Homer: Kids Learn to Read App

Price: iPhone/iPad - Free

Teacher Overview

This top-rated, research-backed app motivates kids ages 2 to 8 to love reading by building on what they already know and tapping into the topics that most interest them. 

Teacher Review

Even though a Simpsons early education app would be more fun, Learn With Homer will do a better job teaching your kid how to sound out words. (Doh!) Unleash your kid’s reading abilities using Homer’s speak-and-spell animation and voice recordings that give them feedback on pronunciation. The app also targets younger kids struggling with speech and language issues, and allows adults to keep tabs via progress reports. Just like how your company monitors your Facebook time.

Kids can learn foundational reading skills such as basic letter sounds, letter and word recognition, critical thinking, and reading comprehension. By reading or listening to the stories, kids can also learn about animals, world cultures, music, and more.
