How I Use It
I use this app and the Starfall ABC's app. while I introduce Kindergartners to their classroom iPod touch set, they can navigate through it and it keeps them engaged, that is quite the endorsement. I also use the Starfall ABC's app. It is shocking how engaging these apps are, and are rock solid early reading activities.
My Take
This app has 15 engaging phonics activities. The app lets you hear, touch, read and eventually master sound-spelling through activities, movies, and songs. Kids discover the relationship between spoken and written language while having fun learning to read.
