Learning for a Wide Age Range

The Phonics: Fun on Farm app is one that has been created for kids ages two through seven, so it's covering a pretty wide range. The app was released earlier this year and was developed in cooperation by a number of educational specialists so that you know the approach and content is ideal for kids. The game uses a really cute premise and fun graphics to teach kids about spelling, reading, and tracing letters. They will be following along with Farmer Frank and all of his adorable little farm animals. It's a wonderful app to play along with younger kids and then as they get older they will be able to use it on their own.

Help Your Child Become a Reader

Learning how to read can be a very tough process for kids and although parents want to help they aren't always sure how to go about it in the best way. The Phonics: Fun on Farm app attempts to turn your child into a reader thanks to the games and reading adventures it offers. The idea is that the app lays down the foundations of reading so they start from the basics and work their way up. Kids are able to explore 12 games, all of which focus on reading skills. There are 100 sentences and captions, more than 250 decodable words, and sight words. The app uses a phonetic approach to reading with letter-sound relationships being examined.
