About the app

Peep & The Big Wide World Paint Splat

Ready, Set, Splat! In this Paint Splat app, which features the hilariously quirky duck, Quack and his plucky robin friend, Chirp, kids make Quack jump on paint tubes to mix colors on the fence. Watch out for the hose!

Paint Splat offers kids the opportunity to experiment with mixing colors or match a color Chirp holds up a on a card. If the color orange, purple or green (which make up the secondary color group) is successfully created, Chirp offers some of the harder-to-mix tertiary colors. Like many of our games, this one gets harder only if the player is succeeding.

By tapping on the paint tubes, players can make Quack squirt up to two blobs of blue, yellow, and red paint onto a fence. Tapping on the hose washes the paint off, enabling kids to have a fresh start.

Kids can experiment with mixing whatever colors they like or they can try to match the color Chirp holds up.

The PEEP and the Big Wide World Paint Splat app from WGBH was produced by WGBH, the producers of PEEP and the Big Wide World, with additional development work by CloudKid. The animated series PEEP and the Big Wide World gives wings to the innovative idea of teaching science to preschoolers. Wry and distinctive visual humor, charming plotlines, and lovable characters combine with a comprehensive science curriculum to attract and engage kids three to five years old.

More about Money Math Duel – Split Screen

I built Money Math Duel for my daughter who is in second grade and learning currency. I wanted a way for her to practice adding up coins and dollars to get more familiar with making change or paying for items.

Customize each side to make it easier or harder depending on the player. This is a great way to equalize the playing field if one player is stronger than the other. For example, one player can adjust their settings to only generate questions between $15 and $20, while player two can adjust their settings to only generate questions between $0.01 and $1.

“My daughter is very new to spelling, having taken a whole word reading approach so far rather than phonics and having a significant visual impairment – we have noticed that she only looks at the first letters of words. Special Spelling is worth its weight in gold as we try to introduce her to the world of spelling and looking beyond the first letters.”

“At first I thought it would be beyond my daughter as she only recognizes a few letters but her ability to match the letters after I’d customized the levels in the settings has made this one of her favourite apps to date.” 
Suzie, Parent

More about Sight Words Coach

Did you know that automatic recognition of Sight Words is critical for functional literacy?

This fun game covers all five levels of Dolch Sight Words. It makes the most of study time. How? By remembering which words are more challenging to your student and asking them more often.

Playing just five minutes a day with this game could make a dramatic difference in your student’s future.

The importance of complete Sight Words mastery cannot be overstated. These are some of the most frequently used words in the English language. Even though there are only about 200 Sight Words, they make up approximately 50 to 70 percent of any general, non-technical text. Therefore, fast recognition of Sight Words is an essential part of functional literacy.

Features:
– Colorful graphics
– Fun sounds
– Automatically creates a list of 10 words that need more work.
– Add custom words featuring your or your child’s voice.
– This App is ad-free.
