The future of helping kids learn to read is here. See Words: Home lays out the fundamental steps in 14 engaging lessons using proven multi-sensory methods and phonics.

“I loved that it was simple and sequential. It started with a letter and guided them through the steps of reading from tracing to finding the sound and then spelling. Sometimes we give the kids too much. This was just right.”
- Annie, Kindergarten Teacher

See Words: Home provides pre-programmed lessons covering the fundamental sounds needed in the correct order to learn to read. That’s it. Simple lessons served up in a super-fun and engaging way with images, sounds and stories! No thousands of pathways, no crazy distracting rewards systems. Just the simple steps to learn to read in 14 lessons.


Each lesson of this “ABC app” takes one sound group through four levels of learning fun.

In level 1, it starts with tracing letters, saying the sounds and hearing your own voice shared back to you.

In level 2, readers build words using word families and the sounds they learned in the first level. This interactive practice reinforces what they just learned.

In level 3 of this reading app, your child will spell words with sound tiles.

In level 4, a story is read aloud to your Pre-K or kindergarten student as the print is highlighted. The student is able to follow along with the words of the story. Your child is then prompted to interact with the story by touching the letters that correspond to a spoken phoneme or letter sound.

“This is great for reinforcing what’s learned in the classroom.”
- Karen, Parenting-Center Aide

“It helps kids learn the correct letter formation. Other apps let you trace the letter but they just keep going. See Words: Home makes kids trace correctly before moving on. They learned to make the letters the right way.”
- Carol, mother of a Pre-K Student


Kids are encouraged by the character Billy who applauds their efforts and cheers them on with golden stars.


See Words: Home works. Just 15 minutes a day has been proven to boost word identification, spelling and writing skills.


Winner of the Cincinnati Innovates Award and an Excellence in Academics Award from the Ohio Board of Education for 21st Century After School Programs, this See Words: Home app is powered by a vote of confidence from the Ohio Third Frontier.

Clever School Supplement

I was looking for something to supplement my son’s learning to read in school and found this app. He loves it and insists on playing every day. It’s a great app to do with your child. He especially loves how it plays back his voice when he’s sounding out letters or saying words. It’s a clever feature that makes him very enthusiastic about learning.

Made the Steps to Learn to Read Easy

This made it so easy to work on reading with my son. He had been very frustrated and would shut down. He liked the pictures on this and the voice. he was into it and before you know it he was off and running. I have a degree but never knew the steps for teaching reading. This laid it all out.
