Looking for the perfect educational app that gives your child purposeful screen time? Wonster Words is an interactive app for kids ages 3-6 that combines phonics, science, math, art and music in engaging educational activities. The learning app has won several awards including Parent’s Choice, Children’s Technology Review Editor’s Choice, and National Parenting Product Award.
Wonster Words offers a variety of activities through it’s home screen, Wonster Island. Wonster Island features biome selections in the areas of phonics, stories, math, science, art and music. Each biome is filled with animated puzzles that kids can complete based on the category. As your little one completes the puzzles, fun music and sound effects reinforce what your little one is learning. Once the puzzles are completed, they are rewarded with mini games that further reinforce the topic. For example, in the science biome there is a weather puzzle. After your child completes the weather puzzle, he/she gets to “control the weather”. Your child can create weather conditions like tornados, rain/thunderstorms, and blizzards and dress up the main character (Puzzingo) in appropriate outerwear.
My 4 year old loves this app and I like that she is learning a variety of key concepts for preschool. She particularly enjoys the word based puzzles in which she can put together animated letters that clearly sound out phonics, gliding vowels, and consonant blends to form words. Once the words are complete, short animations and mini-games tell the story of the words through fun Wonster characters! My daughter never grows tired of this app as it is packed with a large selection of content and she can choose different activities each time opens it.
Some additional key features of the app are the following:
- Learn the ABC’s, phonics and spelling
- The super cute Wonster crew is present as your child explores word families, phonemes, digraphs and more!
- Silly animations reinforce word definitions in a fun and engaging way
- Hundreds of words, 12 word families and 12 original stories; new content frequently added
- Stories cover popular themes including: birthdays, friendships, nature, space, and more!
