Pictureless - "Learn to Read" Flash Cards

Pictureless - "Learn to Read" Flash Cards

PlayReap Studios

Teach your kids how to read English words using this fun app.

Pictureless is a flashcard app that consists of nothing but words. Words without picture so kids actually learn how to read English rather than associating words with pictures.

--== Main focus ==--

- Phonics Words -
Words that aim to teach the letter sounds and then builds up to blending these sounds together to achieve full pronunciation of whole words

- Camera Words -
A group of words in the English language that children like to use in their speech and in their writing that cannot be decoded or need advanced skills to do so. For example: was, the and friend. Children want to read and spell these words right at the beginning of their schooling.

- Sight Words -
Commonly used words that young children are encouraged to memorize as a whole by sight, so that they can automatically recognize these words in print without having to use any strategies to decode.

There are two modes :

Learn : Tilt device forward and backward to go to the next or previous card. Teach the student by reading out loud to them. There is no time limit in this mode and you can learn at your own pace.
Swipe the card to finish.

Play : This is like a test, the student will try to read as many cards as possible correctly in 1 minute. Tilt forward if he/she reads it correctly otherwise backwards for an incorrect answer or pass.
Swipe the card to finish.

--== Extra Features ==--

- Parents can create their own custom deck if they find the built-in decks are not enough for their needs.

- Parental Gate : There are some deck of flashcards require in-app purchase to unlock. Parents need not to worry as kids won't be able to accidentally purchase them easily since we implemented a "Parental Gate".

================================

Feed the hungry dog to learn spelling, save the Wordaliens, get the gears moving and more! Developed in cooperation with educational specialists, Action Sight Words Games helps children to become confident readers by teaching them in a fun, interactive way high-frequency words from the popular Dolch Sight Words List.

================================
WHY TO TEACH SIGHTWORDS?
================================

Sight words are words in English language that do not have a simple one-to-one correspondence between sounds and letters -- in other words, they have to be memorized and instantly recognized -- recognized “on sight,” so to speak. In an average, non-technical text, they comprise over 50-70% of total words.

Therefore, children who can quickly recognize sight words can read better because while they read, they can focus on inferring the words they do not know while still understanding most of the grammatical structure of the text. Learning sight words is thus a crucial step towards an enormous reading improvement.

Action Sight Words Games application offers children an easy-to-use interface and a grand choice of six fun educational games through which children can acquire mastery over this subject matter.

================================
6 GAMES INCLUDED
================================

1) WORD MACHINE
Control the Word Machine. Supply all the words that need to be produced by tapping on the words called.

2) SPELLING
Your dog is hungry! Make cans to feed him! To make a can, drag the letter cards to their correct place and make a word you have just heard pronounced.

3) BINGO
Make a Bingo to get a ticket for Aliens back home! Tap on the word corresponding to the one that you heard pronounced. Once you have matched cards from one side of the board to the next... Bingo! All Starfall Word Aliens are back home!

4) MEMORY GAME
Match the sounds to correct word forms! To do so, tap on one of the speakers, hear the word, and then select one of the cards below with a correct word. Do it for all words!

5) GEARS
Tap on one of the speakers on the screen, hear the word pronounced, and place the word across the speaker. Repeat for all words to see wonderful gears animation.

6) FLASH CARDS
Practice in the Flash Card mode. List through the words and top on the cards to hear the words pronounced again and again!

================================
ADDITIONAL FEATURES
================================

- Advanced word management system
- Avatar selection
- Choice of capitalized words and upper-case or lower-case letters
- Access to best scores

Level C(3-4) Library - Learn To Read Books

Level C(3-4) Library - Learn To Read Books

Visions Encoded Inc.

Get a complete set of Level C(3-4) books for less than 1/2 the price of Scholastic leveled PDF books and less than 1/3 the cost of print books. Plus, these books are interactive! Remember to check out the Apple iTunes educational discount for classroom teachers - get an additional 50% off!

Level C(3-4) Library - Learn To Read Books contains six Level 3 books followed by six Level 4 books. 
Books at Levels 3 and 4 are simple books. A similar sentence or a pair of similar sentences is used throughout a given book. These repeating language patterns allow children to make use of memory at this early stage of reading development. As well, the more often a child reads a particular word, the more secure the connection between that word’s appearance and its meaning becomes. The close correspondence between text and pictures, found in Levels 3 and 4, also helps beginning readers experience success. Level C books are designed for children who are just beginning to learn how to read – like children in Kindergarten or early Grade One or children who are learning English as an additional language.


Each book presents one story. When using any of our Learn To Read Books, the beginning reader should place his/her finger just below each word and then point to each word in succession while reading. Tapping just below any word causes the word to light up and allows the child to hear the word spoken aloud. The words have been recorded in Manitoba, Canada. If words are pronounced differently in the country/region where you live, simply use the custom recording feature and record the words in your own voice. Custom recorded audio can be transferred to any of our "Learn To Read" iOS/Mac apps. The transfer can be done using email or iTunes file sharing.


Also included in the Learn To Read Library are high-frequency word flashcards for each story. We suggest that these sight words be practiced before a story is attempted. If a child has difficulty with a word, he/she can simply touch the word to hear it!

Since words in both the sight words section and the story can be tapped to be heard, it is possible for a child to practice the words and read the story without assistance from a teacher or parent. To turn the sound off, simply toggle the physical mute switch on the device.



To learn to read, children need:
1. to learn letter sounds;

2. to memorize high-frequency sight words;

3. to read books at their level.



Through the use of Learn to Read Books and a letter-sound app such as "Z is for Zebra", these three key components of learning to read can be taught and practiced on an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad.

The authors of Learn to Read Books are Celesta Thiessen and Francie Humby. Both are certified teachers. Celesta has a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Education. She has written early chapter books, novels for teens and for adults, and numerous short stories. Francie has a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Education, and a Master of Education in Special Education. As an Early Years teacher, she has thirty-six years of experience in teaching young children to read. In writing these Learn to Read books, Celesta and Francie made extensive use of the following resources:

Pinnell, Gay Su & Fountas, Irene C. (2007). The Continuum of Literacy Learning, Grades K-8: Behaviors and Understandings to Notice, Teach, and Support. Portsmouth, NH: Heinemann.

Hear and Blend the Alphabet – Reading Readiness Made Fun and Easy With Phonemic Awareness, Letter Knowledge, and Blending All Rolled Into One

Hear and Blend the Alphabet – Reading Readiness Made Fun and Easy With Phonemic Awareness, Letter Knowledge, and Blending All Rolled Into One

Sound Reasoning Learning Solutions, LLC

In order to read new words, children need to 1) see letters 2) think sounds and 3) blend those sounds together. This app breaks up those tasks so young children can practice the last one, blending sounds together, even if they don’t yet know the sounds of letters. This app allows four and five year olds to be successful at this foundational skill and ensures they start out using the correct part of their brain to avoid dyslexia. Children hear the separated sounds of simple three-letter words as the letters appear. Then they choose the picture that represents that word. Correct answers get an encouraging sound or a funny video, and wrong answers teach. Meanwhile, they are absorbing letter-sound relationships, developing phonemic awareness, and learning how to segment sounds into words--the key to spelling success!
