I was recently invited to review WordWorld’s new “Build a Word” iPhone app, but I don't own an iPhone, so once again I'm giving the game code away to one lucky Bonggamom Finds reader. The WordWorld show on PBS is so adorable, with animals literally built out of words, and I'll bet my kids would love it. Man, I really need an iPhone. Or better yet, WordWorld needs to port this app to other platforms. Hey guys, when are you making an Android version?!
Win a WordWorld "Build a Word" app for the iPhone
Here's more information about the game:
WordWorld, a three time Emmy Award-winning, multi-media franchise, helps children learn English and develop key literacy skills. It is an innovation that is partially funded by the U.S. Department of Education and has been demonstrated by rigorous scientifically-based testing to improve children’s early literacy skills, including: print awareness, letter knowledge and comprehension. WordWorld is just as it sounds: A magical world made of words where fun rules the day.
With the WordWorld “Build a Word” app, children can shake a “Word Builder” and watch letters float across the phone screen. They can then place letters in an outline provided to build words one letter at a time. By pushing the letters of each word together, words magically "morph" into WordFriends! DOG, DUCK, PIG, ANT, FROG, SHEEP, BUG, COW, CAT, and BEE come to life, encouraging children to build early literacy skills. Learning to read has never been this much fun!
