Description

Get a jump start on reading and pronunciation with LearnEnglish Kids: Phonics Stories! This interactive storybook app offers eight stories with each story focusing on a different set of sounds.
This app is designed to develop the reading confidence of young learners (6-8 year-olds).


PHONICS-FOCUSED STORIES
Eight stories follow space spies Sam and Pam as they visit Earth and start to learn English. Every story is specially written to highlight a new set of English sounds.
Each set of phonics is repeated throughout the story, encouraging children to understand the relationship between sounds and letters.

UK PHONICS PROGRAMME LETTERS AND SOUNDS
LearnEnglish Kids: Phonics Stories follows the UK phonics programme Letters and Sounds. Phonics sounds are grouped together logically with the simplest sounds covered first. Complexity is developed naturally with phonics sets getting slightly more difficult with each story.

LEARN NEW WORDS AND HAVE FUN
The app also has a strong emphasis on building vocabulary. Fun interactive flaps help children develop their reading comprehension by revealing new parts of the story. Each story also comes with its own game and set of picture cards to further support your child as they learn new words. There is also a surprise colouring activity hidden in every story for your child to discover.

READ ALOUD TOGETHER AND ALONE
As the audio track plays, words light up to support listening and reading. By encouraging your child to read along with the audio you can build their reading confidence further. When they feel ready to read independently, turn off narration and allow them to read out loud on their own.

PARENTS GUIDE
A detailed parents’ guide goes through the sounds covered in the stories and gives tips on how parents can use the app to help their child improve their reading confidence. The parents’ guide is available in English, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Thai.

Customer Reviews

Good app

Mummyofatoddler

My biggest complaint with this app is you have to buy each story separately, it would be nice to be able to buy a bundle. Other than that I would say this is a very well made app. My three year old son really enjoys the stories and the flaps that are on nearly every page. He is entertained by them and wants to keep reading to find out what's going to happen. They're not the simplest of learn to read books but I think in this case, that's a good thing. It's not just about making the child read, but about them hearing the different phonic sounds. I really like that each book focus' on a different set of phonics. Well worth downloading.

My kids love it!

They like reading the stories with Sam and Pam but also like the activities that go with each story, especially the colouring activity!

Not working

Maspalomastwo

It would seem that the only the free book is the only book that is working! .. Why are my other paid for books not working?
