My Word! Reader - Are Whales Smart, or What? is a groundbreaking app for the iPad based on sound educational and literacy theory that is designed to improve literacy skills in underachieving students. This app will be an essential tool for literacy learning for education and home markets. Simple to use, but sophisticated in design, it incorporates word analysis, phonics, writing skills, word recognition, comprehension and spelling in a series of dynamic, engaging, and delightful “word games” that are rooted in the high-interest, but easy-to-read story, Are Whales Smart, or What?
“Are Whales Smart, or What? takes students one step further in improving their literacy skills, by challenging their thinking and engaging them in wonderfully imaginative skill building activities that expand their vocabulary, and teach about word analysis, phonics, spelling and writing. Because the activities are fun to do, students want to play them again and again, thus reinforcing their skills and solidifying their mastery,” said Dr. Selma Wassermann, CEO of Wrinkled Pants.
Are Whales Smart, or What? is the second application in the My Word! Reader series. It follows Are Bees Smart, or What? also available on iTunes. Additional titles will be released shortly.
