I-Spy Interactive games help children develop confidence as they start to read. For any chosen letter there is a list of objects to find in the picture. The audio helps children focus on the initial sound and then find objects starting with that sound in the picture. Spoken rewards indicate when they are correct. The number of objects in a picture varies depending on the sound and children enjoy the challenge of finding them all. They can seek help within the game when they get stuck. This game is ideal for collaborative play and developing literacy skills together. Teachers can select the letters within the apps to use as part of lesson activities or support particular children.
Available for iPad, Android tablet, PC and Mac. For further details on device compatibility, please see the Apps FAQ.
The Apple iPad version of this app is not included in the multi-platform licence but can be purchased separately via the App Store.

“Initial sound finding and good for letter formation as it has a giant letter shape to follow. Children need instructions for this game from an adult to understand how to play but overall good content and good for phonics reinforcement.”
