Ratings and Reviews
Great app for beginning readers
I like nearly everything about this app - the option to turn on/off the card and blank sounds is great. The letter sounds all sound great, for example /b/ for b instead of /buh/ like you may hear on many other apps.
I agree with the previous commenter that the vowels should be in red and the consonants in blue. It's the standard that I'm used to seeing with print materials. Finally, I would promote this more broadly as a learn-to-read app rather than just spelling. This activity is highly receptive - you see the picture, see the letters, hear the sounds.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback. In some of the recent updates, the app has been updated to include the option for red vowels and blue consonants.
This app is really great! It follows the best teaching practices for helping young children learn the sounds and functions of the letters. It is like a talking alphabet that says the sounds of the letters instead of the names of the letters. Each letter says its sound when tapped. Each picture can be tapped to hear what it is, too. Fortunately, This app uses lowercase letters which are 20 times more common than uppercase letters in written print. This app is a very helpful and supportive tool for emerging readers. It can help your child become a better reader and a better speller.
great fun spelling and building CVC words
This app focuses on spelling and building 3-letter CVC words. In actuality word building increases reading skills. This app has a couple of choices where you can choose to build the word with either just the letters that are part of that word or from the entire alphabet.
