Funny Phonemes

Phonemic awareness training meets pop culture jargon and clean slang in my newest app available for free on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and Google Play for Android and Chromebook. Older students will love it (and so will you)! Practice hearing phonemes, identifying missing phonemes and arranging them into words. What words? Over 250 of them including surfing terms, social media lingo, school-yard epithets and, of course, a few terms worthy of Captain Underpants.

Extra Goodies like novelty voices, different colour schemes and sound effects can be unlocked with points earned training. Or get the Upgrade to Premium to unlock all the Goodies, remove ads (a short video every 15 exercises) and control which phonemes to focus on in the Phoneme Set Editor.

With the Editor feature, you can fine tune which phonemes the learner is asked to identify and differentiate. Want to train on word-initial consonants only? Short vowel sounds? Exclude consonant blends? Use single-syllable words only? It's all easy with the Editor.

With over 250 slang words from all over the globe, there are sure to be some words or usages that are new to you or your student. No worries! A tongue-in-cheek slang dictionary is built into the app with a handy text-to-speech function to read the definitions aloud. Get Funny Phonemes on the App Store or on Google Play.

You can also read this blog post to learn more about the design of Funny Phonemes as a phonemic awareness app for older students.

“Timeless texts…tweaked!” In this new game, as well-loved poetry and excerpts from classic books scroll by, you fill in the blanks by choosing between the author's word and another selected from a large and lovingly hand-picked set. Accurate or novel: either way you win! All the details at WordWhile.ca .

WARNING: possible side effects of playing WordWhile include: increased vocabulary, improved memory, greater familiarity with literary classics and giggling. Studio Goojaji assumes no responsability for any learning incurred as a result of playing WordWhile...but the giggling is totally our fault.

Planet Lettra

Download on the App Store Badge
Planet Lettra for iOS is a digital playground for making spelling and phonics discoveries. Kids build words by pushing and bumping the letter bubbles together in the sky over Lettra. The bubbles are smart; they guide kids towards spelling real words. On the surface of the planet are creatures hungry for bubbles. When they get a snack, their funny reactions also encourage kids in their word building experiments. Learn more here.
