My 4 year old loves this!

My four year old would rather play with a video game than sit down and do flash cards and such, so this has been a wonderful tool to concrete his phonics and small word recognition! Amazing! I will be buying the other apps from this company.

Pictures appear at top of screen but they are unrelated to the sounds that are put together. Child is limited to hearing isolated sounds that may or may not blend to produce the word being presented, ex /b/ /o/ /y/ does not sound out as "boy." I was going to purchase other components of this app but I am somewhat reluctant to spend even a few dollars on phonemic awareness activities that may not provide appropriate examples. Other parts of this app were okay for teaching blending sounds. By the way I am an ESL/ early childhood teacher.

    Not Bad

    While this app definitely captures mu daughters interest there are a few issus I have with it. They are trying to blend words that have welded sounds or vowel teams that make different sounds then the ones my preschooler would be learning. Plus some of the words are sight words and you cannot sound or blend them ... that's why they call them sight words....because you just need to see and memorize them. But that being said, this app did begin to show my daughter a strategy for beginning to read and as long as I was there to correct the other flaws in the system...it was a good teachable moment.
