Brand new in the Apple App Store, PocketPhonics Stories (opens in new tab) is a step-by-step reading program incorporating 42 storybooks for your iPad. It is based on the award-winning PocketPhonics app that’s used in over 2000 schools. With this app children will learn how to recognize letter sounds, identify how letter sounds are blended together to make words, and learn how to write letters.
After mastering a group of letter sounds, students will put them into practice by reading storybooks with those sounds plus a few difficult words to push them further. Children can tap a word they don’t know and this app keeps track of times when they need extra help. PocketPhonics Stories supports children as they apply phonics skills when they are reading. Independent research supports the power of the PocketPhonics program and they even offer free trials of the app for schools
