What's New in Version 4.7
Fixed a bug. Should have caught it earlier. Sorry bout that!
Best app I've tried!
I just started homeschooling my kindergartener. This is the best reading app I've come across! Before this app we were using the Hooked on Phonics program, but the app was too gameified and my son would simply play the games and memorize the stories, but he was actually learning how to read. This app is much more rigorous than Hooked on Phonic, but in a way that my 5-year-old finds enjoyable. It's challenging in just the right way. His a ability and enthusiasm for reading has really increased!
One thing I really like about this app is that the picture is not on the same page as the reading practice. If there is a picture on the page, my son will just look at it and try to guess what the words mean, rather than trying to reading. No picture means real reading.
I also really appreciate that the app is entirely phonetics based and doesn't include any sight words, only words the child has been taught how to sound out. It's much better suited to my son's learning style.
The lite version includes plenty of material so you know what you're paying for and if it will work for you when you upgrade. The upgrade is very reasonably priced for a complete reading system (less than half the cost of Hooked on Phonics). Totally recommend for homeschooling or parents trying to help their child outside of school. You can do it with your child or it can be self-directed. Love it!
Great classroom app
I downloaded this app for my kindergarten class. If love that it requires my students to really apply what the've learned from the lessons and students can go at their own pace.
By far, one of my favorite apps we use in homeschool. It is helping my struggling reader build confidence. Highly recommended!
