The Froggy match-it app is a fun educational learning game teaching 5 & 6 years old's reading and spelling using the popular 'phonics' method taught in most UK schools.
T who's 4 1/2 has been learning phonics at nursery for a few months now and we've started reading the very basic books, I'm pretty sure that he's going to be a little bookworm like I was, I thought that this app would be perfect to work alongside this and discussed with nursery who agreed that he would really benefit from it. With it being on the tablet too, makes it a little more desirable to him as I don't think he's even realized that he's learning!
I did have to keep an eye on him whilst using the app, as he soon realized that if he just kept trying to put the word over the picture, he'd get there eventually ;)
So... I made sure I sat with him and we sounded out the words together before he added them, this way I could make sure that he had actually worked it out correctly and not just guessed, yes, I've got a very crafty 4 year old!
It wasn't long before he was starting to recognize the difference between 'do' and 'di' and starting to go beyond the first letter of the word.
T really seems to be enjoying froggy match-it and although I do have to sit with him whilst he plays it's great that he can play this independently, parents with less inquisitive children may not have this problem as they may be happy to actually do it correctly, not try and work out a shortcut ;)
The intro level is available on the free app, and the full app is available for £3.99.
These fab writing sheets are also available to download from the website to continue off-device learning.
We are great fans of the froggy match-it app, it's such a great learning tool for foundation learning.
