ABC Minsters is a new app by Flatter World, Inc. the maker of US Geography With Flat Stanley, for all IOS devices. The letters are placed in alphabetical order so that they can be found easily. Each letter is displayed in both upper and lower case versions. There are four different activities to complete for each letter:
- tracing the upper and lower case letters
- learning words that begin with the target letter
- rearranging blocks to spell a word that begins with that letter
- putting the letter back into the correct spot in the alphabet
For example, if the letter is “Ff,” the words that begin with “f” include fork, flower, frog, fox, and fence. The word to copy is “frog”. After finishing with the letter, the child returns it to the empty spot between “e” and “g”. As you can tell, the user interface is designed to be effortless.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked-
I like the fact that ABC Minsters includes practice writing the letters as well as recognizing them. For many children, their fine motor skills tend to lag behind. This app allows them to practice writing each one separately, and particularly difficult letters like “Gg,” “Kk,” and “Rr” can be practiced over and over. I also liked the use of children’s voices to name the letters. That is an effective way to demonstrate that an app is kid-friendly.
Overall, ABC Minsters is a good choice for beginners. It is simple, straightforward, and easy to use.
ABC Minsters is availabe for download via the iTunes App Store - iOS Universal
