Description

Your children will love this game and also achieve the first critical skill in learning to read. A child’s conscious sensitivity to the spoken structure of language and how this maps into letters and written language is a critical necessary stage in learning to read and becoming a skilled reader. This game reinforces this learning in a fun and engaging matching game.

This fun matching game is played like other matching games. Touch one of the games to play, and a set of tiles will appear. The goal is to match the different types of tiles, and move through more and more challenging levels. Enjoy watching your children become familiar with the sounds of English and the letters that spell those sounds.

The game reinforces reading readiness and reading skill for pre-school, kindergarten, and early elementary school children. The multi-sensory experience with animations, speech, images and written words engages the kids in a fun activity while simultaneously sharpening their language and reading skill.

Baldi is a 3D animated character who can speak with extraordinarily accurate mouth and face movements and convincing emotions. Baldi has been around for several decades in research, tutoring deaf and hard of hearing children, serving as a language teacher for autistic kids, and instructing children and adults in learning how to speak new languages.

You can control the rate and loudness of Baldi’s speech, his emotion, and facial and disk cues to make the task easier or more difficult.

-To change Baldi and his speech, touch the Settings button.

-In the Settings view, you can change the audio volume and the speaking rate.

-You can show Baldi in a standard Outside View or an Inside View that shows the tongue and inside the mouth (this view is particularly valuable for this application on phonics).

-You can change Baldi’s emotions by varying the sliders for six basic emotions.

-You can change several emotions at the same time to give an emotion mixture.

-Once you make the changes, touch the back button and choose your game.

It's ok...

:
This app. is ok- good if your child/student is just starting with the sounds but after that it's just busy work. It would be great if you could select each of the sounds to demonstrate before the game. Also it would be great if you could select categories for play. For the price it's an ok game but it could be so much more!
