  • The app provides structure and support for learning.
Please Consider
  • There are 4 apps in the series and each one must be purchased separately.
  • Each app progresses on from the previous app so the developers recommend working through the apps in a sequence.
Generalise Skills and Knowledge
  • Engage in lots of book-sharing with your child to expose them to the conventions of print.
  • The skills in the app such as identifying rhyming words, or listening to sounds in words can be played in fun games outside of the app.
  • Talk about words and sounds in everyday print such as sounding out words you see in the community.
  • Try creating a personalised sound book by using a scrapbook and making a page for each sound by sticking in pictures from magazines or photos.
