Product Review of Planet Lettra
Kids are able to experiment with word building and hear real and imagined words read aloud in Planet Lettra. Kids are guided to build important sight words and exposed to common letter blends. Once they have created a word, kids can choose to feed it to the friendly monsters that live on Planet Lettra. Underneath the planet’s surface are all the words eaten by the monsters. Kids can rearrange the words into sentences and hear them read aloud. Planet Lettra can be used under the supervision of an adult or educator to help learners with spelling and phonics practice.

“Used this excellent, fun, motivating app in my first grade classroom to reinforce learned skills and to explore and play in the world of letters and sounds. This app was fun for kids at all levels. They love exploring nonsense words and discovering real words. Great for English language learners!”
“Planet Lettra is a word building app that helps students develop phonemic awareness. In this playful, interactive environment, students can freely experiment with word building. Letter bubbles float around the screen and guide players in building different words.”
