Product Description

Blending SE - 95 Percent Group Inc.




The Teaching Blending® Student Edition Application provides students with an engaging iPad application to practice and master letter blending skills on their own after receiving instruction from their teacher. The app is used to reinforce the concepts taught by the classroom teacher using the 95 Percent Group Teacher’s Guidebook, "Teaching Blending: from /k/ /─â/ /t/ to cat in 8 Stages."

The Student Edition app includes the animation, sound and manipulative exercises so important for young learners. Each skill within the app provides students with ample opportunity to practice skills using a number of different letter/word combinations. At any point in the app, students may get assistance from the help icon which gives verbal instructions in both English and Spanish. Each skill within the app provides students with an opportunity for skill mastery by enabling them to record his or her voice and compare it to a teacher’s pronunciation of the letter combinations.

The app is based on the 95 Percent Group Teacher’s Guide, Teaching Blending® 
 which is sold separately and includes practice of the following skills:

    • Blending Awareness with Phonemes and Letters
    • Voiced and Silent Rehearsal
    • Eyes Only Rehearsal and No Rehearsal
    • Adjusting the Vowel Sound

Students are commonly taught how to do continuous blending (sound by sound and then blending to read the word) and then left primarily on their own to learn how to read whole words blended without sub-vocalizing. Many students struggle with this approach. The Teaching Blending Teacher Guide and the related mobile apps provide opportunity for practice in the stages needed to transition a student from reading words sound by sound to reading whole words blended.

Teaching Blending® Student app is a fun and appealing way to transition students in Grades K and 1 to reading whole words blended.
