ENGAGEMENT Kids are empowered when they listen to differences among letter sounds, piece these together to sound out words, and build their own library of sight words. The pre-recorded audio playback gives kids independence to explore words. PEDAGOGY This powerful tool allows kids to learn consonants and long and short vowel sounds as well as letter combination sounds and word parts. The app lacks some basics for beginning readers, but it presents phonemic awareness in an engaging way. SUPPORT The interface is clean with clear controls. It's very customizable and allows adults to create individual flashcards or sets of flashcards, with personal audio playback.-Kim A.

I love how there are many pronunciations and a speaker. The bad thing is every time I play a record of my voice, the speaker's volume is smaller

Earning Points For Play Would Help hold the interest of my 6 year old son. The content is spot on (5 Stars)and there could be loads of learning going on here if my son were even just a little more engaged by earning something! Haha! Anything —Stars, points, cash to by some virtual something...he like to win things. While great content the game application of finding the right word of six words just drones on with the words, great, perfect or good job. Cool sounds would also add to raising the engagement factor as well. Great app just need some swagger to engage a savvy audience!! Engagement score (1 Star) combined with content score (5 stars) to come up with a total rating of 3

Good but needs improvements It’s very helpful. However, the words change by touching the screen. This limits us to cover and teach the kids letter by letter. The words accidentally change by a gentle screen touch. It’s very annoying and limits all the good things about this app. Adding one option to change the words by screen sliding than touching will greatly help.
