Happi and the Word Thief $2.99
While you can’t practice your own spelling words, you can practice spelling general words in a fun, game setting. The goal is to find and spell words before the thief steals them. This earns your detective badge and you move from easier words to more challenging. Fun educational app!

Educational Apps
An award-winning free language learning app that uses photographs and repetition to teach you words and phrases. It’s a good app for beginning language learners, especially, but you have to be a reader to do it. Languages: Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, and Italian.

Cute plush Sammi shows you how to sign words  like part, play, friend, slide, all done, swing, stop, down, hot, tree, rain, and more.  Sami’s long skinny arms and fingers make it easy to see the sign for each word. Very cool.

Calling all Super Readers! Play AlphaPig’s Wack-a-Word, Woof-De-Word Coaster, WonderRed’s Wonder Words Ball Toss, Princess Presto’s Spectacular Spelling Wheel, and Super Why’s Bumper Words. I like that in all these fun games, kids can choose upper case or lower case letters! Then, watch classic Super Why videos and decorate a place in the Phonics Fair. Great quality app!

Watch the movie or toggle between the watercolor drawings and the digital film version of each story scene in this magical story of a clever boy who climbs to the moon. Another fun option is to watch the interactive video which includes the movie, the words, and interactive elements. Wonderful!

    I’d like to suggest Unite for Literacy’s free online library, where you can read in English and listen in 15 languages to more than 100 books. An app is still in the works, but the library is available and growing all the time at http://www.uniteforliteracy.com
