I use the app in speech therapy as either a reward, or to increase sound awareness. There is an option to hear letter SOUNDS or names of the alphabet letters. Be sure to look in settings to see how else you can customize the app.

Great for letter & word recognition


First Word Christmas is a great spelling and letter recognition app. We own multiple of their apps and have found them to be helpful in teaching our son seasonal and holiday vocabulary.

I love that this app is completely customizable. You can set how long of words you want to allow from 3 to 10 letters in length. You can customized how the child can allow letter to be placed... Correct letter left to right or allow placement in any order.

The only thing I felt was lacking, was in the animation after a word was complete. It spins and then their is some auditory sound. I think to make it more engaging, the animation could be a bit more relevant to the object... For example, with the word "dove"; the dove could fly across the screen and tweet. For that, I'm giving it 4 stars

Slow down speech option


Just need to give the option to slow down speech like all the other first words apps. Then you'll get 5 stars.
I have all the apps though, they're great my 3 year old loves them!
