Designed by a former early childhood education teacher, Alphabet Blizzard is 3 great educational games in one, for beginning readers and spellers ages 2-6. Learn letters and popular site words with help from colorful and animated members of the the Plow Family. As featured in the popular children’s book series, The Plow Family Adventures, these lovable snow plows make it fun for your child to learn.
The first game guides your child to recognize the letters of the alphabet by name and by sound. After the letter is announced, the snow plow appears and can be dragged towards the correct letter. You can choose whether the letter name or sound is announced. After playing through 13 or all 26 letters, a report is displayed suggesting which letters you can practice more.
This game announces one of several popular site words and helps your child identify the word. Two words are displayed at a time, and you drag the snow plow through a pile of snowballs toward the correct word. Again, a report is displayed suggesting which words you can practice.
This game incorporates actual pages from the popular The Plow Family Adventures stories. Slightly more challenging, your child helps find missing letters in the words of the page to complete the story. This game features beautiful illustrations from The Plow Family Adventures series titles “Welcome to Plow Town” and “Doing a Great Job”.
Ratings and Reviews
My five year old is simply addicted to this game. From the moment we downloaded it, she has not stopped asking to play this game. She loves trying to beat the clock, plow all the snow, and of course, get the correct answer. The word game is a little advanced for her (pre school child) but its a great way for her to start learning words vs being able to master the letters. It's a great app for her to feel success when doing the letter games and to work hard with the word games, great balance!
My little one's new favorite! She loves the voice over, the snow flake collection and she has already learned so much from it. A hidden gem on the iTunes store. This proves not all great apps have Disney and Sesame in their name! Apparently based on a book series? We will be looking into it!
Great learning game!
My kids really enjoyed these games; it made learning fun, and I was impressed at how quickly our younger child was recognizing the sight words and missing letters from the story. Two thumbs up, and if I had three, I'd give it one more!
