An app from the very popular Jolly Phonics team. Children are given a flowerpot and have to work their way around the flowers, listening to and interacting with different letters. Children are given the phonetic words, encouraged to trace the letters and given an object that starts with that letter. When tracing you are stopped if you go outside of the lines, useful for getting children to repeat and practice motions. It would be better for later pen and pincer grip if children could use a stylus for this. Children are also encouraged to match letters to their phonetic sounds. Word blending games and spelling advancements.
