Touch and Write Phonics

By Fizzbrain LLC

Cost: $2.99

This app helps children practice their writing skills while learning the sounds of the English language, including vowels, blends, and digraphs. This app integrates visual, kinesthetic, and simulated tactile modalities to enhance learning and fun.

Pros:

  • Provides explicit lessons on vowel sounds, blends, and digraphs
  • Makes writing fun by allowing children to choose from 35 different writing papers and 18 different writing textures (e.g., shaving cream, ketchup, syrup, pudding)
  • Option to create your own word lists
  • After each word, children have a brief reward time. They can make a little monster eat cupcakes

Cons:

  • Sometimes difficult for the app to pick up on the letter tracing and forces you to start the letter over again.

Available for iPhone and iPad.
