This is a vowel game to improve your child's reading and writing skills. Learning vowels helps your child to distinguish distinct words such as fan fin fine fun, and recognize those words easily. This app is useful not only for reading but spelling and writing also. It 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. All of the app’s 1,110 words can be sounded out using common phonics rules grouped by Short Vowel, Long Vowel, Bossy R's and other Vowel Team words. In this game, your child will find the missing vowel in the word. Each correct word will feed Howie a hotdog. He is very hungry, so try to find as many correct vowels as you can!
Also included is a progress report for parents. The report allows them to track their child’s performance grouped by vowel sounds, and provides play history with game details (i.e, On this date, your child played level 1 and level 2 and in each game, what item was asked and what your child 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 and writing skills in a fun and interactive environment.
This app is divided into 5 total levels to help children practice words grouped by vowel sounds (i.e, Short Vowels, Long Vowels, Bossy R and other Vowel Teams). The final level will mix all the vowels together to challenge them. In each question, more incorrect vowels will be added to increase difficulty.
**All words have been recorded by professional voice talent.

Great help with phonics!
My 4 year old loves this! He loves the sound the monster or creature makes when he eats the hotdog. He has a hard time remembering sounds on his own and this helps a lot since it only works with the same five letters each time (a,e,i,o,u).
My students love this app! My one complaint is that there doesn't seem to be a way to track multiple students at one time. I wish there was a way to set up names in the game so students did not have to start all over or continue someone else's game.
