Word Games brings Oxford University Press’ Biff, Chip and Kipper to fun games and flashcards designed to help children learn. It is an enjoyable way for children to practise reading high frequency words through playing games. This app contains in-built flashcards with common, high frequency words that children need to learn to recognise by sight. Some of the words are decodable, but the aim of the app is to get children recognising and reading all the words quickly, without decoding them. This game focuses on specific words to help learn structure and form.
The 3 games are designed to help your child quickly recognise and read high frequency words, build reading confidence, whilst having fun at the same time! Sound detective helps identify word sounds through selecting words with the spoken sound contained within. Memory is a fun game to match useful words. Word builder is a great way to form important words using the letters. In addition to the games, the app has a mode where you can scroll through the entire card set to consolidate learning. You can also collect stickers to track your progress with the aim to unlock the rare stickers.
