Description

Parents, are you searching for a fun and creative app to inspire your preschooler to learn the alphabet and phonics? Your kids will have loads of fun personalizing letters and turning them into crazy characters while they learn.

Created by a Mum/Teacher with Kindergarten and Preschool Teachers, this app teaches phonemic letter sounds, associating them with their letter form, names of letters and the meaning and pronunciation of new words starting with letters.

The game is playable in 5 languages: English (US & UK), Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese

The phonemic skills this game teaches are key skills preschoolers need to acquire based on the American Core Knowledge Preschool Sequence. The Preschool Sequence states “a crucial part of learning to read is developing phonemic awareness, the understanding that individual sounds are associated with individual letters”

HOW DOES THIS APP TEACH CHILDREN?

ABC Gurus appeals to a child’s innate desire to interact and create. Children colour in and personalize the letters repeatedly while listening to the phonemic sounds they make. This is incidental learning, one of the most powerful learning forms for preschoolers. By repeatedly playing with the letter, kids learn to associate the letter form with its sound through repetition and identify it as the first letter in a word.

HOW TO PLAY

Scroll through the alphabet on a rotating planet, choose a letter and get creative coloring it, adding cartoon eyes, a toothy mouth and quirky accessories. Each time you color and add features, you hear the phonemic sound the letter makes. Tap the play button and a word starting with the letter comes to life in a hilarious animation. Interact with the animation and discover what happens!

Take a snapshot of your creation and it’s saved in a separate album on your device’s photo gallery. Complete your album with your A-Z creations for further practice.
