Help Kipper collect matching words. Two flashcards are shown face up on screen. Snap if they contain the same vowel sound (for example ‘slide’ and ‘flight’ which both contain /igh/ sounds), or mark as a mismatch if they do not. This game helps learn sounds through comparison.
Help Kipper pack his suitcase. Six flashcards are shown face up on the screen, and a vowel sound is played. Tap on the word containing that vowel sound. Sound detective teaches children to listen for sounds, which assists in later reproduction, and helps new readers to sound out unfamiliar written words.
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.
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.
