Endless Reader

** App Store's Editor's Choice **


*From the team at ORIGINATOR - the creators of the beloved Endless Alphabet and Sesame Street's Monster at the End of This Book and Another Monster.... Originator is a team of passionate artists and engineers dedicated to the best education+entertainment apps for kids.*

As a follow-up to Endless Alphabet, set the stage for early reading success with Endless Reader! This app introduces "sight words", the most commonly used words in school, library, and children's books. Kids need to recognize these words by sight in order to achieve reading fluency. Recognizing sight words is advantageous for beginning readers because many of these words have unusual spelling, cannot be sounded out using phonics knowledge, and often cannot be represented using pictures.

Kids will have a blast learning sight words and their context and usage with the adorable Endless monsters. Each word features an interactive word puzzle with letters that come alive, and then a sentence puzzle with words that become what they describe. See the word "dog" as a barking dog, and the word "up" reach for the sky!

** NOTE: You must be online and have sufficient disk space while running the app to get all words in the app. **

Features:
- 6 words free to try with additional word packs available for purchase.
- Delightful animations reinforce sight recognition of words in a fun and interactive way.
- Word puzzles reinforce spelling using lower-case letters and the sentence puzzles teach definition and usage (in addition to sight recognition).
- 3D Touch on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus makes letters and words react in an extra special way!
- Endless Reader was designed with your children in mind. There are no high scores, failures, limits or stress. Your children can interact with the app at their own pace.

Short Vowel Word Study

Teaching kids to spell includes much more than a list of spelling words students should memorize and write on a spelling test each week. Effective spelling methods do not rely on rote memorization, but are developmentally appropriate and hands-on. Word Study is a widely research-based spelling approach whose purpose is to “examine words in order to reveal the logic and consistencies within [the] written language system and to help student achieve mastery in recognizing, spelling, and defining specific words” (Words Their Way, Bear, et. al, 2012).

Word Study is developmentally appropriate because it takes into consideration what the student understands or does not yet understand about spellings and word meanings to discover where spelling instruction should start. This is accomplished by looking at the student’s misspellings of certain word patterns (from simple words like man to more complex words such as multitude). It is hands-on in that it requires students to analyze, manipulate, and create meaningful and logical generalizations of how word spellings work.

Short Vowels Word Study app is based on the Word Study approach described above and is for students in the late Letter Name-Alphabetic Spellers to early Within Word Pattern Spellers, according to the spelling development levels of Words Their Way.

Short Vowels Word Study helps kids learn the spelling patterns related to word families and longer short vowel words through developmentally appropriate and hands-on spelling activities.

Short Vowels Word Study teaches kids who are ready for:
> word families,
> short vowel words (CVC), and
> longer short vowel words with blends and diagraphs (CCVC and CVCC)

The Spelling Activities Included:
SORT IT - Sorting words based on their spelling pattern.
FIND IT - Analyzing words based on their patterns and finding the one that does not fit based on its phonics sound or visual pattern.
SPELL IT - Manipulating letter tiles to spell short vowel words.
WRITE IT - Spelling short vowel words by tracing and writing the word.

Short Vowels Word Study Bonus Sections
- a parent section that explains the theory behind the spelling activities included in the app
- a “Word Fun” section, where kids can play hands-on spelling games after earning stars from their spelling activities

Sight Words - An early reading...

Welcome to Sight Words, a fun-filled adventure where children can learn to recognize, read, and write up to 320 sight words!

The beloved game of Hide-and-Seek is the central point of the app because it symbolically explores the cognitive skills necessary to remember sight words such as: visual attention, the morphology of the forest setting (i.e. the letters in a word), active listening, and of course visual memorization.

Developed with the The English Common Core State Standards in mind, this app will ensure that children have increased exposure to high frequency words that appear in text. These interactions will enable them to acquire the words into their long term memory. Our list was chosen based on Dolch’s and Fry’s compilations which account for over 50% of words that appear in printed text.

Recommended Ages 3-8

***Parent's Choice Silver Award Winner Fall 2015***
***By tapping into every kid's love of hide-and-seek, your child will practice the cognitive skills necessary to remember sight words. Parents.com***

FEATURES
• 10 timeless mini-games
• 320 sight words spread across 5 levels (PreK- Grade 3)
• Algorithm that chooses words based on Hermann Ebbinghaus’ memory theories
• Choose to play with UPPERCASE or lowercase letters

• Multi-user interface
• Accessible to children with disabilities (VoiceOver compatible)
• Universal app for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch

Pirate Phonics 1 : Kids learn ...

Rated 5/5 and Recommended by educationalappstore.com, official advisor to the Tablets for Schools scheme.

Pirate Phonics offers fun and Phonics for kids who are just learning to read/recognise letters and simple CVC words. Pirate phonics uses the concept of a child’s dream
about pirates as the theme of an educational game to develop skills in the
basic phonics. It is a very large App which uses 5 ‘treasure islands’ with a
‘phonic’ route map across each island to recover the treasure stolen by
Blackbeard the pirate. Each phonic is introduced by a pirate with ‘phonic
challenges’. By passing the challenges coins are collected and the child heads
towards where Blackbeard has hidden the treasure. Each island is completed when
the children use phonic challenges to open the treasure chest, but of course
that’s not the end!

Pirate Phonics is a very large App which has been designed to support the first stages of phonic learning over an extended period, at least several weeks. Each phonic is emphasised through the use of several ‘picture words’ which are deliberately read slowly by the narrator. Once a phonic has been unlocked and learned the child can revisit that island and phonic at any time. The whole App introduces more than 300 words.

The 5 Treasure Islands introduce the phonics 1 at a time before using blends to form simple words (mainly CVC). Phonics introduced in this App include:
•s a t p d
•n m i g o
•c e u r h
•k b f l j
•v w x y z
•ck ff qu ss zz
•ll ch sh th ng th

If your child just wants to learn words related to any individual phonic then that can be selected from the ‘extras’ area on the start screen without going through every island. Another similar Pirate Phonics App will be released soon to complete the whole phonics spectrum; this will focus even more on blending, word building and reading groups of words.

Pirate Phonics 2 is available now!

Note : This app does not support iOS 5.1

The Word Monsters: Learn to Re...

Developed by experienced industry professionals for use at home or in a school setting, The Word Monsters provides explicit alignments to the US Common Core State Standards—download now and try the first book for free!

Main Features

•Richly designed visuals and engaging stories featuring 5 quirky fun-loving monster characters, each with their own special ability

•Developed in accordance with the US Common Core State Standards and addressing the three main strands: Literature, Foundational Skills, and Language

•Synchronized professional voiceover audio with text highlighting

•Ability to decode or "sound out" individual words by touching them

•Interactive screen elements, providing additional engagement and vocabulary

•Character speech and accompanying speech bubbles for richer reading

•Standards correlated phonics, vocabulary, and comprehension instruction on every screen via an animated "Reading Buddy" character

•"Read on Your Own" or "Read to Me Mode" with automatic event triggering to allow for greater accessibility

•Three standards correlated activities at the end of each book focusing on phonics, vocabulary, and reading comprehension

•Accompanying Teaching Notes and Student Print Activities available free from our website

Some Key Features in Detail

Audio Reinforcement
Every sentence in a Word Monster story can be read aloud by touching the audio icon to the left of the sentence, with highlighting of each word so that students can associate the printed word with its sound. Each decodable word can also be touched to sound it out e.g., touching the word "Tag" will result in the audio sounding out each individual letter – /T/ /A/ /G/ – before blending the sounds together to say "Tag."

Reading Buddy
Each screen in the Word Monster books features optional supplementary instruction around phonemic awareness, print concepts, reading comprehension, vocabulary, and sight words. This instruction is aligned to the US Common Core State Standards. Some of this instruction takes a question/answer format, with the Reading Buddy playing the role of a teacher or parent prompting the student and keeping him/her at the edge of his/her learning curve.

Interactive Animations
Every screen in the Word Monster books is enriched with interactive objects, each of which can be touched to trigger a fun animation. In the process, the object is named in the audio and the corresponding word appears on screen. The goal of these interactions is to entertain the child, while at the same time increasing vocabulary by introducing more challenging words in an engaging way.

Character Speech
Children can interact directly with the characters on screen by touching them to elicit a response in the form of a short phrase that relates to events in the story. This speech is simultaneously displayed in a speech bubble to support the audio. This feature allows the user to engage with the story in another fun way, while also introducing richer, more challenging vocabulary than that contained in the main decodable text.

OPINIONS OF USERS

Nicely done...recommended!
I really liked how you could grade content to this book, depending on the level of a child's competency. There are no IAPs or ads, and I would definitely recommend this to families and teachers.
K-5
Está muy bien!
Parece un cuento, pero es mucho más. Mi hija ha de cinco años mejorado la lectura y disfruta haciendo las actividades. Es genial para después que han aprendido el abc.

Curious George Goes Camping by...

**A Children eBook Awards Silver Winner - Best Language Development and Early Childhood App**
**A National Parenting Publications Awards Silver Winner - Children’s Products**
Discover the Great Outdoors and get your child ready to learn how to read with Curious George in this new entertaining story!
Based on Margret Rey and H. A. Rey’s children’s book and the hit PBS KIDS TV series, this animated story featuring Curious George is part of iRead With, a new read-aloud program created to foster language development and help preschoolers get ready to read.

George tries to be helpful, but he of course just ends up upsetting a nearby camper. As he’s hiding in the woods, he meets a forest creature who catapults the mischievous monkey into a chain of even more outrageous events!

“This perennial children’s favorite offers some great read-aloud options, putting it a cut above most ebooks for young children. Curious George is lovable, as always, and the app encourages many early reading and language skills." - Best Apps For Kids

“I love how the app helps young children develop their speech and language skills, as well as their vocabulary and comprehension, while reading through a fun story. I would definitely recommend this app to parents of preschoolers, especially those with fans of Curious George!" - The iPhone Mom

iRead With animated stories encourage a participative reading experience engaging both child and parent. This new shared-reading method was created in conjunction with University of McGill University Child Phonology Lab, where extensive research shows that the most effective read-alouds are those where children are actively involved.


READ AND TALK
Narrative sequences are punctuated by prompts and conversation starters, inviting parent and child to talk about the story and the world around us.

PRIMARY SKILLS DEVELOPED
Foundational literacy skills, speech and oral language, vocabulary, phonological awareness, emergent literacy concepts, narrative skills and comprehension strategies.

TAP WORDS
Touch Living Words to trigger sounds and animations!

ENGAGING ANIMATIONS
Animations are tied to the story to create a meaningful experience. Tap them to find a surprise!

PERSONALIZE YOUR READING EXPERIENCE
Choose the characters for your avatars, select the level of difficulty for the prompts and set your reading options.

RECORD YOUR OWN VOICE
Important words can be recorded. Children can also create and record their own dialogue lines.

STORYTELLING ACTIVITY
Play with Curious George and his friends and create your own animated stories in the Story Theater. This activity develops storytelling and narrative skills, and is also a lot of fun!

PROFESSIONAL NARRATION
Choose to have the story automatically narrated, always after a first shared-reading experience.

READ THE STORY AGAIN!
There are three reading levels with more living words to discover, and new prompts to engage conversation.
