  Comprehensive phonetics
Word Grab helps your child gain a phonetic understanding of the alphabet, including both long and short vowels, and hard and soft letters. They will practice phonics in learning to correspond the sounds of language with the visual letters that represent them, and to improve phonemic awareness, the ability to recognize that words are made up of individual sounds. Through the game play children blend sounds, build words, and create sets of rhyming words. Customizable settings make it easy to adjust various options to suit the individual needs of your child.
     
  Words, words, words!
Word Grab features more than 250 words to expand vocabulary, each carefully selected to aid in phonetic understanding. 200 crisp photographic images illustrate the words and provide a correspondence between the sound, the illustration, and the written word. 200 storybook style sentences put the words in context to demonstrate usage and meaning. Visual highlighting enables children to follow along the words and sentences as they listen to the clear, professional voiceover.
     

  A friend and guide
Stuck on something? Helpful hints are provided by the friendly monster. These alphabet and word sound cards provide additional learning reinforcement that can be accessed on rotation as many times as needed. The monster acts as an interactive companion: watch as it chomps up letters, throws confetti for correct words, falls asleep when ignored, and wakes when tapped. Uncover zooming helicopters beneath its magical hat. This fuzzy friend serves to add dimension and forward momentum, maintaining the child's interest in the game play.
     
  Playful learning
Its impossible not to smile at the friendly monster, the hilarious hats, and the colorful scenes. There are 2 levels of difficulty - ABC Words and Rhyme Time. These each have 3 scenes to explore, all beautifully illustrated and animated, with popping moles and long-legged flamingoes. Reward activities, over 20 in total, are awarded at the completion of each set of words. Children give the friendly monster a funny hat to wear, then uncover beneath it an interactive surprise, providing both a mental break and a sense of achievement.
     
  Hand crafted
At Bellamon we take the time to craft every app with consideration to detail. The illustrations recall the simplicity of paper cut-outs and hand drawn lines. The custom music and sounds were put together by a musician with real instruments, and are pleasing to hear. There is clear, easy to follow professional voiceover for every sound, word, and sentence. We believe that kids deserve the very highest standards of interaction design.
     
  Built by parents
As parents ourselves, we make apps that not only cover educational ground, but that are also imbued with playfulness, encourage creativity, and give a feeling of accomplishment. The large, colorful game elements are designed for small fingers and intuitive game flow. We spend a lot of time thinking, planning and refining, to get the balance between entertainment and education just right. We always work in consultation with education specialists, teachers, parents and most importantly, kids! Who says that learning can't be fun?

 

A delightful early phonics app for toddlers and preschool-aged children... I find it charming that there are so many different ways of delivering the letter choices found center screen, such as floating through space and being held up by prarie dogs.

cThe graphics on this app are really unlike any other. It is very unique and can keep a child's attention very well. It's nice that not only does it show a picture of the word, but it also puts the word in a sentence and highlights the word the child spells!
