First Words Animals iPad App - Reviewed & Recommended

Review: First Words Animals

This is a fun way to learn both letters for younger children, and words for older ones!

Features of First Words Animals:

  • One of our favourite apps for learning to recognise letters, perfect addition to homeschool
  • This kids app is fun and informative
  • Tile manipulation enhances fine motor skills for the very young
  • Builds young ones vocabulary with visual representations of the word
  • Phonics: Word-Sound recognition makes this App GREAT value - Fun AND Educational

One of our favourite literacy Apps on iPad, the quality graphics and friendly interface makes this a must-have App for young children.  It is a great introduction to letters, and phonics and helps older children with repetition-based reading skills.

It has a wonderful selection of animals to learn. 

Beneath each animal lies the lettered tiles it takes to spell each word.  Tap and hold the letter and drag it into the correct order.  

Once all the letters are in the right order you are rewarded by the verbal repetition of each letter and a confirmation of which animal it is. 

The picture of the animal spins, makes the relevant animal sound and appears nice, big, bold and colourful on the screen.  This is beautifully done, and feels like a 'reward'!  

Age Group: 3-9
