Tutors and Home Educators
Yesterday we were contacted by a private tutor who wanted to find out a bit more about Froggy Match-it. She told us that she taught several children at home whose parents were concerned about their reading and spelling. She was finding the tablet a good way for the children to learn, particularly as they could carry on with an activity each day for a short time between her visits. She was looking for a phonics app that used British English spelling and, if possible, followed the Department for Education’s Letters and Sounds phonics programme. We were able to tell her that Froggy Match-it ticked both of these boxes, and also that there were downloadable writing sheets to accompany the interactive games, which we felt would be useful for a tutor.
At the BETT exhibition in January we had a few home educators on the stand, who were looking for interactive games that followed the phonics being taught in UK schools. Some of them had already bought phonics apps, but felt they did not concentrate on actual spelling skills enough. They all were very impressed with Froggy Match-it, and said how useful it would be for their children.
