App Store Description


The Hidden Picture Aviary contains pretty birds, butterflies and animals, but it also contains the important Zoo-phonics Animals. Look carefully for them. When a Zoo-phonics Animal Picture or a Merged Animal Letter is found, just click on it. The letter will appear on the sign near Zoophonia and she will Signal and sound the letter for the child. Notice that the Animal Letter or Animal Picture will brighten (come out of hiding) so that the child can see it. Zeke gives a lot of encouragement throughout. If the child needs to hear the letter sound again, click on Zoophonia. Look at the bottom of the screen for the pair of binoculars. If you click on to them they will help the child find the Animal Letters.

Lesson Objectives. The child will:

- recognize the Zoo-phonics Animal Letters, letter shapes, Alliterative Animal Names and letter sounds
- develop observation skills and critical thinking
- learn to listen carefully and follow directions
- make decisions
- learn how to navigate and manipulate interactive elements on a screen, using eye-hand coordination

About Zoo-phonics

Teach your students the alphabet in TWO WEEKS! Faster than you ever expected your students will be reading, spelling and writing!

The Zoo-phonics Multisensory Language Arts Program is a kinesthetic, multi-modal approach to learning all aspects of language arts, including vocabulary development and articulation, based on phonics and phonemic awareness.

The principle of Zoo-phonics maximizes understanding, memory, utilization and transference to all areas of the reading, spelling and writing process in a playful and concrete manner.

Zoo-phonics is a method developed to make children strong readers and spellers using a “phono” (hearing), “oral” (speaking), “visual” (seeing), “kinesthetic” (moving), and tactile (touching)—whole brain approach. Students actually learn the sounds of the alphabet and advanced phonemic concepts through an easily understood, concrete method of presentation.

Zoo-phonics uses animals drawn in the shapes of the letters for ease in memory. A related body movement is given for each letter. This concrete approach cements the sounds to the shapes of the letters. Lowercase letters and their sounds are taught first (needed 95% of the time in text), capital letters and letter names are taught later.

Zoo-phonics also provides a springboard for all other academia such as math, art, music, cooking/nutrition, social studies, science, grooming, physical education and sensory/drama.

Every aspect of the program has been field-tested and found to be effective. Educational research repeatedly supports the focus of phonics in early reading programs, as well as the educational benefits of pictorial mnemonics and kinesthetic approaches to learning that are unique to Zoo-phonics.

Currently Zoo-phonics is used throughout the United States and internationally as a highly effective language arts program.
