Punflay's My Word Wall App (Review)

Punflay has an app to help your young ones with early reading now, and it's called My Word Wall. From Punflay's site,  " Introduce your  young reader to Word Wall - an interesting and engaging app that helps beginning readers practice reading and writing skills through numerous funtastic activities!"

Quoted from Punflay's site: "Word Wall helps early beginning readers learn to read and write by:

     *Hearing, visualizing, vocally repeating  and writing down letters and words.
     *Providing activities that cater to budding readers using multiple learning styles such as spatial, visual,
       tactile, language-oriented, logical, or rhythmic.
     *Engaging kids with four well-designed reading games that reinforce recognition of age-appropriate
       sight and word family words.
     * Providing structured learning ESL/EFL and special needs students to help develop or improve their          
        reading  and writing skills. "

I had fun playing with the memory matching game called Hide a Word, you had to find both cards that matched----one was the word and the other was a picture of the word! Jigsaw Words was fun to play, too, where you had to put the right parts or the words in the puzzle together.    This is definitely another app from Punflay that I would recommend for those of you who have young ones in the 3 to 5 year old range!

The key features of this app are :
    * Kid-pleasing graphics and colorful interface
    * Interesting and simple activities
    * Over 75 sight words, and 12 word families with 65 family words
    * Caters to multiple learning styles
    * Reinforces early reading skills

It's compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch. iPad. Requires iOS 4.1 or later!
