Little Bats

By Lavelle Carlson

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Little Bats was developed as a parent's version of the soon to be released Bats in the Cave. This app for Pre-K through elementary teaches consonant-vowel-consonant syllables with long vowel with silent "e". Little Bats is the Reading Level 2 - following the Level 1 Fat Cat App (consonant-vowel-consonant with short vowel). Little Bats is based on research using manipulation of letters when there is only one sound change from one word to the next word; i.e. mate to late, etc. Little Bats also has a review from reading level 1, Fat Cat App in the last group of words. An example of alternating the short and long vowels for added practice is: fat - fate - mate - mat.

Little Bats is excellent for:
Home schoolers
Speech-language pathologists
Reading teachers
Regular education teachers

Little Bats has two play speeds which can be adjusted by just touching either "slower" or "faster" on the screen during play.

Parents have access to the same free materials and information as teachers. Visit and click on the Downloads page.

Skills addressed are:
Articulation (through auditory bombardment of sounds)
Phonemic Awareness
Left-right-visual tracking

Little Bats was designed to be used independently by young children. Therefore, there are no links to external sites. Please contact us at for information regarding the app.

iHeartThisApp says Little Bats "layout and controls are simple and intuitive enough that the target users can use it by themselves" with a "narrator with a clear voice and pronunciation." Furthermore, iHeartThisApp states it "will definitely be helpful for children from pre-kindergarten through elementary to learn about words".
