For each letter, there are 3 types of games in the app:

Tracing the letter and then find the words with the letter: kids trace both upper and lower case letters, then tap on words that have that letter. Each time kids tap on a word, the word is read aloud to them.

Tap the items that have short/long vowel sound of a letter: at the top of the screen, kids see an example, like picture of spider web with the word Web for short E sound. At the bottom half of the screen, kids see 5 to 6 objects for them to choose from. If they choose the right item, they get a star. If they choose the wrong item, they need choose again. No matter they choose the right or wrong item, they hear the corresponding word read aloud to them.

Select the right letter to fit in the word: kids see a picture next to a word with missing letter. They need pick a letter from several options to complete the word. If they choose the right letter, the word is read aloud and shown as a complete word. If they choose a wrong letter, the letter will bounce back leaving the word in-complete.
