Learn ABC Phonics : Extra part of "Read With Pen" series - apps that will teach your toddler to read!

Our tests showed that 2-year-olds prefer connecting dots to drawing lines. This is why our letter-tracing is in fact the dot-to-dot system. Children that young may still have trouble with deciding, where to start touching the screen - in our app, they only have to swipe through the points to connect them, regardless of where the movement began. The dots will connect as soon as your child drags the line near them, he or she does not have to be exact.  Please, bear in mind though that the letter sounds are more significant that the letter shapes. The ability to recognize letter sounds plays a key role in the process of learning to read. This is why we recommend this app for kids learning to read using Phonemic Awareness method.
