The Dolch Word List is a list of words compiled by Edward Dolch, PhD that are considered the most frequently used English words. The list contains 220 words, divided into five levels, that can not be easily sounded out and should be learned by sight. The Dolch Word List is often used in educational activities to teach reading to young students. Typically, the teacher provides a list of words that is added to each week throughout the year and the school either provides or parents are instructed to make flashcards to work with their child on recognizing these words. Cryptobuddy Sight Words Helper for Teachers and Parents is designed to be used to mimic these flashcards. It is intended to be used by the parents working with their children, just as they would with the flashcards. Teachers can update the word list online as they are added to the list in class. Cryptobuddy Sight Words Helper also allows parents to flag words that are difficult for their child, create a custom list by entering their own words, and can play all five of the different levels of the original Dolch Word List.
