ACCM review

This review of Eggy 250 contains the following information:

The level to which the game was reviewed

None noted.

App description

This App presents a set of mini games, each practicing set sight words. In total the game presents 250 sight words for children to learn.

Reviewers comments

This App is designed to help children learn the 250 most commonly used sight words. Here there are a set of mini games, with each activity designed to practice word recognition and sight word memory. Some games are quite repetitive, but user testing revealed that parents valued the close link to curriculum and the repeated practice of skills. The only risk is that some students will enjoy making mistakes with the incorrect response being a “splat” on the screen that some children found quite funny.
