Not I. bump
I have tried it and I think its wonderful. Honestly you can create the flash cards yourself. Manipulatives as well as visuals help also. The key to the program is consistency. I am an elementary teacher and my 15mo old has a 50 word vocabulary so far. The program works, you just need the time.
This. It focuses on recognition of the shape of words more than anything. I was given the program as a gift and I use it only alongside several other teaching methods.
Quoting momtoBrenna:I have heard that program can lead to comprehension problems because they are just learning while words and not meanings or any phonics. My dd taught herself to read and we are still working with ds on recognizing letters and letter sounds. Dd is 6 and we aren't exactly sure when she learned to read but she started showing us around 3. Ds is now 3.5 and we aren't sure what he knows. He plays with several different iPad apps that require letters, etc and does well but if we ask what is this xyz letter, he ignores us.
