“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.  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. "One of my children’s favorite early reading apps" New York Times “Best app for learning phonics” iPad for Kids 2013 “This app feels much like a private tutoring session for early readers with emphasis on letter sounds and writing.” everythingmom.com -2013 Academics' Choice Smart Media Award -Parents’ Choice Recommended Award Winner -Editor's Choice Award 2011 from Children's Technology Review -“If you are working on phonics for your kids, this is the best application to have.” Technology in Education -“This app feels much like a private tutoring session for early readers with emphasis on letter sounds and writing.” everythingmom.com -“PocketPhonics is seriously educational and I think it’s a terrific tool for helping early readers. You can tell that a ton of thought and research was put into it and best of all, they talked and listened to teachers. It shows.” iPhoneMom.com -“When it comes to learning apps for young learners and early readers, there is no better choice than abc PocketPhonics." ipad-applications.neiia.com 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. By registering, parents and teachers can monitor kids’ progress online, and receive a weekly email on their child's progress. A child’s progress is tracked across multiple devices. 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 simplifying the management of iPads in schools. If a child switches iPads, they automatically continue learning from where they finished previously.  Phonics (letter sounds) help children to read by understanding the sounds that letters make. The Congressionally-mandated National Reading Panel concluded that “children who have phonics instruction read better and spell better than other children”. Letter sounds (how we say the letters when we use them in words) 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.
