Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Noodle Words HD - Action Set 1 is the first in a series of "word toy" apps. This app helps emerging readers recognize 18 action words in a playful, unique way. This app is helpful for kids who have difficulty comprehending words and spoken words. The animation and verbal reinforcement can benefit kids who have difficulty understanding visual information and holding images in their memory. As the words illustrate their own meanings -- "pop" pops around the screen, "grow" sprouts leaves -- two irresistible little bugs also act out the same meanings in humorous ways. Noodle Words HD also can be a powerful way for kids who have difficulty reading or remembering word meanings to interact with words in a stress-free, playful way that may just help them see words in a new light. This app is an inspiring example of how creativity and humor can help kids learn.
What's it about?
First, listen to the brief tutorial on NOODLE WORDS HD - ACTION SET 1. Then view all 18 words on the "All" tab and choose one, or tap the on-screen box, out of which a word appears. As it does, listen to the bugs speak it, watch them act it out, and tap the word to watch the word act itself. Repeated taps result in new animations, all of which are hilarious. Tap the box again, or tap "All" to choose another word. Parents can tap "Menu" to view tips. Noodle Words HD is fun, out-of-the-box wordplay.
Is it any good?
