We're very pleased to announce that 'Jolly Phonics Letter Sounds' has been reviewed by the Educational App Store website and has been awarded their highest certification level of 5 stars!

You can read the full review here:
http://www.educationalappstore.com/app/jolly-phonics-letter-sounds

App Overview:
Start your child’s journey in reading and writing. Join Bee and her friends as they explore the enchanting letter-sounds garden and discover the main 42 letter sounds of English through a series of captivating games. This beautifully animated app enables your child to learn the letter sounds (including digraphs), letter formation, blending the sounds for reading and identifying letter sounds in words for spelling and writing. Together these skills give your child the best possible start as they learn to read and write.

Ideal for children aged 3+, the Jolly Phonics Letter Sounds app provides hours of educational enjoyment.

Jolly Phonics leads the teaching of phonics around the world. It is the most effective way to teach reading and writing, enabling children to achieve outstanding results at school and at home.

◆ Choice of American or British English audio and spelling (this can be toggled within the information page)
◆ Choice of print or precursive letters* (this can be toggled within the information page)
◆ Allows multiple and personalized profiles
◆ Activities for learning the main sounds in English. The children learn to:
▸ hear the letter sounds
▸ recognize the letter sounds
▸ see letter formation
▸ write the letters themselves
▸ blend sounds in words for reading
▸ identify sounds in words for spelling
◆ 7 bonus games to unlock
◆ Tested and loved by children
◆ Guidance for adults provided

Frequently asked questions
◆ Why is there no option to take a picture when creating a new plant pot?
You need to allow the app to use your device's camera. To do this first close the app, then access the Settings app and scroll down on the left-hand side and touch 'Jolly Phonics Letter Sounds'. You should see a switch to allow the app to access your device's camera. Switch this on, then open the Jolly Phonics Letter Sounds App again.

◆ I can't hear any sound. What can I do?
The app now detects if your device sound setting is on mute and displays a speaker button giving an option to override this. Volume controls on the device can then be adjusted as necessary. Headphones can be used at any time to hear sound in the app regardless of whether the device is muted or not.

◆ How do I unlock letter sound groups?
The app takes you through each letter sound one at a time. If you wish to unlock subsequent or all letter sound groups (e.g. for teaching purposes), then please read the information page in the app for details of the 'edit mode', accessible via an invisible button.

While this App works on iPhones and iPod Touches that meet the minimum requirements, it is best viewed on iPad devices due to the bigger screen size.

Please note that this app is only available in English but can be set to either American or British English. The app does not contain the Jolly Phonics Actions.

*Precursive letters have joining tails to assist with learning joined-up writing; print letters have no joining tails.
