REVIEWS

Professor Pup’s Phoneme Farm is a great place to visit to work on beginning phonemic awareness and phonics skills! Featuring fun, animated listening activities for identifying sounds at the beginning, middle, and end of words, this is a hit with my students! The app also helps work on rhyming, sound blending, segmentation, sound manipulation, and deletion. I really like the engaging graphics, narrator, and option to select the specific skills you want to work on! This app tracks progress across multiple users. There are several interactive activities for each sound for lots of auditory bombardment. Bluebee Pals are perfect to pair with this app! Blue Bee Pals Review: App Store Link

We are noting very marked gains at the TK, K, and 1st Grade levels. The children are having such a great time, they don't realize they are learning [with the Colvard Learning apps]. —Catherine Carvalho, Principal, St. Bruno School, Whittier, California
***
I love how the children interact...say the sound and then write the sound. They love the dancing...the music...the writing race with Professor Pup.—Robin Dean Grantham, Reading Intervention Specialist, Morehouse Parish School District, Bastro, Louisiana
***
Our younger grades--particularly Transitional Kindergarten--have seen significant increases in Early Literacy! This year we had a 73% SGP (Student Growth Profile). We credit much of this to the Pup's Quest programs.—Denise M. DeSantis, Director of Development, St. Raphael Elementary School, Los Angeles, California
***
Pups Quest for Phonics is a great resource for teaching phonics in a self-contained TK and Kindergarten classroom! Through the use of audio, visuals and differentiated methods of instruction, our students are able to build a strong phonological foundation.Estela Gonzales, Teacher, St. Raphael Elementary School, Los Angeles, California
***
We can see that within the grades that are actively incorporating Pup's Quest into the curriculum there is significant growth. We love Colvard Learning programs!—Allison, Jordan, Principal, St. Raphael Elementary School, Los Angeles, California

PUP'S QUEST FOR PHONICS



"For our struggling readers who are just missing the mark and who may have missed the basics, this is a phenomenal way to bring in the technology that we want to implement in the classroom to help them. This program would be awesome in our K-2 program and I believe we would see drastic improvements and increase in reading skills by years' end. I would use this product with my lower level students who are really struggling with the 2nd grade curriculum. I see this being an excellent tool for intervention, and I can just see my little lovelies having fun while they practice Phonemic Awareness and reading strategies. I feel it will help them to feel successful, I like the way it scaffolds the lesson for them and they can see their achievements as they progress. I am so excited and hopeful that I can get this product into my classroom and begin using it right away!"--Stephanie,Second Grade Teacher ["Advocate" 4-Stars, EdSurge Tech EducatorProduct Review]

========================================================================

"The ability for each user to move at their own pace is wonderful. I also love how it allows us constantly monitor the students progress and see how each student is doing. This program constantly teaches and reinforces the most basic and important concepts for word study. It covers all the important features that many students might struggle with."--Jake,Teacher, Elementary School ["Advocate" 4-Stars, EdSurge Tech EducatorProduct Review]

=======================================================================

"I would use this product as a reinforcement to reteach and provide independent practice for phonemic awareness and phonics. I really like the child-centered visuals and backdrop of the program. Students can demonstrate their knowledge in different ways. This program keeps the students' attention and blocks out distractions because the students use head phones. It also provides a visual, hands on, and auditory practice."--Celeste,Kindergarten Teacher ["Advocate" 4-Stars, EdSurge Tech EducatorProduct Review]

=======================================================================

"I would use this product to help my students learn phonics and to practice literacy skills. It does a great job of touching all the domains required of literacy. It offers users the opportunity to read, write, think, and listen, which is crucial to great learning. I would recommend it because it's easy to use and accessible on many platforms. It seems to be a more in-depth iteration of literacy apps."--Cammise, Instructor  ["Advocate" 4-Stars, EdSurge TechEducator Product Review]

=======================================================================

"The parent platform looks easy to use and would help me with my little ones. It walks students through phonics and basic letter and word formation. It allows students to practice on their own at their own levels. I would recommend this to the teachers in my district. The K-2 teachers could really use this app to help their students."--Kamra, Math Teacherand Parent ["Advocate" 4-Stars, EdSurge Tech Educator Product Review]

=======================================================================

"I would use this tool to teach phonics for early literacy in grades K-1, and recommend it to help students with recognizing sounds., objects, and images. I would also use it as an intervention strategy for lower students. A great way to teach letter formation...tracing...handwriting recognition...sound blending. The blending tool is a great feature because students can get help pronouncing the words."--Patricia, Tech Coach["Advocate" 4-Stars, EdSurge Tech Educator Product Review]

=======================================================================

"I have students in the middle school that cannot read and I would use this program with those students to help them become more successful. The variety of ways to teach the concept was impressive [in this program]. Even though, you would think the middle school does not need a program like this, too many students are coming to the middle school reading well below grade level."--Kathy, Special Education Instructor["Advocate" 4-Stars, EdSurge Tech Educator Product Review]

=======================================================================

"A means for students to use self-guided, highly engaging reading interventions. Does a great job at addressing the needs of K-1 general education learners, special education classes as well as English language learners. Students needing reading interventions often struggle with motivation due to frustration. This bypasses those issues by engaging them using games and visuals."--Michael, Teacher ["Advocate" 4-Stars,EdSurge Tech Educator Product Review]
