(Sight words are commonly used words that children are encouraged to memorize as a whole by sight, so that they can automatically recognize these words when they see them without having to use any distracting strategies. Sight words account for a large percentage of the words used in literature for children. One advantage for children being able to recognize sight words automatically is that the child will be able to identify the majority of words in a book before they even attempt to read it. When the child is able to do that they’ll be able to concentrate on the meaning and comprehension as they read without having to stop to figure out the actual word.)

It’s a great tool for keeping up with how much you’ve been saving, and it can be emptied if you decide to empty your piggy bank.

In LEARN mode, you can learn about how much each coin is worth, how they look on the front and back, and various other information.

The questions can be simply asking you to tap on a specific coin or even figuring how many coins it takes to equal a certain value.
