Multi-syllabic Word Party is an interactive app for helping children learn and/or strengthen their phonological awareness skills which are critical for learning and maintaining reading skills.
Developed by a certified Speech-Language Pathologist, each game features audio and visual reinforcement through use of an interactive pacing board and familiar child games.
The fun and engaging game style design and interface was made for children in Preschool through 3rd grade. Children, professionals, and parents get access to 200+ functional, high definition, real world images that range from 2 to 5 syllables in length.
Have fun playing!
Ratings and Reviews
I will start with the good. The app really is motivating to kids. It does he have the potential to be really be a fantastic resource, however I rarely use it because of a couple of issues. In some of the games(e.g. the outline game), after the child has touched the dots for the syllables one time, their turn is automatically over. Often kids need to repeat a word multiple times, before they get it right, and the app does not allow them to do that (unless there are settings somewhere that I have not found yet). Also, on the slicing game, the letters are too close together, and it's easy to slice the wrong segment (especially when one syllable is just the letter"i."
If these issues could be fixed, I would use it a ton!
I agree that it has potential!
I just wrote a goal for a student who omits syllables so I was excited to see this new app. I also wish for more settings that would allow me to turn off the "awesome", track correct responses, and individualize it a bit.
This app has a ton of potential and is much needed in the speech therapy world. I would love to see more customizable options such as choosing target words within each word set, randomizing the word list, picture cues or not, and turning on/off the reward messages. I love the different game options!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
