Ordering

Q. Do you offer discounts for schools?
A. We are taking part in Apple’s Volume Purchase Program for Schools. Taking advantage of that program, any school/district purchasing 20 or more apps will benefit from a 50% discount on the listed price.

Q. Is this app available for iPhones and other tablets besides the iPad?
A. Yes, this iPhone is now available for iPhones in addition to iPads!

Flashing

Q. When I select plain letters, why are all the icons there except the “book” icon for hearing the letter sound stories in English or Spanish?
A. Although all of the other feature icons are accessible with plain letters, the letter sound story icons are only present when the Lively Letters type of letters are selected, as the stories reference specific details in the pictures.

Q. How do I stop the letter sound story if I don’t want to hear the whole thing?
A. You can just press the “ear” icon to play the sound, and that will stop the story.

Q. Should I choose to work first with lowercase or uppercase letters?
A. In Lively Letters™ the initial focus is on lowercase letters for best carryover to improve phonemic awareness, reading, and spelling, especially for struggling students. For non-struggling students, working with uppercase letters before or while working on lowercase is not as much of an issue.

Q. I noticed that in the uppercase letter selections, you have a “Q,” as well as “QU.” Which should I use?
A. We gave you both options to select from, with separate stories, because some teachers prefer to teach the letter “Q” alone. Others prefer to teach it with the “U,” to match the lowercase “qu.”

Q. When selecting plain uppercase letters, there is a “C,” and there is also a “C” with what looks like an upside down “v.” What is that?
A. That upside down “v” represents the picture of the rock that is in the Lively Letters™ story for both lowercase and uppercase hard and soft “C.”

Tracking

Q. Can you give me an example of how I would make one letter or sound change at a time?
A. Here’s an example of a word chain, where each word is different by one letter or sound. This list includes real and nonsense words: “rat, bat, bit, dit, dig, dog, log, mog…”

Matching

Q. What letters should I choose when playing the Matching Game?
A. Choose the letters that the student has been using already in the Flashing Activity.
