‘Learn With Homer’ is Recommended Children’s App of the Week

Learn with Homer is today’s Recommended Children’s App of the Week. The iOS app is designed to help young children learn how to read. The app mixes phonics lesson with classic children’s literature, science field trips, and interactive features that encourage preschoolers to draw and make recordings.

The app is free, but it requires you to purchase different reading lessons to really get into it. Here is more about it from iTunes:

Our comprehensive program covers the five pillars of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Interactive lessons begin by guiding children to hear, identify, and manipulate sounds. In time your little learner will master 44 phonemes—every sound in the English language—and use them in phonics to unlock words.

What children’s apps do you recommend? Please add it to our Recommended Apps for Kids directory. To share an app, fill out our simple form below.
