The Back Story
Red Apple Reading is a Montana company founded in 2011 by educator Tammy Bennecke, with offices in Southern California. The program is expanding from its development phase (“Level A”), now available for sale on their website, to programs that will soon be available for the full range of pre-kindergarten through third grade reading students.

The mission of Red Apple Reading is to enhance the lives of countless children around the world by providing a fun, exciting, and effective alternative to the traditional methods of teaching reading to children.
The Client was in need of any online software that would provide explicit early reading instruction that is accessible to parents, in order to help more children learn how to read. The main aim behind developing this dais was to help as many children as possible by providing an online software site that would offer real fun and latest strategies used in effective teaching. The system would be designed for children ages 4-10 who are reading below a 3rd grade reading level, the essential years for learning how to read. The flagship program, ‘Learning to Read Level A,' focuses primarily on Kindergarten and 1st grade reading skills (ages 4-7). It’s based on Common Core State Standards and can be accessed from any computer with Internet access.
