Dora’s Rhyming Word Adventure

Dora's Rhyming Word Adventure has Dora and Boots trying to get across the Grumpy Old Trolls toll bridge. To this this they have to collect seven coins by playing a game. The game has a picture in the middle like a cat and will ask you to find that word that rhymes with cat. Around the cat picture are five or six other pictures that go in a circle around the middle picture. When a picture is touched the word that the picture represents is said. To see if you have chosen correctly drag the outer picture over the middle picture and Dora will tell you if you are right. Once you get seven right there is a mini game of throwing the coins into the basket.

When my four year old started playing this game she didn't know what rhyming words were but after playing for a short bit picked up on it. She now can go through the rhyming part of this game pretty quickly and not miss one. To add to the game there are also games with words that start with the same sound, end with the same sound, or have the same sound in the middle.

If you have a little one who likes Dora, this game is a must. It's very much like the learning games they play in the cartoon. My four year old loves it and plays it all the time. It has helped her learn words that rhyme and words that start with the same sound. We have used it to help teach her what letter words start with. As of this post the app is $1.99 in the app store.
