First Grade Kids Word Play is a set of 250+ exercises using 250+ words to teach 5-7 year old kids phonics, spelling and reading. Images and spoken words help advance kids' learning. Kids learn to read as they play.
The games are -
* Word Search
Kids look for words for the pictures shown in a word grid. They can hear the word sound and see the spelling by tapping on any image, but, they have to memorize the letters in the word to find it.
* Sight Words
Kids match first and second grade level sight words in a memory game by tapping on cards.
Kids learn the sounds made by vowel-combinations and complex consonant-combinations within the context of a word.
Kids practice spelling 4, 5, and 6 letter words.
When we looked for apps to help teach our kids, we couldn't find any that were good. One was just information text for the kids to learn by rote. Another was multiple-choice tests - just press buttons. A third had 2 sound-tracks and 4 animations running all at the same time. How was a kid supposed to focus?
So, we designed and built them games - that teach in the way parents and teachers explain concepts, and engage in the way playing does.
