Fun Phonics Learning Tools contains multiple activities and videos related for early literacy development. From the home screen, users can select the activity or content they wish to engage. The first activity teaches users letter sounds by presenting an image and letter(s). The app then makes the letter(s) sound and pronounces the word depicted by the image. This option includes sounds and images for all the letters in the alphabet and common letter blends. Users are able to navigate between letters by tapping the “Right” and “Left” arrows on the screen. The second activity presents users with an image, an incomplete word, and a letter bank. Users are to slide a letter from the bank to complete the word. If they do so correctly, they advance to the next word. If not, they get to try again. The third activity is designed to develop users’ handwriting. In it, users are presented a guide for writing a letter. With their finger, users are to trace over the guide to complete the letter. If users wish to change their ink color, they can tap the “Paintbrush” on the bottom right of the screen. This option lets them change the color, and it also provides them with a blank canvas, where they can draw. Users can save their drawings by tapping the “Open Box” button, remove errant lines by tapping the “Eraser” button, and return to the letter writing activity by tapping the “Paintbrush” button again. The final activity gives users access to instructional videos designed for phonics development.

Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can have students view the different letter sounds in the app’s first option. After each letter sound, teachers can have students write the word of the image presented with the letter and another word that begins with the letter. That way, teachers will be able to track student progress as they move through the different letter sounds.
  2. Teachers can have students practice their spelling independently using the app’s second option. As they spell each word, students can write the word on a log, so they can keep track of the words they spelled correctly. Teachers can make sweeps of the room as students practice. To include a review of letter sounds, teachers can have students make the sound of each letter in the different words they spelled correctly and have included on their log.
  3. Students can replicate the second activity. To do so, teachers can divide their class in two halves. The first half of students will each have multiple letters (paper letters or plastic letters both work), and they are to each create a four-letter word using the letters. Then students are to remove one letter and form a four-letter bank. The second half of students will pair with a student from the first half and choose the letter from the bank to complete the word. After each pair is finished, the student from the first half can reset the letters, and the students from the second half can rotate to another partner and then repeat the process.
  4. Students can practice their letter writing skills with the app’s third option. When they are ready, teachers can transfer students from practicing on their device to paper-and-pencil.
  5. Teachers can show a video from this app’s fourth option to students. Afterwards, teachers can ask students to make the letters that were presented in the video and ask them what they learned from the video.
