Syllable Awareness - Winter for iOS

By App-licable $2.99

Developer's Description

Over the past 40 years, research has indicated that the best predictor of literacy skills is phonological awareness that is, the ability to segment spoken language into words/concepts, syllables and sounds. Without this crucial skill, reading, sounding out new words and spelling English are severely compromised.To that end, speech and language pathologists, psychologists, teachers, parents and other educators have taught these phonological awareness skills explicitly to their students/children. Syllable awareness is typically the easiest and first phonological awareness skill that children can learn. This syllable awareness Tap-App (Winter) is a fun way for children to increase this vital pre-literacy skill.Instructions for Syllable Awareness Tap-App1.Tap on the icon for the Syllable Awareness Tap-App2.A picture of a vocabulary item will appear; the item is also named.
