Designed to help children with early word formation and beginner spelling, the WORD Animals spelling apps focus on spelling with one vowel at a time. WORD Dog is the thirdd in the series, following WORD Pig and WORD Cat. WORD Dog utilizes the vowel "o" for word formation, while WORD Pig concentrates on the vowel "i" and WORD Cat the vowel "a".
Currently available for both iPhone and iPad, this suite of apps is parent-approved and teacher recommended.
WORD Dog offers 2 levels: one for "forming" words, a form of discovery, and one for "spelling" words as they are spoken.
As children spell correct words, they are rewarded with an Animal Sticker with sound. Each 5 words enables the child to have another sticker and they can, at any time, go to the Safari center and "play" with their animals. This form of encouragement, including verbal encouragements from the Dog, helps kids strive to learn the spelling of new words. Each WORD Animal offers a different Animal environment for their group of animals, with animals that live in that environment, such as seaside animals, which will be available with the next spelling app WORD Hen.
