Choose your GAME TYPE:

We’ve included 3 different ways to learn and practise these important vocabulary.

Copy & Type – This is the easiest game. Simply copy the word you see on screen.

Missing Letters – Players have to type the full word, but have to know which letter the ‘?’ or ‘??’ is/are hiding. There may be 1 or 2 letters missing from each word.

Listen & Type – This is the trickiest level, as the only clue players get is to hear the word to hear the SIGHT WORD SPOKEN.


Slow = It’s a bit easier and perfect for younger players or non-native speakers of English
Fast = Great for more confident learners who can spell quicker and know longer words. Much faster too!


All games are supported by FULL NATIVE SPEAKER AUDIO

HELP is just a tap away!

Every question comes with complete word help, so learners never need to get stuck.

CHECK your answers after you race!

You can check all your answers at the end and check any mistakes you may have made too. Great for EXTRA SIGHT WORD PRACTICE.
