All Aboard is a new way for a child to learn to read through phonics.
Your child’s school may have started using All Aboard Phonics in their classrooms, or maybe you have heard about us in some other way. All Aboard can help your child in both situations.
All Aboard is designed for children just starting to learn to read. If you have an older child who keeps guessing words or making mistakes with short words, we would recommend you check out our HelpingChildrenToRead.com website. It has lots of information on why learning to read is often hard for some of the brightest children and how to get things back on track.
The All Aboard Home Reading App
The crucial first step for engaging with All Aboard as a parent is to download the app and create an account. You can then get your child doing daily sessions. You will find it is based around a series of games that activate the key skills needed for reading.
If your child’s school has introduced you to All Aboard, then you should get an invite from All Aboard to collaborate on your child’s school account. If you are setting up the app independently, then you will create your own team of learners on the system.
Here are the links for the app in the Apple and Android app stores:
Your role in helping your child learn to read is crucial, because your child needs to do 10-15 minutes of supported practice each day.
If your child’s teacher tried to do that with 30 children, it would take 5 hours each day! So clearly that is not an option.
We can guide you through to success with your child. Just check out our short training videos. In particular, if you follow our 6 Golden Tips to the letter, we are confident it will all go well:
