Good for emergent readers

I am an early childhood teacher, and have had a lot of fun and success using this app with 4 and 5 year olds (native English speakers). It is a playful, intuitive and simple way for kids to explore various phoneme sounds. I recommend the AGO phonics playing cards that this app is based around as well.
