Train Phonics CVC

By Joe Scrivens

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Practice CVC words using phonetics.

Over 100 CVC words in this app. A train comes into the station and you hear a word, press the train at any time to repeat the word.

Your task is to drag the correct consonant and vowel tiles into the carriages of the train in the correct order. As you press the tiles you will hear the phonetic sound of the letter.

Unlike other apps in the app store that are labelled as phonics, this one actually uses phonetic sounds and not the alphabet sounds.

A great way to practice creating consonant vowel consonant words.

Watch this video to see the how the sound and interaction in the app works:

NOTE: There is currently a bug in the adobe packager for apps which generates metadata that says this app supports multiple languages. It is only supported in English.

Customer Reviews

Overall very pleased

My son loves trains so this is perfect for him. One of his favorite things to do is make the train repeat the word, over and over and over again. He also likes to touch each letter repeatedly to hear the sound each letter says. He has known his letters and sounds for a while now and he still finds this engaging.

That said, I'd like to see two changes. First, could the engine say the word and the individual cars say the sound? We talk about isolating the sounds of CVC words. For example, "What is the first sound you hear?" I think it would be nice to have a way for the player to check it out.

Engine: cat
1st car: /k/
2nd car: /a/
3rd car: /t/

Secondly, could a picture of the word ride the train? Unless you are using nonsense syllables, I think a visual of the word would be a lovely addition to the app.

Overall, I am very pleased with this app. A few changes would make it spectacular.
