Abitalk Phonics Short Vowels is a fun game for young children to learn and practice phonics by piloting a submarine and shooting torpedos to identify each word.

PhonicsOne is for children just beginning to read. The words all have short vowel sounds. More advanced children should try PhonicsTwo, or PhonicsThree, with long vowel sounds and double vowels.

PhonicsOne is a Universal App, so it works with both iPhone and iPad.

This game provides many hours of enjoyment. Children are challenged to win "jewels" for successful completion of each level. After collecting enough jewels, they are rewarded with a bonus mini-game, allowing them to create sparkles on the screen, play "make-a-word" game, and a jumping mouse game.

Your child will be so involved in achieving each goal, that they won't realize how much they are learning.

By identifying words, this game helps children recognize common word patterns, and understand how the initial consonant, middle vowels, and ending consonant affect pronunciation.  These are all important stepping stones to becoming a proficient reader.

This game is is like having a private tutor to teach your child one on one.

We also have a paid version, PhonicsOne, which provide more content and words.
