Do you know your ABC's? With 2 fun and educational activities, Kumon Uppercase ABC's is designed to help your child learn to write uppercase letters and recognize the sound of each letter.
From Kumon, the world's largest supplemental learning provider and parent to Kumon Math & Reading Centers, the Uppercase ABC's app includes a Letter Tracing Activity (with our unique and simple method of tracing letters) and a Letter Sounds Game (match the written letter with its sound read aloud).
LEARNING TO WRITE LETTERS
The letter tracing activity helps your child master the uppercase alphabet. The Uppercase ABC's app features an innovative 3-step approach with interactive sights, sounds, and touch:
Stage 1: Inside an outline of the letter, your child traces each numbered stroke in the order shown, starting with the circle, along the dotted line, and ending at the star
Stage 2: The circle and star disappear, but the dotted line remains for your child to trace
Stage 3: The dotted line is removed, and your child writes the letter on their own within the outline
Choose from 3 modes: alphabetical, random, or Kumon. Using the unique Kumon method will show letters to your child in order of complexity. This innovative approach helps your child master the easier letters such as L and T first before moving on to more challenging letters with diagonal or curved lines.
REINFORCEMENT AND REWARDS
In Kumon Uppercase ABC's, each letter is paired with a delightful interactive illustration of a familiar word so children learn the basic phonics that lay the foundation for reading.
When the letter "D" is correctly traced, for example, the app will show a dog. The movable image is fun for your child to play with, but also reinforces the sound and use of the letter.
When your child successfully completes all of the letters, they will receive a special Certificate of Achievement. You can customize the certificate with their name and email it for printing.
MATCHING LETTERS WITH SOUNDS
In this activity, your child can practice matching the sound of each letter with its written symbol. The app asks aloud, "Touch the letter that makes the sound R" and your child chooses from 3 on-screen letters.
If the incorrect letter is tapped, the letter sound will repeat until the correct letter is chosen. When your child chooses the correct letter, its sound and name will be repeated to reinforce the knowledge before the next letter is shown.

Ratings and Reviews
Audio doesn't work. No sound at all
Audio doesn't work. No sound at all
The app is ok but a little too finicky. It often says that you are doing a letter wrong when you aren't. It would be much improved if the exactness was lightened up a bit for beginners or if the program said what you did wrong. My biggest complaint would be that the order of the lines do NOT MATCH WHAT KUMON TEACHES OR THEIR BOOKS! This should be fixed pronto. For example, the capital I is taught one line down, then top, then bottom at Kumon and in their books. The app teaches line across top first, then line down, then line across bottom. Please update soon! We would be infested in the next step in reading readiness too.
My 3 & 5 yr old Kids LOVE it!
We've had this app for several weeks now & both my kids keep asking for it. The 3 yr old is learning the sounds associated with each letter and won't stop tracing until he gets each letter correct. The app is also helping my 5 yr old with sounding out words. Kudos to Kumon for another great educational product!
