Teach young learners (ages 3-8) beginning letter sounds with this simple and clever matching system! Learning phonics is fun with your iPad!

Developed for your iPad, this easy game will teach and reinforce letter sounds and phonics skills. Game play is based on the popular pocket charts used in classrooms around the world. Beginning Letter Sounds requires 3-5 minutes for a young learner to complete, making this iPad app ideal for students with short attention spans or those requiring highly visual or tactile learning experiences. Additionally, the activities have been uniquely designed to lock and play only in the portrait mode to simplify game play and eliminate an orientation switch if young learners jostle the iPad while playing.

Good Neighbor Press has specialized in the development, illustration, design, and production of educational material since 1991. High quality, developmentally-appropriate educational material with clean, charming instructional design is our specialty.

I like the pocket chart apps but was disappointed that the beginning sounds are asked in abc order. It doesn't test beginning sound knowledge as much as letter recognition. I had hoped to use this app to test my kindergartners on beginning sounds.

Developer Response ,

This issue was resolved with an update. Game play can now be shuffled. The voice prompts reinforce each beginning letter sound. Thank you for using Pocket Charts! Beginning Letter Sounds. I hope you'll try it again.

Acorn or nut?

Some students may struggle with vocabulary. I thought maybe if the students click on the picture it would say what it is, but it doesn't. Only 26 pictures and then it repeats the same pictures. I wanted to buy all the other pocket charts but I won't buy it unless it gets more pictures. I agree that it is nice to have a simple app but it wouldn't be that hard to put a score at the end. I only see my students playing this once.

This issue was resolved with an update. Voice prompts are now included. If you would like a version that includes an interface that shows the progress of each student, and also includes all 22 of the Pocket Charts apps. Please look at Pocket Charts! Pro on the App Store. Thank you!

Eh ok

Strictly a matching game that goes in abc order. Not interactive at all. Could be much better. I agree is not worth $2!

Developer Response ,

Issues resolved with updates. Game play can be shuffled. It is interactive in that students choose, then manipulate the correct answers. This app emulates a classic classroom pocket chart and is manipulated in the same manner. App is not $1.99. It's usually free and sometimes $.99.
