Word Wagon - by Duck Duck Moose

Age Level: Ages 0–5, Ages 5-8

This app creates a fun learning experience, all the while teaching the reading and writing of everyday words. This all being assisted by a cute French mouse, named Mozzarella, and his bird buddy Coco.

The app teaches how to spell simple (and not so simple) words, while learning phonics, including more difficult combinations. There are 4 levels in all.

At the beginning level, one learns the name of the letters. The next level brings on the phonics, teaching the sound of each of these letters. At the third level, one learns to spell four letter words, and with the fourth level, up to six. These are all based on Common Core State Standards.

In the game-like experience, your child will not only learn, but have a fun playing a multitude of activities: collecting stickers and earning stars, playing hind-and-seek, dressing the characters and drawing pictures! The app includes 103 words in 7 different categories. That's a whole lot of bang for your two bucks!

Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Designed for children from the ages of 2-7.
