As parents, it was just too hard to explain to our kids that the ‘C’ in OCEAN sounds like “SH”, in RACE like an “S”, in CELLO a “CH” and a good old “C” in COOK. How about the A’s in A SMALL AIRPLANE OF ANGRY ARMY GORILLAS? That “A” makes six different sounds!!
Reading World is a fun, interactive educational game designed to teach kids 2-7 years of age how to read. ReadingWorld is designed to be so amazingly easy and inspiration-educational that without any guidance from an adult, the average four year old can be reading words in a few minutes, even if they have never read before. Visuals are rich and engaging, but content is key. This is a true learning game, not a game where kids also learn. Reward animations for correct answers are dynamic, cute, and wonderful. It is a playful app that represents the absolute highest quality of digital learning possible for their kid.
Phonics is great. But it’s not enough. So we made something better. We made TIPS™.
TIPs are tiny accent marks, added to letters to help guide kids to the right pronunciation. We teach this explicitly, so kids learn a TIP for S making a Z sound or C making an S sound. Once they learn just 30 TIPS, they can sound out over half of the most important words in English. Because the TIPs are consistent, kids make almost no errors. They have a lot more fun and are more engaged in the learning process. And so they learn faster.
Most important, TIPs are subtle. This means that as kids master reading with TIPS, they are able to seamlessly transition to efficient sight-reading of traditional text.
