Now optimized for both phones and tablets, Kids Learn to Read (Preschool) is the long awaited sequel to our best-selling Kids ABC Phonics.
This paid version has 15 extra words in the first and the third activities as well as child-lock functionality that can be enabled in Preferences. (Please note that child lock functionality is not available on tablets).
Featured at the Google I/O developer conference in San Francisco, Kids Learn to Read is the latest child-pleasing addition to Intellijoy's best-selling reading curriculum series, and is preceded by Kids ABC Letters and Kids ABC Phonics.
Kids Learn to Read is a delightful game that invites preschool-aged children to practice blending sounds together to read and spell simple words, such as "dog", "sun", and "big".
In its three sections, children get to:
- learn to blend letter sounds into words by moving Tommy the Turtle across the letter bridge as each letter is sounded out and a word is formed and pronounced. Your kids can hand Tommy a skateboard to make him go faster as they become comfortable with blending the sounds.
- have fun practicing elementary reading as they are asked to fit Tommy's animal friends with skateboards and helmets
- make words in a way that's fun by turning real-looking blocks with letters on each side until the word is spelled out
If your children do not know the alphabet sounds yet, we recommend our Kids ABC Phonics app. And if your kids need to learn or practice the names of the letters, try our Kids ABC Letters app.
Every section is designed to let children enjoy success time after time and receive positive reinforcement from the likable teacher, so they want to keep learning. Once your child is involved and happy, you can relax, with the assurance that he or she is having a great time - and learning.

All sounds are pronounced individually. No blending, diagraphs or dipthongs. Not bad for very beginners, but not much use to struggling older children

Need more words, in 1st grade kids are expected to know far more than what's on this app.

My kids love this app! Very good entertainment for them whilst queueing at a theme park recently

5 stars if the word "BED" isn't misspelled on the Make Words game as "BEB". Adding more than 3-letter words would be wonderful, since app is paid for.

Very good but too short needs more levels and needs to get a little harder.

My little girl is almost 3 yrs old and loves this. For the first time she said "I can read!"
