Why Phonics Word Families? Kids learn to read early by using Word Families (as known as Analogy Phonics) by finding commonality (i.e. short a sounds or long e sounds) among a set of words. Educators use these word families to teach early readers to see and hear the patterns of these words. The app features over 635+ Vocabulary Words, reinforced through fun interactive games. The game consist of Five different learning modules to reinforce the comprehension of Word Families:
1) Word Families Group: Review the words in each of their respective Word Families.
2) Flashcards: See the spelling, hear the audio, and learn the words.
3) Drag & Spell: Hear the audio then spell words by dragging the pieces into the right spots.
4) Unscramble: Test to see if the child comprehends the lessons from the other modules.
