Classic – introduces each letter of the alphabet using a slideshow format with easy prompts and a “SHAKE feature” to work your way from A to Z.

See it, Say it – has the child choose between three letter blocks, that when touched, say their letter name. The object is to DRAG the correct block to the corresponding picture that begins with that letter. This game reinforces letter recognition and initial letter sounds, using both your visual and auditory senses.

Hear it, Hit it – has the child choose between three buttons, that when touched, say a letter sound. The object is to DRAG the correct button to the corresponding picture that begins with that sound.
