Tommy, our animated character, will teach your child the English alphabet through three engaging games.

Tommy Teaches the Alphabet™ is three games in one:

Teaching Game: Learn

Learn is a game where Tommy patiently teaches and quizzes your child. When mistakes do happen, Tommy will re-teach and make sure that the child learns that item. Tommy adjusts what is being taught in order to focus on where the child is having problems rather than re-teach and repeat what he or she already knows. This is very important. Most learning apps for kids make your child endure endless repetition of what they already know. This is counterproductive. If you ever spent time teaching your child any subject at all you probably understand very well that it is important to focus on what they are having trouble with, not what they already know. Tommy does just that. He will focus on the areas where your child is having trouble and keep at it until he or she learns and can move on to the next items to learn.

During the game your child earns stars and receives constant praise and encouragement. Learning is tested in depth through quizzes with increased difficulty levels. Tommy is upbeat and, through constant feedback and praise, keeps your child in the game.

Discovery Game: Explore

In Explore your child can engage in a simple game where he or she can explore the items being learned and learn more about them. It all serves to reinforce what is being taught.

Problem Solving Game: Puzzle

Finally, the Puzzle game is a tactile activity that has the child solve puzzles of increasing complexity while, at the same time, teaching. Stars are earned throughout the process. The puzzles also get harder as your child moves up the levels.

Kids are different. Some will prefer the Learn game while others will spend lots of time in the Puzzle game. Regardless of preference, Tommy is always there to provide praise and encouragement while taking the role of a patient teacher.
