Learn to Become Confident Readers

Child, girl, reading, book, learning

Language and reading skills develop at a rapid pace during the preschool and early elementary years, from reading simple picture books containing only a few words to reading story books that contain only a few pictures. When selecting learn to read apps for your child, look for reading games for kids that help provide the basic building blocks of letters, sounds and words. When it comes to reading apps and reading activities, look for those that keep the reading experience active and engaging by giving kids a chance to explore different parts of a story, such as touching the different characters to hear their voices or interrupting the flow of the story to hear and practice an unfamiliar word. The best reading programs for kids in this age group often focus on phonics skills that will help your child learn to read and spell, while some cool reading games might even challenge your child to match rhyming words or make predictions of what a character might do in a story.
