The Pip School Game

With research-based methods, the Pip School app delights your child with fun exercises that focus on the building blocks of literacy: comprehension and phonological awareness skills. Your child plays with Pip and his animal friends for 15-30 minute sessions, paced to your child’s level. We recommend they play a total of 2 hours a week across 4-6 sessions.

The risk of waiting is too high – and reading challenges are preventable!

Research has proven that addressing reading problems early prevents them from happening later.

  • Risk of reading challenges can be identified in pre-readers
  • With early and effective instruction, over 90% of children will become readers
  • ½ hour of instruction in Kindergarten is equivalent to 2 hours in 4th grade

What does the Pip School app's instruction look like?

Our app focuses on the pre-reading skills essential to learning to read. We start with phonological awareness and language comprehension.

Your child learns these skills through proven activities in a game-based app. When practicing phonological awareness, your child uses tiles to represent sounds and words. We use voice recognition specifically developed for children. With language comprehension, your child creates scenes to match sentences they hear, and they sort objects into groups based on meaning.

This approach is aligned with the Science of Reading.
