Bugsy Kindergarten Reading School is a learning app for early readers to learn and practice alphabet, phonics, and spelling. If you have followed iGameMom for a while, you may remember another Bugsy app – Bugsy in Math Kingdom. Bugsy Kindergarten Reading School features the same character – the cute hamster Bugsy. It is currently free for back-to-school. If you have an early reader at home, this is a great one to have.
The interface of the app is very simple. Kids of young age can use it all by themselves. When kids start the app, they will be greeted by Bugsy with questions. For every five questions answered, kids can receive a reward – a sticker or a character to join their astronaut land. If kids do not get the right answer, they will be asked to try again till they get the correct one.
The learning contents in the app:
Alphabet — lowercase & uppercase letters
Phonics — beginning, ending & vowel sounds
Spelling — missing letters & arranging letters
Reading — Dolch sight words & more
Vocabulary — 370+ words
Each subject has 5 levels. Parents can adjust kids learning level in parent’s section, which you have to follow the screen instruction to get in. In the section, you can also see your child’s progress. You can put in multiple children’s profile in one app.
Here are some very nice features from the App Store:
Self-Adjusting Difficulty Levels — tailors each question to your child’s skill level
Verbal Instructions — constantly reinforces learning
Individual Controls — turn on and off subjects to focus on specific skills
Track Learning Progress — see how well your child is doing
Multi-Child Support — easy to use in a classroom setting
Email Reports — see what your child is up to in the weekly progress report
