abc PocketPhonics is worth checking out if you are looking for a basic sound phonemic approach for children who are just beginning to put initial and ending sounds together with a vowel filler. abc PocketPhonics keeps track of a player’s score and will not let a player advance without mastery. It introduces sounds slowly. It presents letter sounds rather than the letters themselves and encourages the child to merge the sounds into words. This approach is backed up by research which shows that children can successfully learn to read before they know letter names.

The multiple choice questions avoid putting more than one right sound alternative. ex: “c” and “k” and “ck” do not appear together.

 

You can adjust settings for writing styles, upper, lowercase or cursive. ZanerBloser style is most often used in schools, however DʼNealian is available. Cursive is usually introduced near the end of second grade; however, many children who have been identified with learning disabilities are exposed sooner. We recommend using lowercase first.
