Phonograms by SEI Positive Reviews
Perfect to practice with my KindergartnerMy first lenguaje in not English so even when I speak a very fluent English I have to admit that I was never tough all the phonograms while learning English. Being said this I don't expect the app does the whole job of teaching my son but it has been a big help to practice with him the sounds each letter does. Like I said this is great for practice and we love it!! I am not sure why people says sound doesn't work but for me it works every single time I open it. I would love to click on any letter randomly without having to go through the list and hear the sound but still it does the job and it has been very helpful. Love it!!!.Version: 1.2
Does not match the order at schoolThis app really needs a way to choose the phonograms you want to practice. My son’s teacher is not going in the same order as the lists in the app, making it hard to practice using the app. I have to hunt around the different app lists to find the ones he is currently learning. To make matters worse, there is supposed to be a “select” button available in the differentiated practice that would somewhat allow you to do this, but it is not there. This makes the differentiated practice function useless..Version: 1.2
Great for parents at least!This application have helped our family so much. Every single day from Monday to Thursday we use it to help us with our kindergarten student to do her homework. She is getting the best scores in the tests for the subject. We are more than pleased with this awesome app. We specially love the free section to check any phonogram and dictate to our kiddo. Is simply and once you try all the sections you can use it as your special homework-helper. 👌.Version: 1.2
Love it!Sound works; just make sure your ringer is set to “on”.
The writing section is meant to be used along with paper and the answers are shown as flash cards to check your work.
I like this bc it requires them to practice their handwriting as they are supposed to; not on a screen.
This was a great option for us to supplement the work that is happening at school while only spending $4.
My girls (3 and 5) are doing so well with this program!
I think it just needs a website or video to explain its features. I wish they had audio available to remind children of the rules as they write. “Start at the top line…”
I recommend this app to anyone with a young reader!.Version: 1.4.3
DO NOT RECOMMEND** DO NOT RECOMMEND**
I paid for this app to help my child learn for school curriculum but the sound went out. I thought it was my phone but it just randomly lost sound and no matter how much I restart or remove and reinstall the app sound is gone. I got to use it maybe 2 times and then lost sound. Please FIX iPhone 7 Plus.Version: 1.2
UsefulI highly recommend this application. I will say parents do have to put their part in selecting and keeping up with the appropriate curriculum/ syllabus. Had no issues with sounds. I found this application to be helpful for my child, and he was only in kindergarten and reading..Version: 1.2
I like it but needs work.I like that I can make a list specifically for the phonograms my kid is learning but don’t like that I can’t make another list for my other kids. Please make it so that I can make multiple differentiated lists that can be saved and removed easily. Recommended by my kids teacher for Spalding..Version: 1.2
Turn your phone off silentIt’s really frustrating, but make sure your phone is not on silent while using the app and the sound should work. This definitely should be fixed though I agree with all of you. Now can someone tell me how the writing part works?.Version: 1.2
Help no soundThis is a great tool, the only problem is that sound works sometimes I don’t know what happens but their are days when no sound for the phonograms is available. It’s frustrating because I paid for this app to have my kid practice the sounds of phonograms..Version: 1.3
LifesaverI’ve been having my 6yr old work on the phonograms in this app and have seen improvement in his reading skills in just 2 weeks. Phonograms are a reading game-changer..Version: 1.2
Found out why sound doesn't workMy sound wouldn't work when I first purchased this app, even if my volume was all the way up. I found out that if my phone ringer is switched to silent (left side switch on i phone) then sound won't work..Version: 1.2
Good for the carThe oral part of this app is great, my daughter can practice in the car and I can hear her. We can not get the written part of this app to work. Kind of bummed because it would be fun for her to practice writing in the car also.
I hope that a fix comes soon..Version: 1.2
No volume problemsMy daughters teacher suggested this. Value at $4. Volume works fine. Bad reviews seem to be fixed or user error..Version: 1.2
No SoundI just purchased this App and can’t use it! I thought this problem would have already been taken care of. Want my money back!.Version: 1.2
Love it!Works great for allowing kids to practice. For those that say no sound make sure your phone is not on silent..Version: 1.2
Written part doesn't workBought this for my daughter to practice. It's pretty basic, but I'm not happy the written part doesn't work..Version: 1.2
Works fineI was hesitant to buy this app after seeing all the low reviews but my daughters school recommended it. Additionally the teacher that recommended it showed us how to work it so it was at least working for her. After deciding to risk $4, I purchased it and mine works fine. For the complaints that the writing section doesn’t work, they need to read the instructions. You don’t actually write on the tablet. Instead it works like a flash card where you hear the sound and write the corresponding letter on line paper using proper technique. Then when you are ready, you have the app show you if you were right.
As for the sounds not working, ours works fine so I can only guess it’s user error or their speaker doesn’t work well. Their expectations also may not be set right. The app doesn’t make continuous letter sounds. Instead it states it once which amounts to about 1 second of sound per letter unless the letter has more than one sound. Also if you are doing the sound quiz, it does not make a sound until the 3 second timer is up.
The only reason it is not 5 stars is because the app is not very robust. I think it should have at least allowed for an optional writing element within the app instead of on paper. Plus it is not very feature reach or visually appealing for a $4 app. This app really needs to be $.99. But since my daughters school uses it, we went ahead and paid $4 for it. Normally I would rate this app with 3 stars but I wanted to give it a one star handicap to offset the negative reviews from those that didn’t follow instructions..Version: 1.2
