"An excellent app to teach numbers/letters/multiplication tables." Technology in Education

"Featuring outstanding management features, lots of levels ... this collection of 42 dot-to-dot puzzles can be used to practice counting, the alphabet, or times tables." Children's Technology Review

”As a kid I used to love dot-to-dot pictures. This app takes it to the next level with fun pictures, filled in on completion, timed modes where kids have to finish in a certain time to open the next level and number sequences based on times tables so that older kids can still use the app to practice their arithmetic.” Thenextweb.com

Number counting. Learning the times tables. Repeating the alphabet. This needn’t be boring for kids. With DotToDot numbers and letters it’s fun to practise all three!

Using dot-to-dot puzzles, DotToDot numbers and letters teaches the sequence of numbers and letters by creating puzzles of dots that kids can’t wait to join up! Whether it’s counting “1,2,3”, learning the various times tables, or remembering each letter name in alphabetical order, DotToDot makes learning fun.

Choose what kids practice or use the app’s age-based settings. A four year old might practise counting “1,2,3” through simple dot-to-dot number puzzles, especially designed for younger fingers. If they touch the right dot, the app says the number next to it. If they touch the wrong dot, the dot wriggles to let them know and the correct dot starts to flash.

Similarly five year olds might practice letter names in alphabetical order. In the same way the app creates puzzles, but with letters instead of numbers next to each dot. Through this exploratory play kids learn how to count and know their ABC off by heart. They soon begin to associate the spoken letter or number with its written form. As they complete each puzzle the app celebrates their success.

For an older child, you might set the level to practise counting in 9s with more complicated dot-to-dot puzzles. The extensive range of settings in the Parentzone enables you to adjust the level of each game specifically for the needs of your child. You can also switch the timer on and they can compete against themselves and their siblings. Or why not increase the challenge by making them beat the unlock time to move onto the next puzzle? You’re in control.

The aged-based settings take the recommendations of the UK’s National Curriculum as a guide to know what children should know, at what age. You can also choose between a UK or US voice.

DotToDot numbers and letters is the perfect complement to our best-selling app abc PocketPhonics (which teaches handwriting and letter sounds using synthetic phonics).

This app is ideal if you’re child has progressed well with learning the phonetic sounds of letters (as taught by abc PocketPhonics) and now needs to learn the letter names.

Experts recommend not including letter names when teaching synthetic phonics as it can confuse children by introducing too much information at once. For that reason our PocketPhonics app doesn’t teach letter names so children can learn to read more quickly. DotToDot numbers and letters introduces the letter names, as well as get them started on counting and learning their times tables. A great next step.

Who’s it for?
Children from 4 upwards.

“Best app for learning phonics ... Everything is taught exactly as it would be in school, with the same methods as outlined in the national curriculum” iPad for Kids 2013

PocketPhonics teaches kids letter sounds, first words and handwriting. It is used in over 300 UK primary schools, and tens of thousands of homes. It follows the national curriculum, and independent research (see appsinmypocket.com/research) found children learnt nine times faster using PocketPhonics compared to a classroom lesson.

“PocketPhonics teaches the basics of reading and writing to young kids. Most surprising? It seems to work.” 148apps.com
"One of my children’s favorite early reading apps" New York Times
“This app feels much like a private tutoring session for early readers with emphasis on letter sounds and writing.” everythingmom.com
-“If you are working on phonics for your kids, this is the best application to have.” Technology in Education
-“This app feels much like a private tutoring session for early readers with emphasis on letter sounds and writing.” everythingmom.com
-“PocketPhonics is seriously educational and I think it’s a terrific tool for helping early readers. You can tell that a ton of thought and research was put into it and best of all, they talked and listened to teachers. It shows.” iPhoneMom.com
-“When it comes to learning apps for young learners and early readers, there is no better choice than abc PocketPhonics." ipad-applications.neiia.com

We’ve also had coverage in the Daily Telegraph and Guardian.

PocketPhonics is split in to 12 groups of letter sounds, each group is followed by a set of storybooks for those letter sounds. Kids read storybooks on the right level for them.

The phonics levels are included in the price of this "basic edition", but the storybooks cost extra. PocketPhonics Stories (full edition) includes the stories in the price.

In the first group of letter sounds, there are six sounds to master before the child will be able to read their first storybook. Most children aged 4+ start to read their first storybook within 10 weeks if they use the app for 15 mins everyday.

Parents and teachers can easily monitor children’s progress online. Teachers and parents are emailed a certificate when a child completes a task.

Children can tap an unfamiliar word in a story, and the app will sound out the letters to help the child understand what the word says. They can tap again to hear the word and see a picture that illustrates its meaning.

As the child reads a story, the app tests whether they can read some of the key words. At the end of the story, it quizzes the child on all new words in that story.

Children master the following skills:

* writing letters (more UK handwriting style options than any other app)
* recognising 72 letter sounds (e.g. ‘ch’ are the letters that make the initial sound in ‘chat’)
* blending letter sounds together to make words (e.g ‘ch-a-t’)
* hearing a word and selecting its written form (e.g. the app says, “chat”, the child has to select ‘chat’ from a group of words)

How it works
* The phonics levels are included in the price.
* The books are extra, but can be tried for free. £1.49 monthly and £12.99 annual subscription unlock access to all books

Thenextweb.com: “DotToDot number whiz takes this to the next level with fun pictures, filled in on completion, timed modes where kids have to finish in a certain time to open the next level and number sequences based on times tables so that older kids can still use the app to practice their arithmetic.”

DotToDot number whiz lite is the free, cut-down version of DotToDot number whiz so you can try before you buy. The full version teaches your kids:

* to count (from “1,2, 3 ...” all the way up to “12, 24, 36...”)
* letter names and alphabetical order

The full version contains 42 puzzles, the lite version has 8.

In this lite version, you can chose for younger kids to practise counting “1,2,3...” or older kids to practise “9, 18, 27...”. A four-year-old can practise counting “1,2,3...” on a simplified set of dot-to-dot puzzles designed for younger fingers. If they touch the right dot, the app says the number. If they touch the wrong dot, the dot wriggles to let them know and the correct dot draws attention to itself. Their exploratory play teaches them the correct order and they begin to associate the spoken number with its written form. As they complete each puzzle the app celebrates their success.

For an older child, you might select counting in 9s with more complicated dot-to-dot puzzles and without the app saying the numbers. You can switch the timer on and they can compete against themselves and their siblings as to who can get the best scores up on the leaderboard. Increase the challenge, by making them beat the unlock time to move onto the next puzzle.

Kids either touch the dots individually (great for accuracy) or drag their finger between dots (can be faster, but easier to make mistakes). When they’ve finished the puzzle, a colourful, original picture is revealed.

You can chose between a UK or a US voice.

WHO IS IT FOR?
Aimed primarily at preschool children and those up to 7 years.

This is the app to get if you are passionate about your child learning to read, and your child is getting ready to start school, in reception or year 1, or older but struggling with reading.

It teaches phonics with the voice of an English reception teacher, and handwriting (including joined up) just like your local school. It has a first set of storybooks for them to read - like Biff and Chip, but written specifically for children learning to read using the synthetic phonics method of teaching reading as outlined in the national curriculum.

Your child will prefer them to paper books, because they can tap a word to get help sounding it out. You will prefer them, because the quizzes check they can read the words and understand them. The books get progressively harder, but kids don’t realise because they are getting better at reading all the time.

If your child is new to phonics, they’ll begin by being taught the first group of letter sounds, the sounds they make and how to write them. Once they’ve mastered them, they’ll tackle their first set of simple storybooks that just use those letter sounds.

If your child can already read some simple storybooks, then the app will assess what level storybooks to start them on in the app. Once they have mastered those books, it will teach them the next set of letter sounds they need to know.

Our apps are used in hundreds of UK primary schools.

PocketPhonics Stories won 2015 Best Learning Apps & Games award from Balefire Labs. Out of the 5000 education apps they reviewed, it's one of only nine apps they rated A+. It's also an Academic Choices Award Winner.

Parents and teachers can easily monitor children’s progress online. They can see what stage the child is currently at, any letter sounds they are having difficulty with and what storybooks have been read. Teachers and parents are emailed a certificate when a child completes a learning task.

Specifically, children master the following skills:

* writing letters (wide range of writing styles plus cursive options, so they can learn to form letters the same way as at school)
* recognising 72 letter sounds (e.g. ‘ch’ are the letters that make the initial sound in ‘chat’)
* blending letter sounds together to make words (e.g ‘ch-a-t’)
* hearing a word and selecting its written form (e.g. the app says, “chat”, the child has to select ‘chat’ from a group of words - some of which are similar to chat)

At home, they can easily switch from using the app on your iPhone to an iPad. At school, teachers can give them any iPad, and they’ll be able to continue from where they left off.
