Rated 5/5 and Recommended by, official advisor to the Tablets for Schools scheme.

Blackbeard's Alphabet is a great way for kids to learn the letters of the alphabet, alphabetical order, the phonic sound each letter makes and even how to write each letter!

The app is all about making your own alphabet. You can choose boring - I mean popular - words like apple or cat, or you can choose awesome words like anchor or cannon.
The choice is yours, but fear not - I'll let you know which words I think you should be choosing!

The app uses a phonic alphabet, so it's perfect for kids beginning to read.

Its funny, engaging and educational - what more could a young pirate ask for? |

I love Unit11 Apps they are educational and fun for the children. This amusing twist on the simple phonics alphabet app makes it stand out from the pack. The games help the learning as does the facility to practice writing the letters. Fantastic value once again.

My son enjoyed playing this game and I can see him developing his skills to write and recognise the letters. I recommend this app to all KS1 kids parents.
