App DescriptionA US Dept. of Education-funded study found target vocabulary improved up to 31 percent for children ages 3-7 who played this Parents' Choice Recommended app over a two-week period. Includes FOUR fun-filled games starring Martha, the talking dog from the popular PBS KIDS TV series MARTHA SPEAKS(TM).
Players pick a plate to match the right word and then have their dog lick it clean by moving each dog's tongue around with their finger. Eww! The game introduces these words: striped, nature, nautical, mauve, triangular, colorful, teal, round, square, rectangular, floral, superhero, checkerboard, diamonds, numbers, letters, crimson, instruments, vehicles, and astronauts.
In this self-leveling game, players listen for Martha's "Martha Says" command to get her doggie friends to sit, walk or run. The game introduces these words: pace, stroll, amble, dart, gallop, sprint, halt, freeze, and rest.
DOGGIE DRESS UP
Accessorize the Dog Party guests. Choose among four different dogs and a wide variety of accessories. Players can even take a portrait of their favorite pooch. Pictures are automatically saved to your Photos album (sunflower icon on iPhone). The game introduces these words: stylish, designer, style, fabulous, accessory, fashionable, and portrait.
Players take this balloon-popping quiz to reinforce and test their knowledge of the vocabulary words. See how many points you can score!
