Then you are brought to this screen,to choose which of the 9 activities you’d like to do.  There’s writing, letters, smart quiz, speak and listen, making words, draw and paint, time to rhyme, vocabulary, and sight words.

Writing – A piece of lined paper and a word are on the page, your child will then trace the word and asked if they like their writing.





Letters – You find the matching letter (only 4 are given at a time).  They tell you the letter as well as the sound that letter makes.  Great for beginners!

Smart Quiz – listen to the question and find the matching picture.  Example “Carrot begins with c.  Which on begins like carrot” the pictures would be a lion, rabbit and cat.  Once you choose cat you get a little tune.  The questions do change to keep you child involved.  The next example question is Ï look like a mouse, but I am bigger.  Who am I?” The pictures are a chicken, rat and frog.

Speak & Listen – This is a recording one.  Your given a written word and asked to tap to record yourself saying the word.  Then you can play it back and are asked if you said the correct word.





Making Words – A picture of a word is shown (Example – Pan), the app will then sound out the word Pan and you are given blank tiles to fill in the word out of 4 letters.

Draw and Paint – Is just that, you pick a picture and color it.

Time to Rhyme – A figure of a house is given with this phrase “On the house I see a _____”, above the house are 3 pictures a mouse, hat, and ear of corn.  Then you move the mouse to the house and get a congratulations.

Vocabulary – Tap the word to hear it and then match it to the picture.

Sight Word – Help the bunny get home.  In this repetition app, the bunny jumps on about 6 carrots all the same word to get home.  Another great one for the beginners.




I really like this series of apps, lots of learning and not realizing it.  There’s one more!  Look for my last Eggy app – Spelling!
