We are working on our second year of Preschool here at home. My Princess really wants to learn to read. With her absolutely wonderful imagination, I know she is going to love books. So this year we are working on her sight words. She is quickly learning to read some basic words and is excited when she sees them in books and can read them. I think it is great when a company like Thinkfun offers an educational preschool game based on sight words.
About Zingo! Sight Words
Zingo, Sight Words is a fun and interactive word game that brings fast-paced excitement and learning to the classic game of Bingo. Players learn to quickly recognize and read sight words, which are words with spelling that is not always straightforward. Sight words are the most frequently used words in the English language and make up about 50-75% of all written material. Learning and mastering sight words is a key step in becoming a successful, fluent reader. The sight words used in this game have been specially selected by leading educators as the most fundamental for reading development.

Zingo! Sight Words Review
We have played Zingo! Sight Words twice now with our Princess. She loves it. She has won both times we played, and that really made her happy of course. You simply load up the Zingo! Sight Words container with all the sight words,not difficult but a bit time consuming. We asked our Princess a few times to be careful no to spill the words out.
Zingo! Sight Words is played like the traditional Bingo game, you match the words to the words on your card. Of course, we say all the words that are drawn out loud and have our Princess repeat the words. In this way we can reinforce the way the word looks and sounds in her mind. I feel that if we play this game enough with her she will be learning her sight words even more quickly than just during school time. It is a great addition to Preschool Homeschool.
We highly recommend it!
For grades PreK through Grade 1, Zingo! Sight Words is available on the Thinkfun website for only $19.99!
