100 Key Words for Early Readers
Unique to the Learn to Read Collection, each magical Ultra eBook features 100 key words like “fast” and “fun” that include: short vowels, blends, long vowel pairs, silent letters and more. Many of these high frequency words have common spelling patterns, helping new readers develop a foundation to transfer learning and expand vocabulary. Hear individual words sounded out, or touch a word to see letters highlight as it is sounded out. This helps kids develop an understanding of letter-sound relationships—the building blocks of phonics. Expand vocabulary with a visual dictionary. Vocabulary knowledge is closely linked to reading comprehension. Tap highlighted words for a kid-friendly definition and see a simple animation that shows a word’s meaning or how it’s used in the story.
Three Auto-Adjusting Reading Levels
Fairy Tales enhances the way kids learn to read with three reading levels in each story that adjust automatically so kids can read at their own pace. If they get stuck on a word, they can drag the stylus across the word to hear it sounded out. Three levels of text in each Ultra eBook vary in complexity based on how kids perform in comprehension activities. To support reading development, text must be at an optimal level of difficulty. Studies have shown that children who learn to read and write early on are more likely to experience overall success in school.
Seven Action-Packed Activities
Each Ultra eBook in the Learn to Read Collection features engaging activities such as Marksmen, a bow and arrow game in which the reader selects the word with the stated characteristic: short vowel, long vowel, and silent letter at three levels respectively. Story-based reading activities like Word Builder, Shake & Drag and Drag & Drop are designed to reinforce the learning. Designed to encourage kids to think more deeply about the story and assess their level of understanding, performance on comprehension activities determines a child’s suggested reading level. Ultra eBooks have integrated mini games that are not only fun, but help move the story forward. As kids play they actively experience what they are reading, bringing stories to life in a whole new way.
