This app has been wonderful for my six-year-old and seven-year-old sons… We began homeschooling last year for their kindergarten and first grade years, where our concentration was mostly on reading. We used the teaching and methods found in the book “Teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons”. This app fits perfectly with that methodology, and into our homeschool curriculum! Especially with our 6 year old, now first grader, who is still growing in his phonics recall, sequencing of sound, and fluency… Every time he completes a level he smiles so big!! This app is the perfect balance between curriculum and fun! I do believe that his foundation rooted in the book based curriculum has allowed him to move with a greater pace than the typical beginner schedule, and this app allows an adult to unlock the next lessons as I see fit. In all, this app is great no matter the experience of the learner and the teacher (caregiver)! It’s a gem that is well worth the cost! Finally, the app suggestion and emphasis on parent involvement is so important and necessary. Knowing some families don’t have that type of culture however, this would still be a good gift for a child with a device, and could be completed with the help of an older sibling or relative!

Teaches You How to Teach Your Kid

This app guides parents and their kids through a basic, but effective, phonics-based reading curriculum. It is not a game (although it does include some simple games for purposes of practice)—you and your kid both have to WORK to get through the lessons. That being said, I have found it very effective at teaching important reading skills like phonemic awareness, sound blending skills, sight words, etc. We have been taking it slow, because my daughter is still in preschool and she doesn’t always want to do the lessons (she knows it’s work, not play). But, having completed lesson 70 of 99, she is currently the best reader in her class of precious 5-year-olds. I recommend this app to everyone who wants to give their kids a head start on reading!

The one downside: my daughter hated the alphabet song they make you play at the beginning of lessons and groaned every time it came on. Repetition is important for learning, but the kids with excellent memories may find it irritating. Luckily the app lets you skip it, which we did (although never fast enough to avoid the groan).

So far so good

We just downloaded this app for my 5yr old who’s in preschool (turned 5 recently). The reason why I only have 4 stars is because I would like to see more games for them to play, on their own. Do the lesson with parents, then work on their own having fun with learning games. She just started so the only game she could play was the cloud one, & that frustrated her. She wanted to play more games from this app, but the other games were too advanced at the moment. So it would be nice to see more games for them to play, especially for beginners. So as they’re waiting for their next lesson they can have some fun playing learning reading games. Other then that so far it’s kept her interested. I’ve tried the hooked on phonics app, & she wasn’t interested. She kinda liked it, but I think it was too boring in the end for her. She likes the bar & sounding out the words with this app, liked the cloud game, & likes the song. She even went to watch her shows, & then asked me how she can get back to “her letters” lol
Also maybe have the cloud game come up with more pics & different items for each letter, when she saw the same stuff for letters she said “AGAIN!!? Ugh!” Haha! And she was hoping to see a snake for S.
