Reading Bear: free phonics & vocabulary…learn to read for free!.

 Reading Bear is a great free website for learning to read.

It’s 50 free video lessons based on phonics rules and phonograms. I’m a Spalding phonogram fan and while the phonics does not match up perfectly they are similar enough that we’re still getting great value from the lessons.

Some features I really like is the ability to turn on a video each word being pronounced. This is awesome for the ESL learner or the special needs learner. You can also turn on ‘breaks’ to give tired minds a wee rest too.

This is an excellent program for helping establish that each letter/phonogram represents a sound. Spelling should also be enhanced with usage too.

Monster List of Apps for People with Autism #homeschool #edtech

At Apps In Education they have a fabulously huge list of apps, nicely sorted, for people with autism. It includes a brief summary and where it might help develop certain skills. The price is also listed for convenience.

That being said this is a great list of educational apps for children without autism too. Especially if there’s a specific skill you’d like to work on.
