This is the Lite version for Funtastic Animal Flashcards
Funtastic Animal Flashcards brings you more than 140 animal flashcards with fun, illustrated text. The name of each animal is illustrated using specific characteristics of the animal to help children recognize the word. This app can be used to expand children’s vocabulary or to teach them animal-themed sight words. It can be used in different ways for children from several age groups, from toddlerhood, right through preschool and even up to early elementary school age.
Funtastic Animal Flashcards takes you on a photographic journey through seven categories of animals. It includes photos of commonly known animals as well as photos of some exotic animals in every category. The high quality photos are preceded by separate word cards, embellished with clever illustrations in an easily identifiable large print. Each word card is accompanied by a professional voice recording to help children learn the name of each animal with the correct pronunciation.
The app makes use of colorful visual as well as audio stimulation to help children remember the names of individual animals better. The illustrated word cards help children learn through association. Children enjoy spotting the identifying characteristics on the word cards.
This app can be used in a variety of settings:
•Parents can look at the app with their children and use the words and pictures to discuss the different animals and in so doing pique their interest in nature.
•Teachers can use the app in their classrooms as they present animal-based themes like ‘At the Zoo’. They can discuss animals from different groups and help their students to expand their vocabulary using the animal flashcards.
•The app can be used in the classroom or at home to reinforce sight word vocabulary in children who already have some reading skills.

What's New in Version 2.0
Added 3 facts to each animal.
The app is a lil boring for young ones. (Example: It reads the word Cat. (That's the only thing on the first slide.) when you slide it to see the facts about the cat it shows a picture of a real cat and the facts but it does NOT read the facts. That's the part I don't like. My daughter can't read so she has no clue what the facts say. It would be good for a kid who can read for themselves and learn about the facts of animals.
On a side note this is the 3rd time I've tried to write this review bc it makes you write a "nickname" and if the nickname is taken when you press send it'll delete everything you wrote and you have to start completely new by clicking write a review on the main page.
