Top Ten Apps For Phonics (best educational Android apps for kids)


Learning letters and the sounds of letters are foundational skills to being able to read. Apps are a great resource for preschoolers as they can play with letters, and hear how they sound as they tap them. Learning through play is the best way for children to grasp a concept as they will be engaged for longer and be more likely to remember what they have learned. Here are the top 10 apps for learning and practicing phonics.

Alphabetics

The Lite version of I Can Alphabetics comes with the sounds B, F, and M. These were probably chosen because /b/ and /m/ are some of the very first sounds made by babies (e.g. bababa and mamamama). Each letter sound is learnt in a multi-sensory way, including listening to the sound, writing the letter, identifying the letter amongst others, and saying the letter out loud. Once the letter sound is learnt, there is a revision assessment to check the child really understands that letter.

Endless Alphabet

This is not just another alphabet app. Monsters scattered throughout the word cards of this app draw your child in to interact with the words. Letters of the word are scattered by a monster stampede and your child needs to put them back in order. As each letter is touched, it animates and makes the sound of the letter as it is dragged into place. Once the word is complete, a definition is given along with a short animation to demonstrate.
