This app was created by a reading specialist teacher that wanted to make sure that kids start out on a solid foundation of reading with the five components of effective reading instruction which are: phonics, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. This app focuses on phonics and phonemic awareness.
★ First interactive reading app for kids that lets them read perfectly.
★ Common word families, related words with their pictures and kid friendly user interface.
★ A simple tap and get word games for kids.
The Word Families app by MY BACKPACK, allows kids to learn reading accurately, rapidly, and with comprehension.Based on the five essential components for effective reading: phonemic awareness (word families), phonics (blends), fluency, vocabulary and comprehension, the app provides a good learning experience for the children.
Who Can Use this App:
This is a perfect learning app for kids between the age of 2 – 8. The app can be considered a kindergarten app.
How it Works:
★ Kids find the correct beginning sound to match the picture with the word family and then tap the right letter to spell the correct word that corresponds with the picture.
★ When the correct letter is chosen, the app makes a clapping sound and repeats the word for kids.
★ Now, the app goes through all the pictures for the word family and returns all related pictures for that word family. Here, the kids will find a great informal assessment for their reading development.
★ After completing all these activities, the app goes to the next word family.
