Let's Read

by Jared Makes

Free to Enable


Using Fry's list of 1,000 sight words, Let's Read teaches children how to read through fun interactions.

The game is easy to get started; just say, "Hey Alexa Let's Read", and Alexa will walk your child through getting the game started. Let's Read uses positive feedback to keep kids interested and coming back to play again and again. If you own a device with a screen, like the Echo Show, Alexa will display a flash card with the word and even display a count of the correct answers. This skill is an awesome addition to any classroom. I hope your child enjoys playing this game as much as I enjoyed working with my family building it!
