Recommended for ages 5 and 6, Word Wall HD is an effective edutainment app to learn and practice early reading skills, words, and letters. Children learn by seeing, hearing, and constructing within lesson and practice areas for both letters and word families, plus four mini-games.
When learning letters and words, children drag the letter or word family entry to the bottom of the screen to begin. The letter(s) and word are spoken for your child to repeat, then a simple sentence and image is shown to reinforce. For word families, children lean the two letter word family first, then move onto creating and learning a handful of three letter words.
Each of the four games utilize different methods to creatively teach the same content. See and Find is a card game where children tap on cards to turn them over and must match the word on one card to the associated image on another. In Hide a Word, the child moves around a spotlight to locate a word. When found, the word and an image are displayed. Bubble Words is even more interactive, requiring children to drag floating letters to name what’s pictured, such as a sheep. Jigsaw Words is a simple jigsaw puzzle game similar to Bubble Words, except the letters contain parts of the image.
