Hear and Blend the Alphabet – Reading Readiness Made Fun and Easy With Phonemic Awareness, Letter Knowledge, and Blending All Rolled Into One
By Sound Reasoning Learning Solutions, LLC
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
In order to read new words, children need to 1) see letters 2) think sounds and 3) blend those sounds together. This app breaks up those tasks so young children can practice the last one, blending sounds together, even if they don’t yet know the sounds of letters. This app allows four and five year olds to be successful at this foundational skill and ensures they start out using the correct part of their brain to avoid dyslexia. Children hear the separated sounds of simple three-letter words as the letters appear. Then they choose the picture that represents that word. Correct answers get an encouraging sound or a funny video, and wrong answers teach. Meanwhile, they are absorbing letter-sound relationships, developing phonemic awareness, and learning how to segment sounds into words--the key to spelling success!
What's New in Version 2.0.1
Fixes bug of pages changing when children try touch buttons.
Pictures are now hidden to prevent distraction until after children have combined first two sounds in a word.
Fun and Easy!
I love how the wrong answers teach my child and the right answers encourage him to keep going with fun sounds and animations! This app clearly teaches him how reading works!
