Introducing The Agnitus Phonics Program

Agnitus’ new phonics program is designed to bring the best language arts instruction into your home.

Over these past 2 years we’ve been working with language arts specialists, phonics experts, and even speech pathologists to design comprehensive curriculum for successfully learning to read and write at an early age (Note to teachers: we blend a rigorous phonics program for reading with the best of the Whole Language approach, as it relates to comprehension, storytelling and memorization of irregular sight words).

Normally, literacy instruction doesn’t begin in earnest until Kindergarten;  but studies show that children are often able and ready for it by ages 3 or 4.  The problem is that they require more one-on-one attention and feedback, than parents or preschool teachers can realistically provide.

Agnitus: Modern Approach to Phonics:

•    We Start Early – We begin formal instruction early on in playful toddler level literacy exposure that progressively builds into a more rigorous literacy learning program.
•    Multisensory – We continually present visual, auditory, and contextual forms together, including interactive music and song!
•    Balanced Pedagogy – We blend best practices of Phonics & Whole Language instruction
•    Integrated Learning – Our suites of literacy games are synchronized to work together in unison
•    Leveled Games – We provide multiple suites of games, each one designed for a different stage of literacy learning, and each one adaptive and self-paced (Toddler-K…with 1st grade soon to come)

Agnitus 2.0 – New Literacy and Mathematical Games

Today marks the availability of Agnitus 2.0, which is a major addition of literacy and mathematical skills to the Agnitus adaptive learning program. We’re really excited about Agnitus 2.0 because it covers 22 additional required common core curriculum skills, continuing our mission of making Agnitus a program that can help children at home by complementing the learning happening in school and also help teachers as a classroom teaching tool.

As with all of our games, the new games in Agnitus 2.0 are designed to allow children to learn and advance at their own pace, progressively building upon past skills mastered. They also offer children learning advancement beyond the skills available in our existing program.

For the past two years we’ve been working with language arts specialists, phonics experts, and speech pathologists to design a comprehensive curriculum, blending phonics-based methods with the Whole Language approach, to help children learn to read and write at an early age. This curriculum is included in Agnitus 2.0, linking together 14 new games to help develop a progressive program of literacy skills for children.

A new set of math games included in units 2.0 is aimed at teaching mathematical concepts so children can build on our previous set of games which helped them learn the meaning of numbers. Number lines are important to establishing mathematical foundations so we’ve added a number line program to Agnitus, helping children make connections between quantity, sequence and measurement. This new set of games helps children navigate up and down a number line, then the app automatically moves them to learn number sequences, basic arithmetic, skip counting, multiplication, factoring and division.
