Product Description

Product Description

Zingo Sight Words

From the Manufacturer

Zingo! Sight Words brings young children the fun of the classic game of bingo while they learn to recognize sight words. Players learn to quickly read these important, commonly used words that don't always "sound out" easily, such as that and our. The interactive Zinger! machine lets your child slide the dispenser to release two word tiles, recognize and read the words, then see if the words match the squares on their word card. The first player to fill all the squares on their card with tiles is the winner.

Zingo Sight Words
Bingo-style game teaches basic sight-word recognition. View larger.

Bingo-Style Game Gives Beginning Readers a Boost

Players choose one of the six double-sided Zingo! cards and begin filling the squares as the Zingo! Zinger dispenses word tiles. Each card has nine word squares, and the player who matches the word to their card gets the tile. The first player to fill his or her card is the winner.

Graphic Cues Help Identify Common Words

The game's Zingo! cards use graphics to cue players to the meaning of the words before they are able to recognize and read them. An "x" marks the spot for "here," a downward arrow points "in," a speech bubble surrounds "said," and a little figure waves for "me." Other squares have colorful patterns of stripes, checks, and shapes to pair with the sight words, adding some pizzazz to these critical words for reading.

Easy enough for children to play by themselves

The Zinger! slider chooses the next tile to be played. The slider is built with large, easily grasped parts, so kids can operate it themselves while exercising their motor skills. Once children learn to play the game, it's simple enough for them to play together without an adult.

Helps Young Readers Learn Basic Words

Sight words are the most frequently used words in the English language, making up about 50 - 75 percent of all writing. Our daily information is filled with basic words that readers take for granted. Unlike other words, sight words often can't be "sounded out" phonetically and have to be learned through visual memory, which can be frustrating to kids. Learning and mastering sight words is an important step in becoming a successful, fluent reader. The sight words used in Zingo! Sight Words have been named by leading educators as the most fundamental for reading development.

What's in the Box

72 Zingo! sight words tiles, six double-sided Zingo! cards, Zingo! Zinger card dispenser, instructions, and learning guide.

When I read in the description that the game had 72 tiles, I assumed 72 different words; after all, it is marketed for children in pre-K to 1st grade. The description should mention that there are only 24 different words (three tiles per word).

The words included are as follows: AND, COME, FOR, HERE, MY, SAID, THE, THREE, WE, WHERE, ARE, HAVE, OUR, SHE, THERE, THEY, WENT, WHAT, WHO, ME, IN, TWO, NOW, WANT.

My child is just begining to read but finds sight word flashcards and other teaching tools boring. She LOVES the slider in the game and was able to identify words after the first time we played it! I highly recommend this for kids in preschool or kindergarden who know their letter sounds but are resistant to flashcards and the like.

Over the past couple of weeks we have been having fun learning and practicing sight words with this game. This momma, loves fun learning games. I am a firm believer that when we are having fun and enjoying whatever it may be, we are learning way more.

The dreaded sight words or should I say "Trick Words" Sight words are words you cannot sound out usually, so after teaching your child to sound the word family words out and they get a good rhythm going on, now we have to throw a wrench in it with these crazy words...lol! Teaching sight words may try to trip you up, as a teacher, but don't let them keep you down. Sight words, as you know are very important for children to learn, they make up over half of what we read, so you want your child to be strong and confident with these words, but it doesn't have to be boring and time consuming, make it fun with Zingo! Sight Words.

I have one struggling reader and one fluent reader and they both enjoy this game. My struggler, though I make sure to play this game mostly one on one to slow it down a bit, otherwise the fluent reader takes over and totally dominates the game, hence discouraging my struggler. So beware, we want to make sure to give a little competiveness, but when it comes to learning make sure it is relaxed and fun.

We have a lot of the ThinkFun games and we love every one of them, but the sight word Zingo! just might be my favorite. I home school my kids and my boys ages 6 and 4 love to play games...but don't love to read as much as my girl does. This game has been huge in helping both of them recognize sight words not only in the game but in reading their books as well. They are much more willing to read when they don't get frustrated over these words that don't "sound out" like other words. The game can be played together at both of their skill levels, so that makes it really nice. I also love that they can play it independently without my help and supervision when I need to be working with their older sister or taking care of the baby. I know that they are learning and having fun at the same time and as a mom, that is huge! I would recommend this game to anyone with a preschooler through second or third grade. Especially those that have a frustrated reader or two like myself!

It kept my son involved and is great for adhd kids. My son has been struggling with sight words and we have tried ipad apps, but the hands on really helps with attention span.

This is a game that can be played pretty cooperatively with younger children - there will be a "winner," but the winning can be shared by all. After a few rounds of Zingo Sight Words, my four year old got fast at recognizing the 24 words in this set. I just wish there were a couple of supplemental packs so we could play more words.

I was extremely disappointed. My son is in 1st grade and he's behind and struggling with reading and his sight words. I purchased this to help him along. He knows every one of these words, so how is it recommended up through 2nd grade when my kid (has some special needs) is in 1st and behind his peers? There need to be more tiles with more complex sight words. It was a waste of money.

While it's well made, it's a bit overpriced for what you receive. More boards and more tiles were needed.

I am a homeschooling mom and ordered this for my first grade son. He likes this game and could play it well enough to keep up with his third grade sister ( who also likes it ). It could have more words but I'll take it.We aLSO found some missing word tiles so i emailed the company, they sent a whole other bag of words out right away.
