Recently added to our EduApps page is Hairy Letters, an app to support young children learn their letters, with an ability to copy out the shapes of letters whilst listening to the sound of each letter. The app contains humorous characters and illustrations throughout, supporting engagement and enjoyment whilst learning, with example words for each letter.
When newly opened (or reset) the app releases letters in stages, starting with a,p,s,t then i,n,m,d continuing until all letters are released. Games within the app support basic words, with an emphasis on sounds and letters. The app supports phonic progression, with the games becoming more advanced. Within education, this app is very suitable for all early year settings, being aimed at young learners up to the age of 5, plus also would be good for parents who want their young children to consolidate their learning at home using the iPad.
Priced at £1.99*, the app is available to download via the App Store. Click image to view.
