Want your child to learn phonics and word building? KinderTown suggests using Simplex Spelling Phonics 1 & 2 with activities.
KinderTown, is a great tool for finding the best educational apps for kids, just released a new feature called "Power Packs" which busy parents will love. Each Power Pack is a mini teaching guide tailored to helping parents teach their children new skills using apps, activities, assessments and other materials. The power packs are aligned to the KinderTown learning map and focus on developing skills that are important to children ages 3 to 8 years old. The goal of power packs is not only to help parents guide their children's learning, but to help them combine mobile app play with traditional play and create more educational experiences at home that don't involve technology at all.
KinderTown chose our apps, Simplex Spelling Phonics 1 & 2, for learning phonics and word building and pairs our apps with other activities in Phonics Power Pack, Levels 1st and 2nd. In the level 1st power pack, you'll find activities and apps that support advanced reading excellence. As you spend the next weeks and months focused in this area, your child will develop knowledge, fluency and independence as a reader. The activities and apps in this power pack take little time to set up or prepare for. Each tip and suggestion can be used in the time you already spend reading and writing with your child.
