"Matching children with optimal text levels is key to supporting reading development, so we’ve designed the SpongeBob Ultra eBook especially for readers who are building more independence and confidence as readers. It features longer sentences and more complex vocabulary across three levels of text that adjust based on a child’s performance. The built-in comprehension-based activities prompt growing readers to make more predictions and logical inferences as they respond to questions about the story." - Carolyn J., LeapFrog Learning Expert
- Phonics Rules: Phonics rules can help children pay attention to specific spelling patterns that words have in common and use this knowledge to sound out new words.
- Vocabulary Skills: The larger their vocabulary, the easier it is for children to comprehend what they read and hear and communicate with others.
- Listening and Reading Comprehension: As children develop comprehension of books read aloud or independently, they explore the uses and functions of written language. They begin to construct meaning, eventually applying critical skills to make inferences and draw conclusions.
