ABC Phonics Word Family is Recommended Children’s App of the Week. The app, which is available for iOS, Android & through Amazon’s App Store and Nook, helps kids learn phonics in a fun way.

The $2.99 tool includes 56 different phonics word family groups to help kids learn how to spell. Here is more from the app’s description:

The Phonics Word Family provides the word phonics spelling, beginning sound, word family phonics, short vowel sound, and images with a lot of animations and interactions for each word. There are a total of fifty six word family groups which focus on the short vowel, long vowel, two vowel, and combination vowel word family phonics learning. After children complete the phonics spelling in each group, the matching game follows and children can review what they learned.
