Description

“PocketPhonics teaches the basics of reading and writing to young kids. Most surprising? It seems to work.” 148apps.com

PocketPhonics teaches kids letter sounds, first words and handwriting. It is used in hundreds of elementary schools and pre-schools, and tens of thousands of homes. It is aligned with the Common Core State Standards, and independent research (see appsinmypocket.com/research) found children learnt nine times faster using PocketPhonics compared to a classroom lesson.  It works on iPhone as well as iPad.

A certificate is emailed to you each time your child masters a set of letter sounds or can write a group of letters. Certificates are designed for printing and keeping, providing a record of achievement and a wonderful source of encouragement. Kids are so proud of themselves when they see their certificates.

Letter sounds are taught in small groups and a child is shown how to blend them to sound out words (e.g c-a-t is cat).

PocketPhonics shows children how to write letters using an arrow they can follow with their finger or stylus. PocketPhonics supports two different writing styles, and for each style, kids can write in lowercase, uppercase and cursive.

Phonics (letter sounds) help children to read by understanding the sounds that letters make. The National Reading Panel concluded that “children who have phonics instruction read better and spell better than other children”.

Letter sounds are not the same as the letter names (what we call the letters). Montessori & other experts recommend not including letter names when teaching letter sounds as it can confuse children by introducing too much at once. PocketPhonics focuses solely on letter sounds so children can learn to read more quickly.

PocketPhonics teaches the sounds for all the letters in the alphabet plus over 30 letter sounds like ‘sh’ and ‘ch’, because they are key to reading so many frequently-used words.

Using a unique, “letter sounds make words” spelling game, children learn how to sound out and spell 160 frequently used words.

Parents and teachers can monitor kids’ progress online, and receive a weekly email on their child's progress. As the child learns something, the emphasis is switched to what they next need to learn. For instance, when a child learns a word, the app replaces it with a more challenging one.

Teachers don't need to worry about making sure kids have the same iPad each lesson. If a child switches iPads, they automatically continue learning from where they finished previously.

Amazing! Twins age 2 and a 7 yr old second grader!

:
These apps are amazing! My seven year old daughter is learning cursive and the number app goes great with this writing game. You tell kids it's a game and he or she is more willing to play with learning!!! My younger twins are on the easy levels and all of it is fabulous! Not overly priced tv combo sets or buy more at 179.99 plus extra shipping. Just an inexpensive app that helps the whole family have fun and learn. I love I don't even need to buy apps for the age groups, all in one. We downloaded the free version and less than five minutes our second grader was begging us to purchase and she has "played" for the last few hours with ME!!! We are working on cursive. Must have app! I would suggest this for younger kids who are writing, even if they are only two holding a pencil and just learning to write. My twins age two love seeing the pictures they make by me pushing buttons! Never too early to start!!

5/5 stars

Great app!!

:
My three year old daughter loves the game. She calls me at work to ask of she can play what she calls "yay" because of the positive reinforcement after she learns a letter or sound. She is learning English sounds and letters very easily and with great enthusiasm.
Great App.

5/5 stars

Learning and loving...

:
My son (4.5) loves this app. He wants to do this before going to bed each night and doesn't realize he is learning. The positive feedback the app gives him keeps him going. The only improvements I would suggest is that before giving the photo of the word they are trying to guess, give them a moment for the child to try on their own, maybe fade it in slowly. Also, when doing the writing allow the child to try it without a letter outline, maybe for a second attempt or have the guidelines fade out as well. I can't complain though, my son loves learning using this app...thanks.
