Find The Letters combines an early reading app with color-by-numbers. Users are presented a grid containing a number of different letters which they must color in with the correctly corresponding color crayon. As levels progress, the difficulty increases by utilizing similar letters such as “b” and “d,” forcing users to focus more closely on the task at hand. Completing each level reveals a colorful picture to help visually demonstrate the user’s successful identification of each letter. Users may also compare their fastest times for completing each level, working to improve these scores over time. Find The Letters is available in both a free and paid version. The free version offers a trial of each difficulty setting, but users will need to purchase the full app in order to complete the levels in their entirety. This app is a great tool for beginning readers learning to identify the letters of the alphabet. Find The Letters contains no inappropriate material and is recommended to any user ages 3 to 8.



Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.

find the letters 1Find The Letters requires players to exercise focus while both locating the correct letters and changing their focus from letter to letter. Each time a new level is introduced, players are tasked with locating a new set of letters. Being able to identify each letter and locate it successfully amongst a large number of similarly shaped letters requires a great deal of focus and attention. In addition, players will need to change colors after locating all instances of one letter and begin searching for a new letter. Shifting attention to a new task which requires a great deal of concentration will require users to exercise and utilize the Focus thinking skill.

Working Memory

Recalling and retaining information in our mind while working.

Learning new letters requires users to exercise the Working Memory thinking skill. A key component to learning to read is being able to identify the different letters in both lower and upper case. Users can gain additional practice while playing Find The Letters as they are tasked with identifying two letters which might otherwise be easily confused. For example, some more challenging levels require users to identify between "b" and "d." Doing so causes the user to retentively select the same letter which can help them convert the task to Working Memory so that this information may be deployed later. Users will learn each letter of the alphabet while also practicing identifying them against letters with a similar appearance. Over time, recalling each letter can become easier as the Working Memory thinking skill is utilized.


find the letters 2For early readers, learning to identify each letter in the alphabet and learning what sounds the individual letters make are the first steps to success. Find The Letters can help beginning readers familiarize themselves with the shapes and sounds of new letters so that they may identify them in other text-based media. Young readers will spend time finding the difference in sight and sound of the letter "b" and "d" which are commonly confused symbols amongst beginning readers. Find The Letters can help beginners start the learning process early, providing new readers with an extra edge on their road toward reading proficiency.
