Teach your Monster to Read

This is a fantastic APP that you can either download to your tablet or play on the computer.  It is fun way for your child to continue their reading journey as it teaches them phonics along the way.  You can select the difficulty level and it starts at the very first sounds; s a t p i n m d g o c k and progresses on to the phase 5 sounds we are learning in Year 1.

Both my 3 year old and my 6 year old boys are really enjoying using the app.
