Raising Babes! ,


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!

Daughter asks for it all the time. She loves it, I love it.

My daughter absolutely loves this game. She asks for it everyday and knows her numbers enough to override the grownup settings and try to do more than one lesson a day. She loves the song and is excited about each of the modules. I had originally bought the book Teach your kids to read in 100 lessons, but was overwhelmed by where to start when I saw this app and it seemed similar. We took the assessment and started in lesson 12. I like that this app offers and assessment so we didn’t start at the begging and below her level. I like that modules that reinforce phonics, comprehension, letter recognition and letter writing and reading (the components behind the science of reading). The app itself is not buggy and is seamless on both my phone and the iPad. Overall this is a great app that we love. My only suggestion is that the grownup screen use simple addition rather than the word form of numbers, which is easy for a learning to read kid to override.

Love it so far

Teaching my 5 year old how to read and just learn her sounds has been such a struggle!! Was feeling hopeless. We’ve used some other “school” apps like Homer, KanAcademy and dulingo for kids, with no success. And even with at home curriculum we never make it very far before we just quit because I’m so frustrated and she can’t focus. We’ve done 7 lessons so far and she is the one reminding me to do them everyday. The alphabet song is great and actually teaches the sounds in a really fun song. The lessons are short and interactive and also make it so the parent has to be involved and do it with them. But still super simple and they go really fast. Neither of us gets burnt out. And even though she’s excited and wants to do more than one lesson, the program recommends doing only one a day. We haven’t been using it for very long, but I’ve seen more progress in her reading skills than ever before. Loving it and definitely recommend it.
