Product Description: 

Phonics Keyboard is a keyboard extension and game for the iPad and iPhone that is designed to help children of all ages associate letters with their phonic sound.

Main Features: 

  • An image of a familiar word begins with the letter on each key.
  • Every time a key is pressed, the letter being typed is read aloud, using both its name and it’s phonics sound.
  • As the child becomes more confident, the user can adjust the settings to remove the images or change the auditory support.
  • Can work as a first keyboard for early typing practice.
  • Works in any app that utilizes the iPad keyboard.
  • Use it to assist a young writer to complete their first email or practice spelling their name.
  • Cheerful British and American children’s voices are available for free in the phonics keyboard settings.
  • Hear letters read by name (ay, bee, cee) and by phonics sound (ah, buh, cuh). This helps to establish a link between letters and their sounds and helps to advance reading and spelling skills.
