WordConnex practices sorting, a researched based learning activity, to encourage discovery of patterns. This unique learning app is designed by a teacher with many years of experience in the classroom.

With WordConnex, your child will “hear, see, and touch” words.  Players first see and hear a word. They must determine which category it belongs in.  Then they drag the word to that list.  When the word is dragged it makes a sound. WordConnex takes advantage of touch screen technology and promotes kinesthetic (physical) learning. There are at least 30 exercises within each of the 3 levels. There are over 70 Word Sorts and over 1000 words.

This is an excellent app for families with several young children.  It’s also ideal for playing alongside your child. Early reading skills are helpful but not necessary if you are playing with them. There is a count down with % scores following each game. It has many setting options for all types of learners. Voice is computerized.

Helpful hint: Turn off previous word sort or the game will replay the one you just finished.

New lists have been added for this holiday season. They include: Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and more.

Have a great weekend,


P.S. We have a few suggestions for activities and games you can play with your child to reinforce what they’re learning with WordConnex. Check them out!

  1. This might not be the best place to inquire about this, but I’m trying to find a pest control company in the pittsburgh region and have no method to find out who’s the best. I uncovered this company which is really close to me and wished to see if any one has any testimonials on them. Spectrum Pest Control, 3058 West Liberty Avenue, Dormont, PA 15216 – (412) 446-2802
