[prMac.com] San Jose, California - AbiTalk has released ABC Phonics Word Family 1.05 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The Phonics Word Family provides the word phonics spelling, beginning sound, word family phonics, short vowel sound, and images with a lot of animations and interactions for each word. There are a total of ten word family groups which focus on the short vowel word family phonics learning. After children complete the phonics spelling in each group, the matching game follows and children can review what they learned.
Word Family Phonics Basics includes ten different phonics word family groups:
"_at", "_en", "_an", "_et", "_it", "_ip", "_op", "_ot", "_og", "_ug"
Recommended for ages: 4-7, the game uses the Montessori Method for children to learn phonics and spelling. It will help develop skills in listening, learning, spelling, and pronunciation of words. The game helps children recognize common word patterns, and understand how the initial consonant, middle vowels, and ending consonant affect pronunciation. These are all important stepping stones to becoming a proficient reader.

AbiTalk was born in 2011 when Emmy Chen, a software engineer and entrepreneur turned stay-at-home mom, realized that interactive apps could be a powerful tool for teaching her young son reading and phonics. Unlike static workbooks and flashcards, apps give kids instant feedback, keeping them engaged and interested in learning. In addition to reading and phonics apps, AbiTalk offers a range of mobile and online apps designed to assist English and Chinese learners. These apps were inspired by Emmy's own experience: after coming to the United States from China, she learned English in six months in order to attend graduate school in computer science. AbiTalk now offers dozens of apps for learning phonics, reading, arithmetic, and languages - and more are added every month, so kids can keep building their skills without getting bored. AbiTalk's apps are truly kid-approved: Emmy's son and daughter inspire and suggest many of the designs, and they test every app. Copyright (C) 2012 AbiTalk. All Rights Reserved.
