Phonics the Augmented Reality Way:
It's been a while, but when I learnt to read the method used was "c-at cat", "mat mat" and so on. Gripping stuff, eh? Well, a new Augmented Reality app and accompanying cards make this a lot more engaging.
Moreover, it can free the teacher up to an extent because the child can listen to what the letters are supposed to sound like, hear the sounds combined together, and hear them in a phrase.
The cards are quite colourful and
engaging. The app is free, and the cards can be purchased online. The people behind the product are teachers, which I find inspires me with confidence.
