Read and Write Trooper iOS and Android App
This app is developed by Heep Hong Society’s ‘Read and Write: A Jockey Club Learning Support Network’ Project Team (which comprises educational psychologist, speech therapist, occupational therapist, early childhood education consultant and social worker) for K2 to junior primary school children. The children can strengthen their language foundation through playing the engaging games and develop their listening, speaking, reading and writing competences.
The game takes place on three islands on 11 themed lands and includes over 600 activities. The children will become the trooper and venture into different themed lands, taking on listening, speaking, reading and writing challenges waged by the animals. The app is also equipped with ‘expert advice’, ‘story station’ and demonstration videos such as ‘stroke order exercise’ to teach children language knowledge and learning tips.
This easy-to-use app works best together with The Language Learning Package for Pre-primary Children and The Guide to Language Development of Pre-primary Children for Parents. The effectiveness study showed that well-designed, interesting games can reinforce children’s language foundation, improve their learning motivation and enhance their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. It is most effective for children with emerging difficulties in reading and writing.
