Description

Kids and adults are becoming great at reading, spelling, writing, and handwriting with the EBLI Reading Adventure Apps!
EBLI’s 3rd App, Sight Words Made Easy, teaches students to accurately read and spell sight words (regular and irregular high frequency words) by sound and accurately read and use homophones. It is intended for those who have a general reading foundation and is a great segue for new readers who have already learned the basics from Reading Adventures with Booker Series, #1 EBLI Island and #2 EBLI Space.

While containing the exceptional quality of EBLI’s previous apps, Sight Words Made Easy is more advanced and contains EBLI instruction for learners of all ages (up to adults). The information, skills, and concepts taught teach irregular and regular words by sound. Instruction benefits readers of every age and level by improving their word reading accuracy, providing advanced phonics knowledge, and improving reading speed and comprehension.

EBLI’s multi-sensory instruction through learning activities and games will greatly accelerate the learner’s acquisition of reading, improve handwriting, and decrease the habit of guessing sight words when reading in text.

The App has introductory activities to the EBLI concepts:
• Up to 4 letters can spell a sound

There are two main activities: Sight Words and Homophones
