Kisha Koala helps children learn to identify letters and their sounds. There are some crazy squirrels with a basket. As kids click on letters objects that start with that letter will fall from the tree. When players are finished exploring they play the totem pole game. Kids build totem poles by matching consonants and their sounds. Upper levels challenge players to choose pictures with words that start or end with a certain sound. Totem poles pronounce sounds and will repeat the sounds with a click.
Casey the cat is at the pond and players make words by choosing turtles with different letters. Each letter is sounded out and words are sounded out after they are formed. This is a great activity to help kids learn to sound out words. Casey also has a fun river rafting game. Players steer Casey on his raft as they round up turtles to match letters, match ending letters or spell words.
Pierre Bear is in the field with the bees who can buzz vowel sounds. Kids click on flowers shaped as letters to hear short vowel sounds. The vowel bees need help finding the right hive.

This is a unique activity to help kids master the important vowel sounds.
Children can also explore rhymes with Cecil the mouse and play a shipwreck game to identify rhyming words and complete rhymes.
