What teachers are saying

“We LOVE StudyDog!  We use StudyDog for our special education students and they can't wait until they get their "Study Dog time!"   I am so excited to finally find something that our students can use independently and get something out of!”

A.G. Richardson Elementary

(4 Lessons)
Children are asked to join in the alphabet song and point their finger at each letter. This will familiarize children with the appearance of specific letters, their names, and their serial order in the alphabet.
Letter Knowledge
Alphabet Sort: The goal of this skill is to arrange a random collection of letters into alphabetical order. The child will arrange the letters in order beginning with “A”. The alphabet is divided into four segments to give equal emphasis to beginning and ending letters.
Letter Formation
(4 Lessons)
In this skill the child traces the outline of each letter in the alphabet. The lesson describes and demonstrates the strokes over a ghosted letter. The child helps with the demonstration and then repeats the drawing of the letter on their own.
Beginning Sounds
(4 Lessons)
Phonemes are introduced aurally and not linked to letters of the alphabet. Each sound is illustrated by an animation and corresponding action pantomimed by the child. Further lessons expand to matching onsets to phonemes and alliteration.
Rhyming Words
(4 Lessons)
These lessons begin by introducing and illustrating the concept of rhyme. Following lessons include finding the rhyming items in a room where various objects speak their name, collecting and sorting Rhymes, and finishing a poem that is missing ending words.
(2 Lessons)
Two syllable compound words are used to introduce syllables in words. Then a two, three or four syllable word is spoken normally where the child clicks a button for each syllable in the word as it is spoken.
(2 Lessons)
In vocabulary a single picture is shown. Words then appear, one at a time, and are highlighted and spoken as they appear. The child picks the word which names the picture. Simple words of familiar objects: dog, cat, pig, cow, bell etc.
Words in Sentences
(2 Lessons)
This skill uses the “Sentence Machine” where a written sentence is seen and spoken. Each word highlights as it is read. Each word in the sentence can be changed by the child but the sentence will still make sense or nonsense.
Story, Concepts in Print & Comprehension
(2 Lessons)
This skill allows the child to retell a story with pictures. An illustrated and spoken story of 3 – 4 pages/pictures is presented. Pages/pictures repeat their narration on rollover. The child arranges the pictures to retell the story in the correct order.
