Improve Your Child’s Reading Ability in a Snap!

A child that’s a visual learner will struggle with understanding language unless there are pictures or images involved, because they think in pictures.  What’s missing for a right-brained child is a visual representation of each word in their minds-eye.

If you could see inside your child’s mind as they learn vocabulary using SnapWords®, you would see the word superimposed over a visual image. Everything is captured together like a snapshot. SnapWords® is a comprehensive collection of sight words necessary to develop your child’s fundamental reading skills, combined with each term’s visual counterpart. This allows your child to recognize the words easily by sight.

Sight words are words that are difficult to sound out phonetically, and are therefore better understood visually. These words make up about 65 to 85 percent of any general text, which means they are essential for complete fluency and reading comprehension!

SnapWords® are unique because they are the only sight words flash cards that provide a complete image of what your child is actually seeing in his/her mind. They help to bridge the gap for a child who learns visually. Other flash cards that employ sight words either place the word and illustration side by side, or have no picture at all. And for a Right-Brained learner, a picture really is worth a thousand words!

How it all began:

SnapWords were designed by Sarah Major when she was teaching a group of kindergarteners They were bright kids, but they couldn’t learn and remember words. One day after sounding out “help” multiple times, Sarah was sad to find that no one remembered ever seeing the word before. In desperation she asked, “What does this word look like to you?” One little boy said, “It looks like someone raising his two arms and yelling “HELP!” And so SnapWords were born. Each word was designed with kid-feedback until the first 306 words were created and refined.



"My 5 year old daughter has motor skill delaysvisual processing issues and was diagnosed with ADHD all during her kindergarten year. She struggled to learn everything and most of it didn't stick. Her teacher met with me at the end of the third grading period and said based on her most recent evaluation, it would probably be best to retain her. While reading and researching any way I could to help her I came across your website. I worked with my daughter constantly over spring break using SNAPWORDS. By the end of spring break, she not only knew the 25 words she was required to know for kindergarten, but an additional 35!!!! I then purchased your addition and subtraction workbook to see how much I could improve her math skills. Again, wonderful progress. Her teacher just completed 4th quarter midterm testing. She called me personally to tell me that my daughter has made such amazing progress, she feel confident passing her and allowing her to move forward to first grade!! I couldn't be more satisfied with your product and I'm telling everyone about it; family, friends, her occupational therapist, teacher, other parents, groups on Facebook...EVERYONE. I can't thank you enough!

Thank you,
Danielle, Madelynn's mom"


"I love your SnapWords flash cards! My son who is a struggling learner is finally retaining and applying words learned by using these sight word flash cards. I've also seen GREAT success with my kindergarten students." Laurie. 

"Your SnapWords® flash cards have changed my daughter's life. She could not read anything before we started with them, now she can recognize and spell most of List A on her own and is working through List B now. Thank you!!!!"  Jessica 

“I ordered all of the SnapWords® flash cards and it's as if a light bulb has been turned on in my daughter’s head! Usually I just have to show her the side with the picture only once and she has it! It's as if her mind takes a snapshot of the picture!” Cindy
