Ratings and Reviews
First letters and phonics
This app is great for those just learning their letters. The alphabet song plays as it shows each letter, encouraging letter recognition during the song. The game involves matching identical letters and then provides a word that starts with that letter. In the settings, you are able to change the game to match just lowercase letters, just uppercase letters, or lowercase letters to uppercase letters. You can also set it so it says the letter name or the letter sound. Perfect for the young children, it keeps it simple, but allows for growth development as they are learning their letters. The only change I would like to see would be for the option to hear both the letter name and letter sound during the game.
My 3 yr old really enjoys this app! He already loves the alphabet song and when this app contained this song, it brought a big smile to his face. He has played it over and over again. He really seemed to enjoy matching the letters and hearing the different sounds of the animals and such. As a parent, I love the illustrations, they are bright and colorful. I think learning the letters by matching them is a great idea, lots of reinforcement and recognition. Great educational feature. I also love all the options that are available on this app. This app will grow with my child. Great quality app and would highly recommend it..
Customizable to fit your students needs!
Wow! I love how you can customize this app to fit your students needs. I would recomend this to teachers and parents with young children learning their letters (both uppercase and lowercase) and sounds that the letters make!! I also love the option where you have blank tiles and the child has to tap on them to find the matches...This will really help my higher level preschoolers!!!
