In order to read new words, children need to 1) see letters 2) think sounds and 3) blend those sounds together. This app breaks up those tasks so young children can practice the last one, blending sounds together, even if they don’t yet know the sounds of letters. This app allows four and five year olds to be successful at this foundational skill and ensures they start out using the correct part of their brain to avoid dyslexia. Children hear the separated sounds of simple three-letter words as the letters appear. Then they choose the picture that represents that word. Correct answers get an encouraging sound or a funny video, and wrong answers teach. Meanwhile, they are absorbing letter-sound relationships, developing phonemic awareness, and learning how to segment sounds into words--the key to spelling success! We start with the easiest type of words to blend and progress to more difficult words after lots of practice.

Fun and Easy!

I love how the wrong answers teach my child and the right answers encourage him to keep going with fun sounds and animations! This app clearly teaches him how reading works!

They. Work —- Perfect

I’ve used these for years with learning readers... They are fabulous. They align with the science of reading for how successful readers read.

Gentle and thorough

I like the gentle encouraging voice of the robot and the menu that lets me repeat any part of the lesson as much as I need. For my budding reader it's very helpful that any wrong answers are teaching moments (vs a "no" sound), and the right answers have reinforcing sounds and surprises.
