5 apps in 1 with no in-app purchases. Let’s Get Ready to Read! is packed with fun and engaging activities focused on introducing your young learner to each letter of the alphabet and the sound it represents. Our research- based program was built on the knowledge that the most effective learning takes place when children are given multiple opportunities to apply and reinforce the skills they are learning.
Our wide variety of activities specifically designed to teach the fundamental skills necessary to become accomplished readers include:
•Letter/Sound Connection (upper and lower case)--Our multisensory method of teaching utilizes a systematic visual, tactile and auditory approach.
•Initial Consonant Sound Practice--The best predictor of early reading ability is a child’s understanding of how words are made up of sounds.
•Initial Short Vowel Sound Practice-- Learning the short vowels first is the best way to learn how to read. The short vowels are used in most English words. Learning the short vowels will enable your child to connect syllables and read words.
•Drawing Exercises—Reinforcing through visualization makes learning more concrete. There are strong similarities between the drawing process and learning the rules of written language.
•Picture Naming/Vocabulary Building--A critical component of your child's developing visual word recognition system. Developing an extensive vocabulary leads to greater language development and better comprehension of words in text.
•Handwriting Readiness—Activities designed to teach your child the basic shapes of the printed letter.
•Over-Sized Handwriting Practice--Oversized motions involving the use of the muscle in the shoulder link directly to the part of the brain responsible for patterning the “feel” of letters.
