“As an elementary school teacher that has been teaching reading for 10+ years, I’d say this program offers enough various exercises and approaches for a child to become a skilled reader. I do believe that if a grade level child worked 15 minutes a day on this app, they’d be able to develop the proper skills to begin reading with fluency.”Academics Choice logo

“The systematic and sequential approach to teaching reading is wonderful! This app covers so many of the best approaches to teaching reading AND my students enjoy it! I love hearing my students say: 1).I only need three more stars to finish the level! 2) CanI do PocketPhonics, please? 3) Yes, I finished another level! They love receiving their certificates. Also, they are making excellent progress in literacy!!!”
