Mother’s recently launched Singing Letters, an iOS application for both the iPhone and iPad designed to bolster a love of literacy in children.The application is a companion piece to the website Ministry of Letters which functions as an educational site helping to teach children to read in a fun and memorable way.
The application consists of an animated signing alphabet, made up of 26 individual male and female characters. The letters are waiting on a stage for the interactivity to begin. When a child touches the letter, it sings its ‘phonetic’ sound. As the child continues to press letters, they build simple words, and create unique tunes that the alphabet preforms.
The application has a fun quality to it with simple animations. There is a quality about it that is guaranteed to draw any child in. Fun, simple, entertaining, and game like this is sure to be a hit. Watch the videos below to get a sense of how the application works, and click through to see what Ministry of Letters is all about.
