Is Endless Reader good?

Endless Reader app is great for helping children learn and internalize basic phonic skills, and put them to use in a simple, interactive way.

The children really engaged with this app and even 3 year olds were able to successfully complete the letters and sentences. It was lovely to see the children so engaged with learning. From an expert perspective this app clearly helps children with literacy skills from recognising letters and sight words to the concept of words within sentences. 

Preschool kids will love the cuddly monsters and animated sight words, which act out there definitions in order to increase engagement and retention of common sight words. Each word is presented as a card inside a monster's mouth. Kids scroll through the cards to choose the word they want to explore. Read aloud to kids and let them fill in certain sight words (start with letting them read the word "the" in a short picture book. 

The Endless Reader app also uses interactive puzzles to underscore the definition and usage of words.

Endless Reader is a follow-up app to Endless Alphabet, which used a similar format to teach phonics and vocabulary. Endless Alphabet was arguably the more effective of the two apps, however, as the Endless Reader app can confuse kids by mixing phonics and sight word instruction. 

Sight words are often taught that way because sounding them out letter by letter doesn't work; the word “Taught”, for example, can't be sounded out letter by letter without needlessly confusing the preschoolers this app is designed for.

Endless Reader is safe for preschool children, who will find the animations delightful and engaging. There are possibly more effective and affordable mobile apps for teaching sight words to preschoolers. 

The Pros of using Endless Reader

  • High engagement for children, including 3-year-olds.
  • Effective in teaching literacy skills.
  • Animations increase engagement and retention.
  • Safe and delightful for preschool children.
  • Interactive elements reinforce learning.
