As the title suggests, this app is all about the alphabet. There are 5 sections with all of them giving you the choice of uppercase or lowercase letters:
Know your ABCs – you have a choice of either the letter names or the phonics sound, there is also a play and pause button
ABC Flash Cards – this section the letter name and the word is shown and spoken. There is an arrow to take you to the next card and another to take you to the previous.
Easy Jumble – you have 5 letters that need to be put into alphabetical order, using drag and drop, as the letter is selected the letter name is mentioned.
Jumble A-Z – the entire alphabet is presented, where you see how fast you can put the alphabet into the correct order. There is a help button, which could be helpful for younger ones.
Jumble Challenge – a select of letters starting off with 5, to rearrange them into the correct order. How many can you do in less than a minute? and beware of the fish! it bites 10sec off your time limit! (I would love to see a choice of phonics here too)
I would like a ‘click’ option that once the letter is in the correct spot it stays, for those who stubble with fine motor skills
Why did you decide to develop this app?
We develop Alphabet Jumbled with John Dewey’s ECE Philosophy, Learning by Doing in the back of our mind.Learning by Doing which is a very big idea now that many early childhood educators abide by. The way Alphabet Jumbled is designed, is that kids learn by doing, by thinking. that’s what we call a cognitive process. Even in a simple thing like learning ABC, we are designing in such that they go through a thinking process, a cognitive process to learn it, much more than what a ABC song will do for them.
We try to create a new generation of learning aids where kids go through learning by thinking, learning by doing, learning by play. something that books can’t do for them.
