Howie Build Words Lite (Multi-User) is a fun game to improve your child's reading abilities and memorizing new words. Learning to build words by sounding them out adds to a strong foundation in reading for beginning readers. All of the app’s 80 words can be sounded out using common phonics rules grouped by Short Vowel, Long Vowel, Bossy R's and other Vowel Team words. In this game, your child will choose the beginning sound and rhyme to build a word. Each correctly built word will feed Howie a macaroon. He is very hungry, so try to build the correct words as many as you can!

Howie Build Words Lite (Multi-User) also includes a progress report for a parent and teacher. The report allows them to track their child’s performance in building the sound out words grouped by vowel sounds, and provides play history with game details (i.e, On this date, your child has played level 1 and level 2 and in each game, what item has been asked and what your child has answered). An additional setup option allows for a parent or teacher to customize the number of questions to match their child. We also include the options for self-correction (i.e, kids could correct their answer in the second try) and clearing out all the reports. This game will help your child improve their reading skills in a fun and interactive environment.

**Plus, this game allows multiple users, so parent or teacher can add more than one user (**In full version, you can add up to 30 users) to customize the level of difficulty and keep the progress report for individual child.

***In the full version, your child can learn more words (up to 1,110 words) and the setup option allows for a parent or teacher to control the level of word difficulty to match their child (i.e, CVC words are included in easy level, digraphs are in medium level and blends are in the difficult level)

Howie Build Words Lite (Multi-User) is divided into 5 total levels to help children practice words grouped by vowel sounds (i.e, Short Vowels, Long Vowels, Bossy R and other Vowel Teams). The final level will mix all the words together to challenge them. In each question, more incorrect beginning and rhyme sounds will be added to increase difficulty.

**All words have been recorded by professional voice talent.
