PLD's Literacy app Spell Star 1A: CVC Words is the first in the four-game series from PLD Literacy & Learning.

Developed for 5-6 year olds by Australian speech pathologist Diana Rigg, this fun game teaches the spelling of CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) words like mat, dog and sit.

This game gives young spellers a chance to rehearse their single word spelling skills. Your child (or student) will also gain familiarity with phonic sounds (instead of letter names) and as their confidence grows, they'll progress through the app's game interface, learning slightly more challenging words!

While playing Spell Star, children will also get practice with sounding out words, which is a key foundation skill for strong reading and spelling skills later on.

Truly terrible

This could have been good, but the awkwardness of the controls make it extremely frustrating. The figure you control a kind of dinosaur bird moves clumsily and you end up hitting the wrong letter and failing. There is also a fire breathing dragon/dinosaur that shoots fireballs at you, which only makes the game harder. My daughter, who has a language delay has played this a few times and only got 3 words in before hitting the wrong letters and having to start again. This is a fail, Ms Rigg!
