Magnetic letters on a mobile device

If your fridge has the lovely plastic magnetic letters on it. It is likely you will be glad to see this app…. Wooords.

A very simple concept that will improve spelling and encourage children to experiment with words.

There are three sections to choose from classic being our family favourite. You have a target letter that must be used in every word.

The game will tell you how many words you make with the available letters. Then simply touch and move the 9 letters to make words. They also encourage the user to find compound words for extra points. Difficulty increases over the 60 levels and it is very addictive!

Great for reluctant spellers or those who need a bit more practice. It certainly makes you think!

High Frequency Words

My daughter is starting out with reading and the new Pedagogs app is fast becoming her favourite.

As a teacher, I think it is a fun way to teach initial reading skills.

The games are age appropriate and it develops word recognition skills. It gives opportunities for children to practice using high frequency words both in and out of context. Best of all it’s free to download.

As a mummy, I know my daughter is learning without realising it. She is engaged and we don’t have any arguments about going over the her words.

The Pedagog’s have been selling posters, stickers and other rewards for years. Their characters are engaging and brighten up any room. I’m so glad they have branched out in this direction.
