Cimo Can Spell
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This is a great app for beginning readers to learn words. Some of the apps 1,122 words can be sounded out using common phonics rules (i.e, grouped by short vowel, long vowel, Bossy R's and other vowel team words --968 words), and others do not follow those normal rules and must be memorized (i.e, beard, climb, flood, great, snow, world etc. --154 words). Learning to spell these words adds to a strong foundation in reading and spelling for beginning readers. This app also uses phonics to help your child learn new words by putting sounds together to make words (like /b/ /a/ /t/ bat). So your child will be able to read and write words correctly without memorizing. So your child would be able to spell words correctly without memorizing. In this game, your child will help Cimo the penguin reach an iceberg to catch fish. Each correct letter chosen adds a block to his bridge. Finish the word and Cimo can cross, but watch out for wrong letters, or Cimo will take a dip! This is the fun game to improve your child's spelling abilities.
Also included is a progress report for parents. The report allows them to track their child’s performance in spelling the sound out words, 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 control the level of word difficulty and customize the number of questions 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). **In this new version, we add 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.
This app is divided into 6 total levels to help children practice words grouped by vowel sounds (i.e, Short Vowels, Long Vowels, Bossy R and other Vowel Teams), with one additional level for Irregular Vowels. The final challenge level mixes all the words (that follow the basic rules of phonics) together and adds incorrect letter options to increase difficulty.
**All words have been recorded by professional voice talent.

Great for combination sounds
I use this with the sight word app in my small classes for higher level kids as a warm up activity. If your kid enjoyed the sight word app this one is the same but more difficult. From a parents perspective this app is difficult but not too difficult. If you offer a prize when they finish the app you will get amazing results.
