Reading Comprehension Skills & Practice for Struggling Readers

UGNN Apps Infomanager

Main Idea 1 was developed specifically to help children master reading comprehension. The app helps “lost readers,” kids who breezed through the early reading skills of phonics and sight-words, but don’t actually understand what they are reading. Main Idea 1 is the first in the Main Idea series and builds proficiency in understanding what a sentence is about and the main idea it is conveying.
      Tested with typical and special needs children, Main Idea 1 is designed to increase motivation and keep children engaged. Reading comprehension skills are built incrementally through a game-like format with a fun and engaging rewards system. New levels are unlocked only when users are ready as they master new skills. Instead of punishing users for wrong answers, users are always gently guided to correct ones, reducing frustration.

Four Games That Teach Rhyming – Partners in Rhyme 1.4 for iOS

UGNN Apps Infomanager

This app utilizes proven Accelerated Learning Techniques and Montessori principles. Partners in Rhyme helps build strong phonemic awareness skills and helps develop foundational reading skills through entertaining and interactive games. The app’s four different learning games all help develop rhyming skills in different ways. Children are hearing the sounds of words and matching rhyming pictures, or discerning whether or not certain word and picture pairings rhyme.
      According to Preschool University President, Richard Colombini, “Rhyming is a great way to begin phonemic awareness with young children. Rhyming games help children develop phonemic awareness by allowing them to focus on the sounds most easily discernible in words: the final sounds.”
