Forest Phonics is a spelling game. Choose a spelling pattern and you will be prompted to spell ten words using that spelling pattern, e.g. 'ay' words. Your child will become more confident in their ability to spell by learning to spell through patterns. The sounds are easy to move around using the drag and drop sound cards. Each correct answer is rewarded with a funny animation. If you need help you can hear the word again or take a quick peek at how to correctly spell the word. A simple scoring system lets you know how well you've done. The game covers 30 spelling patterns suitable for children between the ages of 4 and 7 years of age.
All 350 of the words have been re-recorded to improve clarity, with each word used in a sentence, in context.
Minor bug fixes and a new celebration animation.
Ratings and Reviews
A really good app. I have used the iwb version with my class and now the ipad for a support group. It would be good if the app had more sounds and spelling patterns or that some of the words were more fine tuned as they can sometimes cause confusion..... But still a valuable tool.
What happened to the volume?
I love this app but since the last update the volume is barely audible, been waiting for that to be fixed bit it's never happened!
We are already a fan of the educational games on the creator's website and so I downloaded this app for my 5 year old son. He sat with the iPad listening carefully to the words, segmenting these and choosing the appropriate sounds. He roared with laughter when the monkey and turtle came on the screen to 'congratulate' him and reward his success! I love this app so much I have recommended it to my fellow teachers to use in school.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
