Word Games for Kids (iPad Only, Free)
Reviewer Comments
This is an engaging interactive app that works on matching pictures to words. The app is set up as a multi-player game for 1-4 players. In the settings, the content can be changed to include pictures from the categories of animals, shapes, things and transportation.
The players then compete against each other to see who can find the word among a set of four words that matches each picture the fastest. The game goes through 3 rounds and then a winner is declared. This app is best for early readers who are able to read at the word level.
We have used it with children between the ages of 6 and 8 years old with diagnoses of autism spectrum disorders and speech/language delays. The app can be adapted by giving each child a chance to take a turn and find the word that matches the picture. This activity works well when working with children with different processing speeds.
