PlaySquare: WordWorld’s Happy Birthday Dog!

Review Excerpt: Billing itself as “touchable television”, this innovative new app mixes interactive play with TV- quality video, from the PBS show Word World. The result is a solid language experience, with a chance to play with letters and words to apply some of the concepts. In case you’ve missed a recent Word World episode, objects like houses or dogs are made out of words, helping children make the connection between clusters of letters and the items they represent. Content includes nine squares, each with a different vignette, and each with a set of challenges such as “can you help bear find a set of five balloons?” There are plenty of spelling challenges that might include finding a set of hidden letters and squeezing them together to make a word, required to move the episode along.
