Description

The Phonics Museum is where children read, in record speed. Teaching children to read at a young age is one of the best things parents can do for children’s future academic success, but knowing how or where to start can be overwhelming and oftentimes confusing. The Phonics Museum takes the stress and guesswork out of teaching children to read by combining fun storytelling with a multi-sensory approach to learning to read. Every child has a unique learning style. At the Phonics Museum, we recognize this and teach “with the grain,” so whether your child is a hands-on kinesthetic learner or a visual or auditory learner, the Phonics Museum was built for them and includes over 900 games, videos, interactions, and memory songs to fit all learning styles. Children ages 3-7 will be transported into a magical interactive museum as they follow William and Wendy through the reading adventure of a lifetime. Everything comes to life at the Phonics Museum. Letters, sounds, paintings, even Percival the walking, talking suit of armor! Children will learn to write long before they’re able to hold a pencil. and write by writing with their fingertip--an incredible advantage.

"Guess who just read her first book on your app?!!! Our four-year-old (not even four and a half yet) is reading! Thanks for making such an awesome app!!!" "My four-year-old loves playing on the app, and will beg me each day to let her do lessons on it. Through the fun and engaging atmosphere of the app, she quickly learned the letter sounds and started putting them together to form words. And we only used the app for a month before she read her first book on it! The app has made learning to read fun and enjoyable. We have loved it!"

  • Good content poor app stability

    Content is excellent. Curriculum is solid. The app however is problematic. App randomly freezes, and the only fix is to totally delete the app and reinstall. This is hindering our learning process, I’ve done this process probably a dozen or more times over the few weeks we’ve been using the app. Content is server side, and certain sections are especially slow loading.
  • Love this App!

    My daughter is 5 and due to her birthday is in TK (transitional kindergarten). She is ready to learn at a quicker pace then what she is getting at school. I got this app end of Dec, 2017 and she is loving it. She asks to use it daily and likes doing multiple lessons each time. I also have the kindergarten workbook so she can do addition work. By the end of January 208 she started sounding words out and was willing to attempt and succeed at reading simple books. I give all the credit to this program. Thank you!!!
  • So much potential

    There really is potential here, but it needs more work. The data is stored server side, but as we progress the app takes up more and more space on our device and we have to delete it and reinstall from the App Store with greater and greater frequency. We are currently 18 letters in on part 1 of 2 for kindergarten. We are using the app in conjunction with the print curriculum, so still making progress but I kind of wish there was a parental way to skip lessons as we sometimes work through a good chunk on paper and it would help if I could progress from where we are rather than having every activity locked. At first my child was excited to do the lessons, but some of the listening ones like the jack in the box or pig laughing are getting old and she has started to refuse to do some specific ones. Also, the pronunciation of the phonic sounds includes a very strong shwa or a vowel, like saying rah for R rather than urh in songs and videos, which the written text instructs to be careful not to include. It’s frustrating to experience the contradiction.

    We could never get this app passed the first screen. I tried getting support. I wrote to the company via email, they never responded. I canceled before the trial time was over. I continued to get charged unbeknowst to me under subscriptions, even though I canceled! I am highly dissatisfied!
  • App has trouble working

    Our daughter loves this app, but on the first floor and the second painting we got to the 10th activity where you write the letter A. When we select the activity the app immediately closes. We restarted multiple times with no success. Frustrated that we paid for an app with such poor functionality.
  • Will not sign us in:(

    We have LOVED this app! However, more times than not , we cannot get past the log in screen. It says it is logging us in but it never gets past that screen. It’s so frustrating because we are willing to pay the monthly fee but we will have to cancel if we can’t even get into the program. We don’t want to cancel,
  • Great App

    Phonics Museum is one of the best apps available in terms of content. My kids love it and find it very motivating. My only complaint is that it’s somewhat glitchy. It often freezes on the middle of a game. We have to shut down the app and restart it to make it work. That slows down the learning and the fun. UPDATE: I’ve lowered my rating to one star because the app no longer works. I’ve contacted customer service several times and they seem unable to resolve the issue. It’s very disappointing because it has the potential to be an awesome app.
  • Amazing app for that your child will love

    Unlike some of the reviewers, my daughter doesn’t beg to use the phonics app (that’s more just her personality though). However, once I convince her to use it, I can’t give her a good reason to stop “playing” (really learning from) the Phonics Museum. And she won’t let me give her a good reason. She insists on playing it for as long as I’ll let her. Do you want your child, at four, to tell you what a “Consonant Digraph” is and be able to explain it to you? Do want your child to be able to start writing and reading as early as four - with virtually little time on your part, yet being able to rest assured that the “teacher” (Miss Biddle) is a good influence? If so, this is the app for your child. It’s a terrific experience for our girl by using various sorts of education techniques - songs, talking lessons, and an array of activities. Five stars without doubt. Definitely worth the price!

    Load time was crazy long and it locked up twice. I have a new phone and updated software so it was really frustrating :-/
