Vocabulary apps for early learners

Reading is the single most effective way you can help your child to build his or her vocabulary. Strong vocabulary can help your son communicate and express himself better, and will be a benefit when he starts school. While we know that nothing can replace the benefits of reading, there are other avenues available that can help build our children’s vocabulary skills and engage them on a different level. 

These vocabulary apps for early learners can help develop and broaden your son’s vocabulary.

1. The Very Hungry Caterpillar & Friends – Play & Explore
A stunning 3D pop up app featuring fun and educational games and activities.

2. Endless Alphabet
Your son will have a blast learning his ABC's and building vocabulary with the adorable monsters in Endless Alphabet.

3. Word SLapPs Vocabulary 
Word SlapPs can be used to teach receptive vocabulary specific to your child’s world with the images that you choose. 

4. Big Bird's Words ... A Sesame Street App

5. wurdle
For the older early learner, wurdle is a fun, flexible and fast-paced word game the whole family can play.

Trinity Grammar School encourages your son to realise his potential, pursue his passions and discover his purpose all within the context of a supportive Christian environment. We have guided boys to grow in mind, body and spirit for over a century and we know what boys need to truly flourish and succeed.

At Trinity, we recognise the importance of making a good beginning. The myriad of opportunities provided in Kindergarten, the first year of formal schooling, lay the foundations for all future learning.

The International Baccalaureate Organisation’s Primary Years Programme (PYP), Trinity Grammar School’s chosen Primary curriculum framework meets the academic, social, physical, emotional and cultural needs of each child. Within this framework, from the beginning of your son’s education, proficiency in Literacy and Numeracy is fundamental and intrinsic to learning. Skills are introduced systematically and deliberately, based upon the individual development of each child.
