Level 1(A) Library – Learn To Read Books comes with four Level 1 books and offers five more books as an in-app purchase.
Books at Level 1 are simple pattern books. A similar sentence appears on every page of a given book. These repeating language patterns allow children to make use of memory in their first attempts at reading. As well, the more often a child reads a particular word, the more securely the appearance of that word gets connected to its meaning in the child’s brain. The close correspondence between text and pictures, which is found in Level 1 books, also helps beginning readers experience success. Level 1 books are designed for children who are just beginning to learn how to read – like those in Kindergarten or early Grade One, for instance.
Each book presents one story. When using any of our Learn To Read Books, simply touch a word to hear it. The sounds 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.
Also included in the Learn To Read Library are high-frequency word flashcards for each story. We suggest that the 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 in 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 disallow this feature for the child, simply toggle the mute button on the device.
Reading is a very important life-skill. 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.
