This Monday, Word World will have more literacy lessons and advanced vocabulary words as they explore compound words, phonology, letter recognition, print awareness, comprehension and socio-emotional skills. Here is a preview show clip on compound words.
Word World wishes you “a happy Fall full of WordBuilding!”
WordWorld has three new WordWorld mobile applications for Samsung’s new bada platform. They are available in most international countries, however, not in the United States. Hopefully, these apps will extend literacy lessons which are seen on the WordWorld television series by using children-friendly media. These are the new apps available:
- BEAR’s Skateboard Park Game
- DOG’s Letter Pit Game
- Snug as a BUG eBook
The immensely popular WordWorld “Build a Word” app is now even better! In response to feedback, they installed the following upgrades:
· Re-programming the app to be compatible with the 4.0 iPhone operating system.
· Randomizing the presentation of the WordFriends for more WordBuilding fun!
· Decreasing the price. You can now purchase the app for the low, low cost of only $0.99.
“The “Build a Word” app is based on the WordWorld television show. Children will shake up this “WordBuilder” to watch letters float across the screen. They can then place letters in the outline provided to build words one letter at a time. By pushing the letters of each word together, words will magically “morph” into WordFriends! DOG, DUCK, PIG, ANT, FROG, SHEEP, BUG, COW, CAT and BEE come to life and help children build early literacy skills.”
You can download the WordWorld “Build a Word” app from iTunes.
