Get Your Child Started on a Path to Reading
Learning to read can be as big a task for parents as it is for their children. While everyone loves watching their child’s eyes light up when he "gets it," the hours and hours of practice that both precede and follow that moment can be mind numbing. Now there is Square Panda, a delightful way to introduce your child aged three years and older to reading fluency through an easy-to-use tool set. With 45 “smart” letters that interact with the iPad apps, Square Panda Phonics is a visual, auditory, and tactile way to learn to read that will help your children discover how to decode letter and word sounds through a multi-sensory means.

Smart, Personalizable Apps
Using iPad apps, Square Panda provides an instant response to your child’s efforts and rewards tasks that are correctly completed with corresponding photos or humorous responses by silly characters. And if your child encounters repeated difficulties with certain tasks, the app will recognize this and alter the curriculum to allow him more time in that area. In addition, parents can even personalize the app so that if their child spells out the word "dog," the app will reward the child with a picture of the family dog. Similarly, a photo of mom can be inserted as a reward for when a child correctly spells out "M-O-M."

Customized for Each Learner!
Using the latest research on phonics, Square Panda makes learning to read more enjoyable, and it can be especially appropriate both for the very young and those needing additional reinforcement, including those recovering from a brain injury. Offering phonics instruction and diagnostics capabilities to measure and adjust the program for each user, Square Panda provides progress reports for the parent and will become your family’s favorite reading assistant. This engaging educational experience will help your child’s quest to gain reading fluency.

Compatibility
Square Panda is compatible with the third series of iPad and later, including iPad mini 2 and newer models.

    This product is awesome! My 5 year old and two year old love playing it. It's very easy to set up and play, and their customer service is great. I would highly recommend this for early readers and preschool age.

    Helped my child with phonics and with spelling because of the rewards he received in the games for spelling words correctly. I just wish it had more challenging games in it. My son kind of phased out of it rather quickly. About halfway through the Kindergarten year. I feel like this is something that would benefit a pre-K 4 child more than a Kindergartner.

    My child enjoyed most of the apps but lost interest very fast. I wish there were more challenging settings.

    For the price, I wish there were more apps with this. My son worked through all of the apps relatively quickly and doesn't care to do them again. Luckily we have a daughter who will be able to use it soon. The apps themselves are very nice and easy to use. I love the letters and square panda board. Overall, this is a very nice product, I just wish we had started it when my son was 3 and not 4.

    This is my son's second favorite item from the kit. He loves it. And I really think it helped a lot with reading and spelling. Is it necessary? No. Is it fun and worth it? If you have more than one kid, I'd say yes.
