There are 40 rounds of game play for Pre-Schoolers and 52 for Kindergarten.

**Swish the Fish will introduce the word at the start of the round and send fish swimming through the water, each showcasing 3 different sight words.
**Swish the Fish then encourages your child to tap on the fish with the nominated sight word for the round.
**For every correctly tapped word a star is awarded.
**At the end of the round the stars are tallied up.
**If your child correctly taps more than 10 fish in the round they are awarded a prize to add to their very own fish tank!
**If your child does not achieve the minimum no. of fish to pass the round the word is then repeated to build memory retention

What are Dolch sight words?

In 1948 Edward William Dolch, PHD, compiled a list of the most frequently used words in the English language. The list consists of 220 words and 95 nouns. Many of the words could not be “sounded out” and had to be learnt by “sight”. Sight words make up 50-70% of any general text.
