Word Wagon

Duck Duck Moose did it again! Their apps continue to make our list of favorites. Today we played Word Wagon for the first time. This app is going to be so helpful for learning letters and recognizing words. It includes 4 levels to grow with your child: Letters, Phonics, Spelling I, and Spelling II. (In the video we did phonics.) Each word you spell gets added to your wagon and posted on your sticker board. After 3 words matched in a row, you get to play a star matching game to create the outline of a mystery animal. Super fun!

It will be really interesting to see how Word Wagon will help Stella with her ABCs in the next few weeks. Here is where she is currently at with her numbers and letters, as demonstrated with the Oscar’s Balloons apps. She can count to 10, but she almost always skips the number 8. She can recognize about 5-10 letters from the alphabet:

Update: She *knows* her ABCs. See Epilogue.
