    Older sister APPROVED

    Last night I found this, my little brother just started kindergarten, and we homeschool. We set everything up fairly quickly and he learned the 'N' sound! I read a review that said it had incorrect phonics. Well, you learn the letter sounds, and sort stuff depending upon the sound. Not incorrect phonics. Also, my brother regularly comes up to me and asks to play! I played a little of it, and it's pretty fun! I already know all the stuff, but I will sum it up in two words! Educational FUN! That is hard to find. I got it for free, in Febuary. That's it! Thank you for reading! This was a review from ❤️Km❤️!

    Very educational yet fun!

    My daughter loves this game and completed it awhile back! She got a certificate of completion!! She’s currently five years old and it’s too easy for her now but was not the case at first. I did practice with her along the way (blending, sight words) and this was a great reinforcer. I’m on the search now for something more difficult and will definitely be checking out other apps this developer has to offer.

    My 8 year old is dyslexic and was struggling to read BIG time! I saw teach my monster to read on a FB post and thought why not we have tried everything else..this program has helped her TREMENDOUSLY!! She has improved her reading so much just with doing it for a week! She also enjoys doing it because it’s so fun so it’s not a chore to get her to do it! We love this program!
