GoodieWords engages all of a child's senses to ensure solid learning by using sounds, sights, animation and activities designed especially for this age group by early childhood educational experts. Here you will find beautiful colors in rainbow hues along with lovely music and adorable, friendly characters. Let me stress too that GoodieWords enforces education while teaching values all at the same time. And this is precisely what makes it stand apart from other "learning only" apps!
Some of the unique features of this educational, vocabulary preschool app are as follows:
- 18 interactive read-along and play-along learning activities
- Child selects a word, which is then described in the trademark GoodieWords style
- Child interacts with the words to build a deep understanding of the definition of each
- Delightful, interactive animations, music, sound-effects, and surprise features
- Read-to-me mode to hear definition or story read aloud
GoodieWords is all about learning new words, many of which have morals and themes that help a child to grow in maturity as well as knowledge. These are not just alpha words such as jump, run, sleep. Instead, some examples of the 18 meaningful GoodieWords are fingerprint, patience, shadow, dream and healthy. When you open the app, you will hear upbeat music, and see the first page of 9 words with a picture in a circle describing each word. Swipe to get to the 2nd page of words.
Tap on any word to hear the meaning read aloud with many examples offered as to its meaning. You are then taken to an animated, activity page describing one of these examples. "Patience" is one of my favorites... "When you take your time to catch a fish, this is also being patient!" Your example illustration is of a little boy sitting in a boat on a stream next to a doggie in an inflatable tube. The colorful fish are swimming along underneath the bobbing boat, and the boy must try to catch them with his fishing rod. You interact by moving the fish hook to the fish. (Come on parents, you know how fishing takes extreme patience and dexterity)! Along with this underwater scene comes the soothing, sounds of bubbling water. Play this activity as long as you like!
That is just one of the many activities GoodieWords offers. You learn many ways in which you use one word at a time, and are given an animated, interactive page to help engross and bring the meaning of the word home even more. Tap the redo arrow to start the activity over and over again. You may also swipe sideways to get to the next word, or tap the scroll arrow at the top of the page to get back to your list of words. No reading is necessary for this app as words, definitions and activities are read aloud to your child. GoodieWords, in my opinion, is a vocabulary and self-growth activity app that is a lovely and unique addition to every preschooler's learning.
