Teaching and learning to read English with synthetic phonics for 3-year-olds to 5-year-olds

This app is intended to create phonemic awareness and to teach young readers how to read with synthetic phonics. Its simple and child-friendly interface offers young learners an engaging way to master the essential skills of phonics: phonemic awareness, letter-sound relationship, blending and segmenting.

8 lessons have been designed for this fun-filled app to guide young readers to read in a systematic way. These lessons are:

Lesson 1: s, a, t, p
Lesson 2: i, n, m, d
Lesson 3: g, o, c, k
Lesson 4: ck, e, u, r
Lesson 5: h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss
Lesson 6: j, v, w, x
Lesson 7: y, z, zz, qu
Lesson 8 : Mnemonic Aa-Zz, writing Aa-Zz

Lesson 8 is specially designed to teach children to read and write the letters Aa to Zz with the mnemonic techniques. It is a visual tool that uses a picture-word association to provide a memory bridge for children to remember sounds and letters.
