The best new reading app to teach your kid to read.
Teaching your kindergarten or pre-k kid to read just got a whole lot easier. Reading World brings our unique TIPS to iOS and Android, so your child can learn to read easier, faster and with more joy.
A Super Fun Reading App
for Real Reading Progress
Reading World (for iOS and Android) uses our powerful TIPS system that allows every single word your child encounters to be decoded easily. The game can teach your child to decode words in just a few weeks.
Learn Phonics. Better Phonics.
The first step in the reading journey starts with letters and their sounds. Normally, this means learning the "A" in CAT and calling it a day. But what about the "A" in AIR? or SMALL? or TUNA? or FAR? What about the "O" in SOME? By teaching these sounds explicitly, and using TIPS so kids know the right sounds to make, we build these strong reading foundations that will serve us later on.
Blending in "Old" English is important, but it's not the whole ballgame. There are just too many exceptions kids need to learn to make simple decoding and blending a productive strategy. With TIPS, we throw those exceptions out the window. Every single word can be decoded with simple blending, moving from left to right and making the right sound for each letter as it appears in that particular word.
Rapid Word Decoding
Once your child grasps the concept of blending and develops a working knowledge of the key letter sounds, they start to pick up speed and build confidence decoding. What starts as a process that can take as long as a minute, becomes effortless and fast.
Reading on Sight
Instead of rote memorization of hundreds of "sight" words, reading with TIPS is a natural process where children memorize words because they decode them repeatedly while reading them. This is the same process that happens in simple languages, where kids typically learn to read in less than half the time we do in the US.
The Games of Reading World
To teach the skills above, Reading World includes a growing library of games that help your child work on the specific skills they need to become capable, efficient readers.
Kids learn to read faster because there is less to memorize. Instead of learning 200 sight words, with just 10 TIPS your child can already decode thousands of words.
Kids learn to read with more joy because it is easier. Every word a child reads follows the rules. There are no exceptions, so kids make fewer mistakes as they learn to read.
In every other country with an alphabet, children teach themselves to read by decoding. With TIPS, we make that same process possible in English.
In our first pilot, we saw kids who learn to read with TIPS make 900% faster progress than the control data and our first group of four year olds can read at a 1st grade level.
