Endless Reader

These words often have unusual spelling and cannot be sounded out using phonetics, and kids must be able to recognize sight words in order to learn to read. Endless Reader has interactive word puzzles that teach the sight words, along with animated animals that come alive when the puzzle is worked out correctly.
