When you were a young child learning to read, you probably would’ve preferred phonics taught by pirates, vocabulary by monkeys, and spelling through carnival games. All those learning adventures and more await your little ones with Homer Reading.
Made for kids ages two to eight, the app matches children's unique passions with their current aptitude level to craft a personalized pathway, step-by-step, into the wild world of words.
Through more than 1,000 interactive lessons, kids learn to read faster—and learn to love reading more.
Based on NYU research, Homer boosts early learning reading scores by 74 percent with 15 minutes of practice per day.
The app is one of the most comprehensive early reading platforms, motivating children to learn, giving them skills to be strong readers, and delighting them with literary experiences.
Lessons are broken down into reading fundamentals such as phonics, sight words, and the alphabet. The prize-winning app begins with ABC-easy tutorials, then builds on a kid’s own interests to meet the needs of all learning styles and abilities through lessons, short books, poems, folks songs, and more.
Kids can also access more than 400 stories from a virtual library that even works offline; just download stories of interest to your child—unicorns, peacocks, monkeys, and more—so they can practise reading anywhere.
To get access to all of Homer’s content and your child’s personalized reading program, a monthly subscription is required. The app’s Family Sharing feature lets additional siblings flex early reading muscles as well as draw pictures, record transcendent young thoughts, and share virtual postcards.
Homer is free for teachers and librarians.
