At the bottom of the screen, users can tap the “Book” image, and the app will randomly select another letter. To return to the main screen, users must tap the “Up” arrow.

Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can allow students time to review the letters independently. When ready, students can signal teachers to come visit with them. When doing so, teachers can point to a letter on the main screen and have students make the letter’s sound. After making the sound, teachers can tap the letter to see if the student is correct.
  2. Once students are familiar with the letter sounds using this app, teachers can have them practice by writing a letter on the board. In response, students must say the letter’s name and then make its sound.
  3. After students are familiar with this app, teachers can create a 4×6 chart and label each spot on the chart with a different letter. Students will then have to find objects and draw them so each letter is represented with an image and object. The completed chart should model the chart from the app’s main screen. Students can then present their completed chart to a classmate or teacher. When presenting, students will have to say the letter, pronounce its sound, and then say the name of the object they selected.
