People say it's too expensive. But I bought it for every device I own and my patents own! It's that good! It saves me time, it helps me choose a set of phonograms that one specific kid needs to practice! They just added the "pace" I was wanting Something like that. Yes I wish the next update would be the inclusion of the rules and advance phonograms as options. This is the bedt program!
$5? I love SWR and was so excited to discover this app. However, for the price, I expected a little better quality. Have someone professionally remaster the audio at least. It was a big letdown.
Too expensive for the quality. It really should have the SWR rules in addition to the phonograms. Disappointing.
Awesome This works great! It has helped my babies tremendously!!!
Great for independent practice It does a great job at sounding out the phonograms. The slow speed is nice for my beginners. I love the loop options and rules on/off. It would be nice to see the cursive font. Then both or either could be shown. Glad to have seen the first draft and all the inprovements. My 2nd child has learned to read with this. NOW, let us see how to write using clock letteres in cursive and manuscript Please. By the way the sounds let me know my kids ARE working while I can't see them.
Lots of fun! I bought and downloaded the SWR App to my Android phone and love it! I know a child who likes it better than the video I had made because he can scramble it up. :-) Wanda's Spell to Write and Read helped me immensely as a homeschooling parent. I've used the Spalding book and several other companies' programs for nearly 20 years and had missed the element of "think to spell". The success of the program is not whether my fast readers could read, but whether my slow reader would also benefit. So far, we've had many light bulb moments that offer great hope! This app makes reviewing the phonograms seem like a game.
1. New "Quick Sounds" screen, lets you press any phonogram and hear its sounds and rules
2. Some layout and button icon changes
3. Step Mode added, requires user to manually step to next letter
The Spalding Phonograms app is for students that need additional practice.
