Tricky words are sight words: those words that cannot be easily decoded using synthetic phonetic rules. Use our interactive reading software to teach tricky/sight words; the software uses a combination of repetitive tasks with animation, music and graphics to ensure students have fun whilst learning at the same time.
NEW: we've added a new option which allows you to customize games from a library of over 300 words that includes high frequency words, sight words and Dolch words: you can create unique lists of words to play that suit your learners and lesson requirements.
Perfect for your interactive whiteboard (iwb) or computer(s) - explore space with Zara: our very own Wildenaut, find the tricky word / sight word challenges then complete the game by finding the Golden Trophy of Zara.
