For children in the early stages of learning to read, Sound Seeker uses a simple matching game where kids listen to the initial sounds of an object pictured and drag it to the correct letter. The app can be used by a parent with their child, or given the apps simple interface, a child can play alone.
By getting the answers correct, your child will receive positive feedback. First, there are the sticker rewards for getting correct answers. Second, when a letter sound has been mastered, your child can select a sticker to play a mini game that reinforces the learning. Third, there are certificates and sticker charts that can be downloaded.
Importantly, the app is designed so your child will learn small groups of lettersin the fastest possible progress in reading and spelling.
There are parental controls that uses the pre-programmed use of letter selections and rewards, as well as random, vowels only, or customized letters.
In addition, parents can discover which letters their child has learned by checking the stickers page.
After your child has correctly learned 10 letter sounds, the game sends a report on progress and a certificate as an attachment, via the Mail app on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, to be printed out and to celebrate your child's achievement.
