Since 2007, students have played more than 4 million Samson's Classroom games. That means we are averaging about 250,000 games played per month. So what keeps students playing Samson's Classroom again and again? Well, there are a lot of reading and spelling programs out there, but none of them take our approach of combining sight words, spelling, and reading into one program that is actually fun for kids to use. Our online sight words, spelling and reading games, engage students in a way that allows them to have fun without even realizing that they are learning.
What exactly are sight words? They are the most commonly used words in the English language. Over 50% of words that you read every day are sight words. Kids must learn to read these words just by seeing them, as many of them cannot easily be sounded out. Our list is based on the Dolch sight words list, which was originally created by Edward William Dolch in 1948. He documented the 220 most important "service words" that children need to recognize in order to achieve reading fluency.
Our sight words are broken down into 28 lists which are divided into four different levels. The word list not only contains kindergarten and first grade sight words, it also has sight words for students in second through fifth grade as well. The kindergarten sight words in level one start off with the simplest and most common words found in the English language, like "the", "and", "is" and "me". When you work up to level four, you will find more complex, multi-syllable words that deal with silent letters and more difficult word rules.
