If you love Endless Alphabet and Bud's Rhyming Words then you are going to love Wonster Words! Just like the Dr Seuss classic Hop on Pop, this app groups words according to their families to help beginner readers recognise how sounds are represented in words. There is enough to get your child started in the free version, with more word families continually being added for a price. From the same developer who brought you Puzzingo and Wonster Tales, Wonster Words is definitely worth checking out.

A simple enough concept, kids choose a word family, then create words by dragging letters into place. As they drag, the letters animate and make the sound of the letter. Very cute and engaging for children. Once the word is formed, the child is rewarded with a cheer and a short scene will demonstrate the meaning of the word. Then the word will appear again, with a narrated explanation. Not only are children learning to spell the word, but they are also increasing or reinforcing their vocabulary. It is not possible for children to place the wrong letter in a word, or the right letter in the wrong place, making this a great app for kids with special needs.
Already my daughter is hooked on this app (and my 10yr old son is too, just quietly), and I can see that the repetition and interaction with the words is going to help her immensely. There are already a bunch of great reviews for this app on the Amazon App Store, why not try it and leave your own review. Wonster Words could well be the turning point in your child's reading.
