ABC-Clamp Monkey is a fun word-building game for kids (and adults!).
Practice the alphabet by constructing letters from shapes on a workbench.
Words are selected from the Dolch list, a collection of 220 words that must be easily recognized in order to achieve reading fluency in English
Choose word lengths from single letters to five letter words.
My kids seem to think this is a game!
This app has been entertaining both my kids (ages 5 and 7) while they identify letter forms and words! I like that they can select single letters or up to 5 letter words. Comes in handy with both my kids, since they're at different reading levels. The graphics, audio and touch interaction are all very engaging. I would recommend this app to all parents with kids learning to read. A very clever educational game!
Great but needs fixes
I love this app and my son could play it forever. But I keep taking it off my iPad for a few reasons. First, it doesn't say the word after it is completed, or before. So it really doesn't help learn sight words (though does help with letters). Second, whenever I pick certain word settings (2-3 letter words or letters) it doesn't do it. I still get 5 and 6 letter words.
My son likes constructing the letters and learned his lower case letters from this app. Also good motor skill practice and spatial recognition.
Mom and teacher
As a mom and an elementary teacher I really like that this app had the kids build the word, showing the fundamentals of the letters. I also like that it says the letter once you build it. I would give this app 5 stars if it said what the word is once its built! Once the point of using Dolch words if you don't tell the kids/users what the word is. Please fix so that my kids can learn the letters AND words!
