Palm Coast, FL - Sierra Vista Software has released Sight Words Buddy 1.0 for Windows. This free software offers multiple-choice exercises for K-3 students and adults learning how to read.

Reading is one of the most critical skills taught at school. It is virtually impossible for a person to live a productive life in our society without being functionally literate. An important goal in teaching young students to read is making sure they are completely fluent with Sight Words.

Sight Words (often called the Dolch Word List) are some of the most frequently used words in the English language. Sight Words Buddy for Windows is designed to provide children with easy and fun Sight Words exercises. The exercises are divided into several groups, according to target school grades: Pre-Primer, Primer, First Grade, Second Grade, and Third Grade.

When the exercise starts, the student will hear one of the Sight Words. The student's task is to click on the written representation of the word. If the student wishes to repeat the word, he or she can do so by clicking on the "speaker" picture. Both visual and auditory feedback are provided to indicate whether the response is correct. After the student provides the correct answer, the exercise moves to the next word.

To assist in evaluating student's performance, the results chart shows the number of right and wrong answers as well as the percentage of correct answers for each word.
