I’ve spent a lot of money in the past on reading programs for her. She just didn’t care but this one she loved, I think it really built her confidence too. Now she is reading signs, grabbing books, and writing. This is HUGE!! This app is only $10 too. Well worth it by a long shot!!
Here is a little more about it and you can even try it for free.
All 52 lessons contain the proven step-by-step material your student needs to develop to the first grade reading level – guaranteed. For over a century, this material has worked again and again for students of all levels, backgrounds, and abilities. Now the material has been revamped for the modern era, made simpler and easier to access than ever before. Your student can progress to the first grade reading level no matter what his or her circumstances may be.
- The Phonics and Reading with McGuffey App is carefully crafted to:
- Ensure no expert phonics supervisor is needed for students to gain maximum value from the lessons
- Work for any literacy level
- Act as your own personalized tutor, except in a computer
- Let students set their own pace, repeating or slowing down lessons as much as they like
- Guide your student step-by-step through reading and spelling practice
- Provide multi-sense learning including sound, vision, and motion to appeal to a wide variety of learning styles
- Utilize the power of synthetic phonics – the dyslexia-busting learning technique
- Be simple and easy to use for students at any level
The app is built from the source material of the most successful education textbook of all time, McGuffey’s Eclectic Primer Revised Edition, which has taught tens of millions of students the joy of reading.
Billionaire Jim Rogers uses it to educate his own children, saying, “The generations which made America rich and great all grew up reading the McGuffey’s readers.” A big part of the problem with adult illiteracy is simple embarrassment. It’s hard for students to gain momentum, because they already feel so far behind. This app gives older as well as younger students the freedom and self-direction to learn at their own pace, even without supervision.
This independence helps to develop a snowball of self-confidence, which pushes their learning forward at an ever-faster pace. Now that the lite version can be upgraded to the full version’s capabilities, you may want to try it out first. If you are a bulk buyer of educational software, this edition of Phonics and Reading with McGuffey is the one you will want.
