The alphabet games app is an enjoyable way for children to practise recognising the letters and sounds of the alphabet, both aurally and in writing. This app contains 62 words. The games are appropriate for children who know the letters of the alphabet and how they sound when spoken out loud (for example ‘a’, ‘b’, ‘k’, not ay, bee, cee etc). Before playing the games, you can check your child’s familiarity with the alphabet by scrolling through the “all cards” section.

The three games included inside the app – Fishing, Sound Snap and Sound Detective – will help your child to practise the letters and sounds, building their confidence while they have fun.

All cards

All cards

Familiarise yourself with the words in the app, flipping through the all cards section. A microphone button lets you record your children so that they can listen back to the words as they’re reading them. Use the cards as a prompt for reading or spelling tests outside of the prescribed app games.

Sound detective

Help Kipper pack his suitcase. Six flashcards are shown face up on the screen, and a phonics sound is played. Tap on the word containing the sound. Sound detective teaches children to listen for sounds, which assists in later reproduction, and helps new readers to sound out unfamiliar written words.

Sound detective
Snap

Sound snap

Help kipper collect matching words. Two flashcards are shown face up on screen. Snap if they start with the same sound (for example ‘ant’ and ‘apple’), or mark as a mismatch if they do not. This game helps learn sounds through comparison.

Fishing

Help Biff catch the words. 6 flashcards are shown on screen and a word is played. Tap on the word that was read out to add it to Biff’s bucket. A more advanced game for children who can read or sound out a full word.
