Description

This app will help your child learn the sounds of the letters of the alphabet, which are necessary for reading. Learning the sounds of the letters gives your child the tools for reading and helps them become better readers. In this version 4 phonetic matching phonetic photo images are matched with each letter to help your child learn the sound of each letter. This builds on the previous app and will help your child prepare for the next app in the series.

LOWERCASE
Don’t waste your child’s time teaching them capital letters, which represent only 5% of the words in printed text. 95% of the printed word in books and periodicals is in lowercase letters. Give your child the smart start of learning lowercase letters first.

LETTER SOUNDS
The sounds of the letters are what give children the tools for reading.
Just like counting skills are the foundations of addition, knowing the sounds of the letters are the foundations of reading. Contrary to popular belief and the current educational paradigm, teaching your child the names of the letters DOES NOT help your child learn how to read! TEACHING THE SOUNDS OF THE LETTERS DOES HELP YOUR CHILD LEARN HOW TO READ! Give your child the smart start of learning the sounds of the letters!

RHYTHM
The repetition and rhythm of the words will help your child memorize the sounds of the letters.

VISUAL
The photograph images and colored letters will help your child in learning the letter sounds.

AUDITORY
Children speak all the sounds and words.
Each letter will repeat its sound when touched.
Each photo will say its name when touched.
Most young learners child will enjoy repeating the sounds they hear on this app.

FOCUS
All distracting bells and whistles have been removed to allow your child to focus on the essential skill to be learned here-associating a letter with its most commonly occurring sound using photographs.

A team of educators using accelerated learning techniques and Montessori principles developed this app. It has been tested and used with preschool children. The children loved it and it helped them learn the letter sounds. Please give us your feedback and suggestions.

Phonics Fun

This app features lowercase letters and their sounds.
It uses photo images to help with letter/sound associations.
It has 12 images for every letter which it categorizes into grouping by the initial sound of each word/image. These can be viewed and reviewed in a photo library.
The app has two games in it. The first game is where children can match letters to a choice of pictures based on the first sounds of words. There are multiple pictures and the child must choose which pictures begin with that letter/sound. The second game is where children match a picture to the right letter among a number of choices. These are both drag and drop games. I find this app to be useful and helpful to help the children in my class learn the sound of the letters. The children enjoy playing the app.
