Phonics and Reading with McGuffey for iPad

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

This program takes the McGuffey method of reading and puts it in a great little app.  If you are not familiar with it I recommend you check out the McGuffy Eclectic Primer.   McGuffy was a famous teacher that designed one of the best learning methods in history.

In this app you can add 10 different users and it keeps all the results separated.  Simply start at the beginning or skip ahead to your child's level.  This is a great early phonics program that every homeschool should use in my opinion.  There is 52 lessons that engage any age to the amazing fun of learning.  The interface is very easy to use and keeps children attention.

I feel this product is one of the best I have tried for my son.  He still has problems once in a  while and needs extra help.  He easily breezes through the lessons and has fun while he is doing it. This is now apart of our daily lesson plans and am really happy with his results.

More info and where you can purchase it can be found here.

Product description from the sponsor

 "Phonics and Reading with McGuffey I is a all in one low cost tool for teaching beginning reading for all age groups. It does not patronize older students, and it does not terribly bore younger students. It is a software tool that acts as a one on one tutor for those who maybe struggling in their effort to learn the basics of reading English. It offers drills, and personal experimentation, as well as real world reading practice. Every concept is built in a systematic way, with the first concepts being the simplest and progressing from there. It was developed with real people in mind who have real problems learning the basics. It can be of value to students that are not struggling but would like to have structure in their efforts to learn as the student can set his or her pace when learning.
