SquareTales Area - SquareTales stories with our patent-pending SwipePhonics™ technology bridges the gap between sounding out individual letters and blending them into words. Carefully crafted text in each story enables emergent readers to start connecting words and sentences to read fun stories. With 40+ eBooks and new content being released on an ongoing basis, these stories help your child learn how to read so they can say, “I read a book all by myself!”

The Square Panda Literacy System is designed to keep children engaged and having fun when developing important reading skills:

- Provides simple, highly controlled text to support beginning readers
- Builds knowledge of word families and common spelling patterns
- Introduces CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) words and sight words
- Supports ELA state standards in foundational reading skills
- Supports reading fluency through guided practice and repeated readings of text
And much more!

Square Panda's learning games have had more than 400,000 words spelled and more than 2 million letters played!

PARENT & TEACHER PORTAL - With the Square Panda cloud-based parent and teacher portals, parents can follow their child’s progress as they learn letters and words and teachers can manage student profiles, monitor progress, and identify instructional opportunities.

“This is the first time that I've seen him able to actually make that connection and put those sounds together to make words. I am so excited and he is so excited as well to be reading.”

“This is making a huge impact on my students and their reading ability. To me, that’s amazing!”

"Seeing my daughter advance in her class with letters definitely made me feel good and confident that I'm helping pick products and choices that are making her advance in reading and writing.”

Would be better if it worked

From what I can tell it looks like it would be a great app... BUT, the app crashes before one page is read! Very frustrating for me and my 4 year old.. Thankfully she has more forgiveness than me, she just keeps trying over and over again despite me telling her to play another game. Please fix!! 2 stars for the graphics only, I can’t play it long enough to rate the app fairly

Lots of fun with letter learning

I’ve been using this app for 3 months now. My 8 year old enjoys playing the games, and his letter sound confidence has grown tremendously because of it. He has been more willing to read aloud in class because of his new confidence. But its the 3 year old who asks to play! He knows to follow the star, and try the letters that come up in each game. He can name all 26 now, and almost half of the sounds he can recognize. The playset is a huge hit with him as well.

This app is one I happily let my children use their ‘screen time’ for.

Great learn to read application

My son loves playing all the games. He’s truly benefited from them and has started to read three letter words with ease. He’s also very into building out his home and garden with items he earn. He loves being able to pick the game and keeps returning to play them.
