Howie Hungry Monster (Build Words)
iOS Universal Education
This is a fun game to improve your child's reading abilities and memorizing new words. Learning to build words by sounding them out adds to a strong foundation in reading for beginning readers. All of the app’s 1,110 words can be sounded out using common phonics rules grouped by Short Vowel, Long Vowel, Bossy R's and other Vowel Team words. In this game, your child will choose the beginning sound and rhyme to build a word. Each correctly built word will feed Howie a macaroon. He is very hungry, so try to build the correct words as many as you can!
Also included is a progress report for parents. The report allows them to track their child’s performance in building the sound out words grouped by vowel sounds, and provides play history with game details (i.e, On this date, your child has played level 1 and level 2 and in each game, what item has been asked and what your child has answered). An additional setup option allows for a parent or teacher to control the level of word difficulty and customize the number of questions to match their child (i.e, CVC words are included in easy level, digraphs are in medium level and blends are in the difficult level). **In this new version, we add the options for self-correction (i.e, kids could correct their answer in the second try) and clearing out all the reports. This game will help your child improve their reading skills in a fun and interactive environment.
This app is divided into 5 total levels to help children practice words grouped by vowel sounds (i.e, Short Vowels, Long Vowels, Bossy R and other Vowel Teams). The final level will mix all the words together to challenge them. In each question, more incorrect beginning and rhyme sounds will be added to increase difficulty.
**All words have been recorded by professional voice talent.
