Helping kids thrive in your classroom?

Play Roly eases the transition to classroom learning, giving every child early reading skills so he/she is ready to participate in classroom early literacy activities. Play Roly creates a positive academic and emotional experience in preschool and school, particularly for the kids at risk of falling through the cracks when learning in a group.

Sharing Play Roly is an early reading strategy to eliminate early literacy common barriers

When a parent engages in playing Roly for just two minutes daily with their child during the important developmental window of three and five years old, it will impact reading success in a few weeks. Learning letter sounds (often called phonemes), learning to blend letter sounds to form words, and learning to segment words into letter sounds are recognized as foundational skills children must learn in order to start reading. Early learning experts agree Play Roly can be trusted to give all kids the time they need to learn these essential skills.

A fun learn to read program for all kids

Play Roly, founded on the science of reading research, is recommended for all children, including those with complex learning needs and English as a second language. It promotes:

  • A quiet environment where it’s easier to hear word sounds
  • Repetitive learning with correctly pronounced phonemes
  • Holding phonemes (letter sounds) for over a second to provide more processing time
  • Ensuring blended phonemes are pronounced without breaks to sound more like speech
  • Directing the child to watch lips and say the phonemes
  • Practicing with play—this is wired into young kids as they happily do an activity, read a book,or sing a song they love again and again and again

Hear from a happy Mom
My five-year old) daughter read me her first book the other day! Play Roly was a huge help to her. She could remember letter sounds easily, but she struggled to blend them together. Now when she gets stuck on a word, she will sing the word, as if playing with Roly, to figure it out. I also have a three-year-old daughter. I found it's a great game to do with the kids together, as they both enjoy singing the song and playing the game.
