Bigmouth Sounds for Iphone Publisher's description
from Vox Aux
Bigmouth helps children learn the speech sounds for spoken English.
Bigmouth helps children learn the speech sounds for spoken English. Bigmouth is a friendly cartoon character that gives direct guidance on how to make the sounds correctly. Stories and games make learning fun. It’s designed for kids to play by themselves or with adult guidance.
Bigmouth Sounds includes:
*Quality voice recordings allow children to hear speech sounds and learn to make and discriminate speech sounds. Standard English accent used.
*24 consonant sound character cards and 12 vowels character cards, with all sounds heard in isolation and in words.
*Written and spoken instructions available on how to produce each sound.
*5 fun, sound-based stories that are read aloud to the child with picture scenes. These encourage listening and repetition of sounds.
*Snap game for auditory discrimination work: two spoken sounds are heard and can be repeated, with Bigmouth characters, feedback on success or try again.
*The app has 5 levels to choose from. These levels work up in difficulty in accordance with the recognised developmental order that children learn speech sounds. Level 1 is the easiest. Level 5 is ‘all sounds’.
Bigmouth was originally designed by Speech and Language Therapists Norma Ramsay and Sara Hughes, and has been widely used for many years. Bigmouth has been successful with pre-school children, children with hearing impairment and with learning disability, and also with some adults.
*Bigmouth has a variety of mouth shapes that illustrate the articulatory positions of the lips, teeth and front of tongue.
*A clear distinction is made between voiceless and voiced sounds. The light green colour shows a sound is voiceless (quiet) like ‘s’ and ‘t’, and the dark green colour shows a sound is voiced (loud) like ‘z’ and ‘d’.
*Bigmouth has a nose to show nasal sounds.
*Bigmouth often has an associated item that acts as a visual clue to the sound.
*A selection of 12 vowels is included. Long and short vowels are distinguished by the size of the character.
