App Review- Reading Raven

Reading Raven, 3.99. Was it worth it? Yep. For one thing my own kids love it and have practiced their phonics and reading fluency skills with this entertaining and educational app. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/reading-raven-hd/id496586135?mt=8 It starts simply with Lesson 1 matching lower case to lower case letters rewards with providing the sound and picture to the letter and correct letter formation. It moves into matching letters to sounds and then the best part... "You get a sticker!" In Lesson 3 children are reading words and recording themselves as they read. May I say they L-o-v-e, love this. In the final lesson they work on sight words and more letter sounds. Great App.
