Wallykazam Letter and Word Magic App

The Wallykazam!: Letter and Word Magic app was inspired by Wallykazam!, the network’s latest preschool literacy TV series, and aims to help kids develop phonemic awareness, letter knowledge and sound associations, and promote excitement about words and learning to read.

Developed by curriculum consultants and tested by kid focus groups, The Wallykazam!: Letter and Word Magic app follows Wally, Norville, Bobgoblin, Gina Giant and Libby Light Sprite, in magical and hilarious adventures.

The App Curriculum Includes:
  • Letter Recognition and Letter-Sound Correspondence: Users search for missing letters in Wally’s forest, but must watch out for troublemaking Bobgoblin;
  • Letter Writing: Kids can learn to write letters with Libby Light Sprite by tracing and dragging letters in the night sky. Each time a letter is traced it grows brighter to show progress;
  • Rhyming Words and Word Families: Users must build a stone word tower out of rhyming words to help Wally reach the top of Gina Giant’s head. As the tower grows higher, Gina giggles causing the tower to tilt, prompting kids to turn their devices to keep up;
  • Alliteration: Kids can use the words rewarded from each activity to make Ogre Doug’s creatures do a variety of entertaining and silly things, like making Borgelorp big, blue or burp.

You can download the app for iPad on iTunes for $6.99
