Ryder will be going into Kindergarden this year. And I have to say, I’m a bit nervous. Kindergarten is a big deal! They learn to read and write this year, and I’m doing everything I can to make these major milestones fun for him! Thanks to my social media friends, I discovered Learn With Homer. Learn with Homer is a complete, comprehensive literacy program for children ages three to six.
Learn with Homer’s design is unique. It combines learning to read with learning to understand the world. Drawing from prominent evidence based research, the app rigorously exposes children to the building blocks of reading and also allows them to experience the fun of being able to read. Crucially, it also gives children the science and history knowledge that allow their later comprehension to soar. These connected experiences promote learning on and off iPad.
“The single biggest predictor of children’s academic success is their reading level at third grade,” said founder of Learn With Homer Stephanie Dua. “We want to help kids and parents in the early years, when it matters most. So every element of Learn with Homer serves a learning purpose. But the app is also fun. I recently downloaded the app and Ryder is completely hooked, even Siella plays with it! Now I no longer feel guilty about them playing with the iPad when they are using Learn With Homer, because he is learning! And preparing for a big year we have ahead!
