Bug Games App

Bug Games app, by Busy Bee Studios, is a fun preschool app with four different activities: counting, letter identification, music  and phonics as well as visual motor activities to entertain (don’t tell them that they are learning!!!) preschool children.

Based on a bug them, users match letters that make 3 letter words which are sounded and blended accurately when finished and cause a chrysalis develop. Users are rewarded with a choice of a sticker after matching the letters correctly on just a few words.

Other activities include recognizing number order to create a dot to dot “web” and spatially orienting a path/tunnel that when completed allow ants to find their home. Music can also be played in one of the activity choices providing standard children’s rhymes (London Bridge, The Famer in the Dell, Three Blind Mice e.g.).

Bug Games is a basic, preschool app for students with minimal customization (you can chose to work with upper case letters or lower case letters) but fun learning activities for young children. Currently free, it certainly is worth downloading given the visual motor/spatial relations components in the counting and puzzle activities that might be appealing to OT’s, parents or early childhood teachers.
Have you used the app? What other apps would you recommend?
