"What really sets Square Panda apart are the tactile components. Students are touching and exploring letters while actively engaged in searching for them."
“The lowest students in the grade cycle through my class to use Square Panda. I have seen tremendous growth. Two students in particular have grown in their word recognition, writing, spelling, and confidence!”
"Square Panda addresses a variety of fundamental skills that Kindergarteners need in order to become lifelong learners and readers."
Square Panda combines letters with sounds in a tactile environment, turning tablets into phonics learning stations that leverage sight, sound, AND touch.
Square Panda’s multisensory approach can advance low-performing students’ foundational skills while helping other learners progress through exploratory play.
Square Panda supports children at school and at home—developing early reading skills with an eye to long-term challenges such as dropout prevention.
Square Panda serves as a foundational crosswalk between English and a students’ native language, as learners build their understanding of key phonics principles.
To engage all PreK-3 students, Square Panda advances phonological awareness, rhyming, blending, segmentation, letter-sound associations, decoding, encoding, and more.
Square Panda partners with Dr. Bruce McCandliss, neuroscience researcher at Stanford University, and follows the guidelines of the National Reading and National Literacy Panels.
