Silly Pictures - Beginning Reading Skills

Silly Pictures is designed to introduce reading and build vocabulary. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words and we believe that "they" (whoever "they" are) might be right. The purpose of Silly Pictures is to help beginning readers learn and recognize new words through the use of pictures and sounds. We call them Silly Pictures because the words are often combined to make silly pictures.

The courses that are available on this site are for Home and Home School Users as a monthly subscription with packages from $4.95 to $9.95 per month. The first 7 days are completely free.

Silly Pictures

This mini course is an expanded version of activities found in our Beginning Reading with Phonics course. These skills are so important that we decided that we needed to give students more practice with these skills. This course has three sections:
Picture Builder: This very simple and powerful activity allows students to create pictures by selecting pictures that represent words. Their choice is then combined to create a new picture and a sentence about the picture with the words read to them.
Learn the Words: Our "Learn the Words" section allows students to increase their vocabulary by showing a picture of the word, the word with the sound of the word and the sounds (phonemes) that make up the word. Their understanding of the words is verified by a one-minute time test called a Speed Round.
Picture Stories: Now that students are familar with the words, they are now challenged to complete the first letter of the words used in a picture sentence.

Probably the most important section is our "Learn the Words" section where students can see a picture of a word, hear the word and hear the letter sounds (phonemes) that form the word.

With our blended approach students can also blend the sounds to make the word. Kids earn silver and gold stars for completing each game or activity and if they earn all the stars, they can earn a "Gold Star Certificate of Achievement".

Program Features:
- Designed for Pre-K and K students with option to select grade level
- The Super Star Motivational and Data Tracking system, which encourages students to earn silver and gold stars by completing each song, activity, or game.
- User does not need to know how to read to use the program
- Appropriate for ESL and Special Needs Education
- Encorages kids to get excited about learning to read
- Can be used on almost any device, including iPad and Android devices.
