MeddleKidz Sight Word Scholar iOS:
Writing & Spelling Practice App



As my son began his reading journey, I noticed he frequently grappled with certain high-frequency words like many kids. Although English doesn’t always follow logical spelling rules, mastering these “sight words” is crucial for building a strong foundation in literacy. Traditional methods, like paper flashcards, were helpful, but they had their limitations due to their static nature.

That’s why I created Sight Word Scholar, a tablet app designed for emerging readers. This app offers an interactive canvas where children can trace sight words, reinforcing their memory and understanding of each irregular spelling. With Sight Word Scholar, there’s no need to worry about lost or worn-out flashcards. Your child can practice writing and memorization repeatedly, and mistakes can be easily corrected.
