Since my kids enjoy playing the iPads, I like to have plenty of educational apps available. The past few weeks, we have been checking out the new Phonics Museum App from Veritas Press as part of the Homeschool Review Crew. I was eager to let my little girls try this phonics program since we use the Veritas Press Bible program with our older kids and really like it.
About the Program:
During our homeschool day, I require my children to only play educational games if they finish with their work early. As mentioned above, we are already fans of products from Veritas Press, and now the Phonics Museum App is no exception! We have been using the program with both our 6 and just-turned-8 year old daughters the past few weeks. My 8 year old has struggled with reading until lately, and I think she has greatly benefitted from this program even though she is outside the recommended age bracket. My 6 year old is does well with reading, but I think that she also has been succeeding with the Phonics Museum App. We were given a year subscription to the program and I’m excited to see how much they will improve over the next year.
When I asked my 6 year old what she liked best about the program, she said that she likes the videos. She explained that she liked watching the teacher, Miss Biddle, talk about the sounds and that it helped her learn.
With my 8 year old, we had her work through the program to try and solidify her knowledge of phonics and build her confidence in reading.
Both girls seemed to enjoy the program and didn’t complain about learning through the app. I also appreciate that it is pretty self-explanatory and doesn’t require parental assistance once it’s loaded properly. This frees me up to help the bigger kids with their school while the young ones are happy learning.
Periodically, the program will email me about my children’s status in the program. I really like this option so I can keep track of how they are progressing. If you prefer to not get the emails, you can unsubscribe easily.
