Hooked on Phonics is launching their mobile app, The Big Reading Show Classroom, on National Teacher Day, May 5, 2015. The app, with a $20 value, will be available to download for free for 24 hours from the iTunes store.
A recent United Federation of Teachers (UFT) survey found that teachers are spending an average of $500 of their own hard-earned money each year on supplies for their students. On Tuesday, May 5, 2015, in honor of National Teachers Day, Hooked on Phonics, the undisputed leader in reading tools for kids, will give back by offering unlimited downloads of its brand-new alphabet classroom app, The Big Reading Show Classroom, for free from the iTunes Store. This is a one-day, one-time nationwide event in recognition of National Teachers Day. Hooked on Phonics is proud to have teachers as advisors in the development and testing of all its products.
"With classroom sizes expanding and costs skyrocketing, Hooked on Phonics is equipping teachers and parents with technology solutions to make teaching foundational reading skills easier—and more exciting—than ever,” said Julie Temple Stan, Editorial Director for Hooked On Phonics. “Our Big Reading Show Classroom is an interactive exploration of letters, words, text concepts, phonemic awareness, vocabulary—everything a child needs to know in order to learn to read. Our aim is to get these tools into the hands of as many teachers as possible to thank them for all they do every day, in honor of National Teacher Day.”
