Read Write Phonics


Teach your child to read and write the easy way!

Read Write Phonics teaches the 44 phonic sounds of the English language, how to blend the phonic sounds together to form words, and how to write the letters of the alphabet by tracing dotted letter forms!

- Read: learn the correct 44 phonic sounds of the English language!
- Write: learn to write the letters of the English alphabet, with star rewards!
- Phonics: learn how to blend the phonic sounds to form words!

Features:
Learn by doing: tap and swipe through the App listening to the correct sounds and blending the sounds into words.
Fun encouragement and reward stars are given in the Write section.
Clear and simple flash cards system with simple intuitive navigation.
Clear Sassoon font developed especially for children’s first books and traditional learning aids.
Clean design, there are no distracting images or sounds in the Write or Phonic sections.
Focus on learning the sounds and learning how to form letters, without distraction.
The example word cards in the Read section each use one simple bright word image.

Instructions:
Move through the App using the arrow keys, the speaker button replays sounds and the redo button restarts animation. The home key takes you up a menu level and the envelope key will open an email to us at Read Write Phonics.

The Read section contains a flash card for each of the 44 sounds, showing the letter or letter combination which represent them. Once the sound has played wait for the letter/s to animate into an example word, tapping the speaker button plays the sound or word again.

The Write section shows an example of how letters are written, then allows the child to try tracing the dotted letter, with a prompt where to begin and a prompt if they forget to dot the i or cross the ts! Then wait for your mark, 0 to 3 stars! The App marks the child's effort based on the smoothness of their line and the distance from the ideal line. Encouragement is always given even if no stars are achieved.

The Phonics section includes small, two and three letter words and big, four letter and above example words. Tapping the speaker button plays the full word, tapping each letter or letter combination pays the phonic sound. Swiping or stroking through the word plays the sounds in order blending or synthesising the word.

(Note: the ck sound has been included three times with cards, c, ck, and k all making the same phonic sound. qu and x also included for completeness but are actually consonant blends (k + w) and (k + s). The letters and letter combinations chosen for read write phonics are the most common ones and the ones taught first for example “ee” in “bee” instead of “y” in “many”)

Recent changes:
Version 1.0.3 Includes a fix for rendering problems on some Android 4.1 devices and a change to make write scoring easier and more consistent on different devices.

Version 1.0.2 Includes a change to stop the Phonics section automatically playing the word at a new card. This allows your child to try reading the word first, then tap the phonemes, then check the word by hitting the speaker or redo button!

Phonics - British pronunciation Very well designed. My 4 yrs old says it is his favourite game! He has additional needs so weren't initially sure about this educational game however he is ahead with reading and phonics now. Thank you for creating it! Also trying high frequency words. App runs very well on android 4.2.2 is, fusion5 extra tablet.

Great app for the price I was a bit worried after some of the reviews, but I'm so glad I took the risk. Thinking it's only £1.50 not expecting much, but it's actually really good app and even on my daughter's cheap android tablet, she can learn to read and write and actually really enjoys it. I'd deffo recommend for any 4 year old
