Nimble Minds Releases a "Pure" Educational App for Classrooms and Homeschool: Bud's Rhyming Words

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) July 17, 2014

Nimble Minds today is happy to announce its new app, Bud's Rhyming Words released worldwide on App Store, Google Play and Amazon. Rhyming is creative and a fun way to play with language. In Bud's Rhyming Words, kids will learn word families, CVC, short and long vowel words through three wonderful games. Rhyming is a precursor to learning how to read and write. With a successful completion of each level in Bud's Rhyming Words, kids will have a strong sense of phonemic awareness and a solid groundwork for written language.

In the first game, Word Families, kids will learn word-to-picture relationship and ending sounds of 40 most common word families in English language. Kids will drag the picture of a word and drop it in the box with the correct answer. There are forty word families and five unique words to learn for each of them.

The second game, Pick & Click becomes challenging when kids are tested with what they have learned in the previous game. Upon getting a word, kids will have to pick and click one picture from a set of six, which has a word that rhymes with the question word. The first two games focus on ending sounds along with the word-to-picture relationship.


Also available is Catch the Match, the third and the most comprehensive game, where kids are shown a word and they have to catch all the incoming words that match with it. This game consists of forty five questions distributed among easy, medium and hard modes. Not only it includes words which are from the same word family but also the ones, which sound the same but belongs to another word family.

Bud's Rhyming Words also includes a profiling and scoring feature, which has been purposely designed for teachers at school and speech therapists, so they can monitor the performance of their kids and save their progress. "With Bud's Rhyming Words, we have taken a step further from casual learning experience and intentionally designed it along the Common Core State Standards for ELA so that teachers can easily make use of it in the classrooms," explains Talal Baweja of Nimble Minds.

A child safe app with no in-app purchases, no social media, no advertising, and no external links without parental gates, this app is suitable for children between 4 - 8 years old.

  • Forty word families with 225 unique words
  • Three rhyming games
