Is It Any Good?

For kids who struggle to spell or who might benefit from extra time to internalize specific phonemes (letter sounds), this app is amazing. The videos in OG Card Deck are short and simple, which makes targeting specific sounds easy and effective. Note that data isn't collected through this app; it's meant primarily to be a practice tool with a lot of well-designed content. Also, it's not the kind of app that will immediately appeal to kids, since its look and feel aren't particularly kid-friendly, but as a part of a bigger program, it offers a proven approach that helps kids learn foundational reading and spelling skills.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
