+ Nimble Minds' best seller Bud's First Words - Reading Games' is a beautifully illustrated word learning and reading game, loved by kids, parents and teachers all over the world.
Join Bud on a journey through his house, school, city and around as he and his friends go from place to place to learn and review everyday sight words used in English for naming things. There is a long list of vocabulary for the children to learn and practice.
In Bud's First Words - Reading Games, toddlers and preschool kids will start learning by listening and reading nouns, the names of things found around them in everyday places like bedroom, bathroom, classroom, playground, park, etc. Then in Play mode children will read questions and they will be asked to identify the same objects and recognize their words to reinforce their learning. In no time you will see kids spotting and naming things around the house and increasing their vocabulary every time they play.
Along with the Common Core goals (described below), the aim of Words for Kids is to:
- improve reading skills by practicing words children hear at home and school
- improve reading fluency
- boost kids confidence and self esteem
- help children with difficulties like autism, add, adhd, speech delay, non-verbal in reading and learning English language and communication in a positive and stimulating way.
Activities in this game are based on the following Common Core State Standards:
Print many upper- and lowercase letters.
Use frequently occurring nouns and verbs.
Understand and use question words (interrogatives) (e.g., who, what, where, when, why, how).
Spell simple words phonetically, drawing on knowledge of sound-letter relationships.
Sort common objects into categories to gain a sense of the concepts the categories represent.
Identify real-life connections between words and their use.
Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds (phonemes).
Bud's First Words - Reading Games is the first app in our collection of English learning games with a focus on vocabulary. Next to Bud's First Words - Reading Games is our latest app Bud's Rhyming words - Reading Games, which focuses on word families, rhymes and vocabulary through 3 amazingly adventurous games.

User interface design is not age appropriate for language level Touch targets are far too small for the target age group. Also uses adult like 'x' affordance in pop up corner to close pop up rather than general tap on pop up. Is not age appropriate for the lannguage level Full Review

Disappointed The questions disappear to quickly. Kids aren't able to read it that fast! This does nothing to help children read, just another wasteful app! Full Review

Game seems like a test of patience for the children as its dead-slow. Moreover, Only 4 "Everyday Situations" are free (Bedroom; bathroom; breakfast; Classroom). So, if you are looking for a free app then its not entirely free. Kids didn't like the game actually. Full Review
