Abstract

Sight words are words that are usually very familiar and readers have read the words accurately previously. A strong sight word vocabulary is important because children can read the words from their memory automatically and accurately. This study focused on the performances of children with reading difficulties in sight word reading who are 5 years old. Sixteen children were divided randomly into intervention group (n=8) and control group (n=8). Intervention group received intervention with the use of Read For Fun mobile application. Mann-Whitney U test was used to analyse the data collected to compare the performances of two groups in sight word reading. It showed that participants in the intervention group improved after the intervention was completed. Therefore, mobile devices are effective to children in learning sight words to improve their literacy and reading.
