Ratings and Reviews
Outdated video content which looks like from 1980s
Good content but very outdated presentation.
In the world of colours and enhanced graphic tech etc, not sure how a kid would click this app second time. And my daughter didn’t.
Really poor , little content can find a lot more on you tube for free !!
This is simply great. I am a secondary English teacher and a father of four young children. My third is currently learning to read using synthetic phonics and is struggling a wee bit. What is great about this app is that we can see exactly what her own teacher will be doing in the classroom, so can work with the same approach at home, reducing stress and tears. Beatrice loves this app and her two older brothers love helping her with it.
His use of jargon: "graphemes", "phonemes", "blending" etc grates at first, but my daughter doesn't seem to worry about it, and it helps to know this stuff as well. As a professional, it's also great to have an insight into the work going on in junior years. I'm wondering if I could have a go at something similar, but would certainly struggle to come up with something as good as this. Well done, Mr Thorne.
