Looking for clean CVC practice? This is a good app to consider, especially for very early readers. Designed to introduce early readers to consonant-vowel-consonant words, this app first presents a black line image (e.g., "Pig") along with a scrambled set of letters. By spinning the words, slot machine style, children can build the word. If they do, the scene is filled with color. There are no gimmicks in this app making it good for classroom use.

The app has a lot of repetition, picture-word association, and focusing on specific parts of 50 three letter words. Some of the words are unconventional, and it is not possible to have accounts for multiple children. An options menu lets you turn off/on the background music. This app would get higher ratings if the spinner was easier to use (we wanted the letters to snap into place) and if the app gave you a better idea on your level. Early reading teachers should consider this app.
