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.
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.

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.

Two levels-One side of the game board is less competitive/Other Side more competitive.Read more ›
While it's well made, it's a bit overpriced for what you receive. More boards and more tiles were needed.
Even my four-year-old has enjoyed playing Zingo and has learned to recognize several new words! As for my Kindergartener, several of the words are the same as the ones on her sight words lists for school, so this game is directly benefiting her school work!
I was provided a copy of this game by the manufacturer in order to facilitate my honest review.

Very disappointed. The box says 72 tiles. However it only has 24 words which are repeated. Had I know this and perhaps read a similar review I would not have purchased it. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Michele Rothkin
This is a useful and fun game at the time in children's lives when they are just learning to read. We found there were added sight words the boys did not learn in kindergarten.Published 1 month ago by PNWgardener
My 4 year old loved this game. Having the "machine" kept him interested, and the visuals on the cards helped him remember the words. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kathryn Naughton

PERFECT! We bought the Zingo picture words game, and 4yo son loved it so much that we "graduated" to this. Perfect timing and he wants to sound out the words himself. Read morePublished 3 months ago by DA
