night, might, sight etc. much faster that learning one word at a time.
The big bonus is that you can add your own custom words, including voice recordings.
Kids are rewarded for learning with simple, easy-to-use coloring pages, which they can save for later use.

Includes
Creative coloring pages. Now featuring our clever clues to remember tricky words.
Memory Match – match spelling words, pictures, spoken English words, and more
