We are pleased to announce that we made the Top 10 list for Phonics apps at Smart Apps for Android! Our app, I Can Alphabetics (now just Alphabetics) is 2nd on the list.
Learning letters and the sounds of letters are foundational skills to being able to read. Apps are a great resource for preschoolers as they can play with letters, and hear how they sound as they tap them. Learning through play is the best way for children to grasp a concept as they will be engaged for longer and be more likely to remember what they have learned. Here are the top 10 apps for learning and practicing phonics.
I Can Alphabetics
The Lite version of I Can Alphabetics comes with the sounds B, F, and M. These were probably chosen because /b/ and /m/ are some of the very first sounds made by babies (e.g. bababa and mamamama). Each letter sound is learnt in a multi-sensory way, including listening to the sound, writing the letter, identifying the letter amongst others, and saying the letter out loud. Once the letter sound is learnt, there is a revision assessment to check the child really understands that letter.
