Boost literacy and vocabulary skills

Picture the scene: you’re around the dinner table discussing your day and suddenly your child comes out with a word that impresses you when they’re describing their day.

They’ve unlocked cool creative stuff and mascot bits so they’re happy, sorry, ecstatic! And you’re pleasantly surprised, apologies, astounded.
Whenever your child is describing their day, their Zappicon will make suggestions that broaden their vocabulary and their enjoyment. Regular use of the same word across the app, reinforces your child’s spelling of it, which in turn, builds their retention skills.

Summer slide? More like summer pride…

They’re free to be as creative as they like about their day. Let’s face it, without DiaryZapp, how would you know that aliens were under the table, serving gravy to the dog?
