Little Stars Word Wizard App – Gone Free

Little Stars Word Wizard   is another Innovative Mobile App(Grasshopper/Alligator Apps developers) providing beginning phonemic practice  offered free for a short time (48 hours).!

Compatible with iPhone/iPad, this app features 150 – 3 letter words requiring identifying first, middle and last letter consonant and vowel sounds. As all the Innovative Mobile Apps, they provide customizable features. This app provides something new, a 1 and 2 player mode. Here are some screen shots of the app:

 A new feature of their apps provides assessment data of their accuracy – what a bonus!

I have not trialed the app, but if it is like their many other apps it is well worth the download!

Not familiar with Innovative Mobile Apps? Visit their website, they provide dozens of emergent literacy apps that are well-developed and customizable, truly a wonderful resource of educational apps and books apps for early developing literacy skills.

As a OT and team member of students with developmental challenges, apps like Little Stars – Word Wizard provides supplementary activities to our students. Many of our students with Autism, who enjoy word work, will readily engage in such apps and support their literacy skill development.  If it isn’t needed in your OT iTool Kit,  be sure to share with teachers, speech pathologists and parents!

Thanks Innovative Mobile Apps!
