Help kipper collect matching words. Two flashcards are shown face up on the 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 children learn sounds through comparisons.
The aim of the game is to help Kipper pack his suitcase! You need to decide which of the six flashcards shown represent the sound played. If you tap the correct card with the word containing the sound you put a card into Kipper's suitcase.
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. Six 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. This is a more advanced game for children who can read or sound out a full word.
By going through all the cards before you start playing the game you can familiarise yourself with the words in the app. This section can also be used as prompts for reading or spelling tests outside of the prescribed games. A microphone button lets you record your children so that they can listen back to the words as they’re reading them.
