Today I want to share the app "Hideout" with you. This is a free early reading app created by Brigham Young University.
|This is the home screen for the app. You choose your word endings from here.|
The music is very catchy (think Carmen Sandiego) , and you will probably have it in your head most of the day :). For each ending there is a little introduction where it tells you the sound of each individual letter followed by telling you sound the 2 letters make together. There are then 4-6 words that you make for each word ending. Once you've made the words, you get to play a game using those same words you just made in the previous part of the app. After playing the game, you read about what you did during the game. You read by tapping each word; it lights up and reads the words to you.
|This is the screen where it introduces the sounds of each letter and the sounds of the letters when put together.|
I think it is worth a download, and you certainly can't beat the price! Let me know what you think!
