Innovative Phonics-to-Fluency Software for Hands-on Reading and Spelling
(From the creators of the award-winning Read, Write & Type!)
The Talking Fingers approach is based on a simple idea: text is speech made visible! We use our mouths to talk, to make the sounds of words. We use our fingers (with a pencil or keyboard) to represent those sounds on paper. When children learn to link speech sounds with letters, they can use the alphabet code to write any word they can say. Their fingers are "talking".
Our flagship software, for grades K-3, seamlessly integrates phonics, reading, writing and keyboarding.
Foundations for Reading & Writing Fluency
Our new software, for grades 2-4, demystifies spelling and teaches children to recognize frequently repeated patterns in words.
