App DescriptionRecently my little daughter (4 years) was interested in the ABC. So I considered how to teach her the alphabet best. The result is this collection of 6 exercises:
1. FLASHCARDS [ LITE version: A - D only! ]
The first part introduces the individual letters of the alphabet from A to E. The letter name can be heard by touching it and it can be traced. An animal illustration might help to name the letter.
2. PRACTICE [ LITE version: A - D only! ]
After capitals were exercised in the first step, small letters are displayed here in addition. Choose 1 of 5 (one of five) different fonts. Learn upper and lower case letters.
3. WRITE [ LITE version: A - D only! ]
Write freehand in 6 colors and/or drag the previously learned letters similar to a magnetic board on the sheet. Mistakes can be corrected with an eraser - unnecessary letters can be pulled to the side to remove them. The final "message" can be photographed.
4. WORDS [ FULL version only! ]
In this exercise you can write the names of 65 animals. All letters of the animal names are mixed up and must be restored to the correct order.
5. ASSIGN [ FULL version only! ]
This exercise consists of two small activities:
• Practice which capital letter belongs to which small character - or vice versa. It all works like a jigsaw puzzle. By touching the letters their names can be heard. I think this supports to establish a connection between capital & small letters.
• In the second one, the correct sequence of the alphabet can be learned. On the top animals from ALLIGATOR to ZEBRA are lined up side by side. These include free boxes in which the initials must be sorted.
6. PAIRS [ LITE version: A - D only! ]
This exercise is a simple memo game with 3 game types. The pairs consist of uppercase &
(a.) uppercase ["A" + "A"]
(b.) Beast image ["A" + "Alligator"]
(c.) lowercase ["A" + "a"]
✔ This app is multilingual(english, german, italian, spanish, french and swedish). The languages can be changed in almost each activity. So your child will learn that "A" is for ALLIGATOR in english for AFFE in german or ABEILLE in french.
✔ Switch between "Initial Sounds" and "Letter names"
✔ Switch Font from Print Type to Handwriting
✔ Switch from Lower to Upper Case
✔ Choose one of 5 different fonts
✔ Reward System
✔ Settings as well as links are protected. This prevents that your child accidentally ends up where it should not.
✔ The "playing time" can be set.
✔ The sound can be switched on & off at any time.
✔ There are NO ADS & NO IN-APP-PURCHASES in this app.
This app was developed WITHOUT help of educators! Dear friends have assisted in putting sound to this app and not professional speakers. Also this app has no certificates.
I hope that this small ABC app is interesting to you and it simplifis your child getting started in the world of letters. Please have a look at the free Lite version before purchasing this app. :o)
