Great for struggling kids!

I use this with my students who are struggling with letter/sound association as well as understanding word boundaries- it's great!

I paid full price and got the letters/numbers from Tiggly to make it multi-sensory and more meaningful for my kiddos.

Can't wait for Tiggly Words!!!

Love the new Submarine app added to the Tiggly family of apps. As a mother of two (infant and toddler), I love the fact that I can allow my child to play with my iPad without constant supervision and the knowledge that she’s engaged and learning. As a teacher, I loved using the Tiggly apps at first as a reward system and have recently started using the apps for my struggling tactile learners in small groups. The new Submarine app is so much fun that my daughter and I both didn’t realize she was learning her vowels and sight words. The characters are cute as always and the ocean setting is vivid and opens up the child’s aquatic imagination (I can’t wait until the Tiggly Words come out, the Tiggly manipulatives add a wonderful “hands-on” component that teachers always look for). The learning aspect of the app is also quite good, there is a bit of drilling and repetition that the kids don’t realize because it’s skillfully covered in play. I do believe that it will give my child a heads up in phonic awareness for preschool and give my students a solid phonic foundation and repetition they need through fun.

Disappointing---doesn't work!

My 5 year daughter was so excited when she finally received the Tiggly Words & Math for Christmas. We finally set down to play & the stupid app doesn't recognize the toy pieces. I now have a child in tears because without use of the pieces the apps are not vey original. This was a total waste of money & a complete disappointment. Save your money!
