Bananariffic! Monkey Match is the first iPhone app from Between the Lions, the Emmy award-winning literacy program from WGBH on PBS Kids — proven to help kids learn to read.
Created specifically for pre-readers, Monkey Match provides three memory matching games to help kids practice and build critical skills for reading: the identification of letters, beginning sounds of words, and rhymes.
With the help of a zany, surfer dude monkey who showers kids with “monkeytastic” praise, this free app takes learners through three levels of fun:
- “Upper and Lowercase Letters” helps kids match uppercase letters to their lowercase counterparts, like “M” and “m.”
- “Beginning Sounds” helps kids match pictures of words to their beginning sounds, like “moon” and “mmm.”
- “Rhymes” helps players match pictures of words to other words that rhyme, like “moon” and “spoon.”
All the letter names, sounds of letters and words are spoken to help pre-readers learn and gain confidence as they grow.
The app was created to celebrate Between the Lions’ 10th Anniversary Season.
