100 Key words for preschool or kindergarten children to learn to read based on Early Reading Research at Warwick University
Learn the A to Z Alphabet.
Learning modality of I say, You say, I say combined with the physical interaction with the letters is designed to motivate, entertain, and engage.
The 100 words and Letters are all spoken by a child to help engage your child.
It's fun for children and adults to fling the Letter Kids all around the screen
Learn My Name is a silly, cute, & rewarding teaching tool for toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarteners. I made this game to help my daughter and son learn to spell their names and recognize them in print. The cute kids bounce around the screen and you can fling them into each other. When you touch them you will hear the letter they represent. Drag them to the floating letter to match them up & get them to dance. We have an ABCs mode to practice letters.
The Learn Words mode features 100 special key words, these words represent over 50% of the words found in both children's and adult literature. Based on the Early Reading Research work of Dr. Jonathan Solity & Janet Vousden At Warwick University these 100 words cover 61 phonic skills and enable children to read faster and in a more self directed fashion. Apps that feature the common C is for Cat and A is for Apple help with recognition of Cats and Apples however we don't feel that it helps them learn to read. These words help your child learn to read.
Our four year old son Elijah, who has been fighting cancer for over a year, is the voice in the game and will teach you letters and words. As a big brother we try to engage him in helping to teach his little sister Aliyah. In working with other kids trying out the app we have found they respond very well to learning from another child's voice.
Learn My Name features an all original music score written just for this app by gold record selling composer Jeff Sullivan. It's lovely music and designed to not drive parents crazy when they hear it a lot. We are parents too.
Adressed Feedback from comments, updated instructions above on how to edit the names, you can edit all 4 by clicking the yellow arrow to the right of the names.
5 Star - Perfect learning tool for kids!

What's New in Version 1.2
At the request of an Educator who works with down syndrome children I have added support for lowercase letters. Names can now have upper and lower case letters.
The ABCs mode has A-Z and a-z in it.
The Words mode now has the words in lower case.
We have added push notifications support.
Love that this app makes learning fun! Love the research that was done to include the 100 most common words! Kids DO like learning from kids. Great idea to use a kids voice!
Letters should turn sideways
Not only should the pronunciation be precise, the letters should remain upright on the page as children have enough problems distinguishing certain letters. I have lots of ideas on how you could make this program soooo much better. I do think you have a good concept that has the potential to be quite effective.
What a great app for kids
Worked wonderfully for my son who is learning to read. What a great idea!
