“Flashcards to introduce letters & phonic sounds”
This app is simply flashcards that introduce the letters of the alphabet and their corresponding sounds. Each letter has a corresponding cartoon animal. A double tap flips the card over for letter tracing.
“Double-duty flash cards for early reading and writing ”
When each card is on-screen, a narrator says the letter and the name of the animal on the card. At first, it seems like just another set of ordinary alphabet flash cards with fun, kid-friendly animals, but a double-tap of the card flips it over to reveal penmanship practice. Kids also get to hear the letter's phonetic sounds.
26 flashcards, each with an upper and lowercase letter, and a cartoon animal. Limited appeal.
Play 'I Spy' with beginning letter sounds.
Have your child tell you other animals or words that begin with the cue letters. have your child repeat the phonetic sounds aloud. Away from the app, practice letter writing/tracing on paper. Select objects from their world and have your child tell you what letter the object it starts with.
Write out the name of the animal (something the app doesn't do), then write the names of some other common objects that start with the same letter (good luck with X, though).
