Howie Hungry Monster (Build Words)

Age Level: Ages 5-8
By Developer: PlaySmart-Kids

This app teaches young kids how to use the 5 vowels and the different sound combinations. It is a perfect mix of fun and learning for young kids.

Set up as a game with 5 different levels, each include 10 incomplete words, of which the child is asked to fill in the blank with a letter, or combination of letters. When the child touches any of the letter options they are sounded out for them, using the basic phonics rules. Letters sounds, blends, the CVC pattern and basic reading are all nicely covered. Once the child has put the right sets of letters together, the word gets turned into a delicious snack for Howie the Hungry Monster! The child is allowed to get a second try, should they want to, which allows them to improve their score in the game. It is a great app to set the foundation for any child learning to read and write!

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
