If you are looking for app that teaches functional vocabulary skills this is it! Everyday Words takes twelve situations from the user’s everyday life (garden, party, kitchen, grocery, bedroom, bathroom, breakfast, classroom, playground, park, street, and clothing shop) and teaches fifteen different vocabulary words from that setting. The app has two modes: learn and play. In the learn mode, the user is placed in the everyday situation and there are question marks on fifteen different objects in the setting. The user touches a question mark and a flashcard pops open that says the name of the object, shows the word and the picture. Users that choose the play mode are asked to choose an everyday situation and then are asked to find a specific object. If they pick the wrong object they encouraged to try again. When they find the correct object they are presented with lively music or applause and some words of praise in the written and verbal format.

The images used in the app are colourful and realistic representations of real objects. Professional narration in a lively and encouraging format keeps the users interested and wanting to be successful. Navigation is simple and easy to follow. It is a good quality app.
What I Like About This App
  • Brightly colored images and lively music
  • Choice of functional vocabulary words
  • Simple user interface


What I Would Like To See Added In Future Updates
  • Continue to add additional everyday scenes to the app
  • A name change because in the educational community the word “sight words” are reserved for specifics lists of words that the reader must recognize immediately. The app teaches functional vocabulary not sight words.

Is This App Appropriate For Students with Special Needs
This is a great app for students with special needs. Especially those students that are mentally handicapped or autistic. It can be used to enhance vocabulary development and functional reading development.
