Square Panda is a Multisensory Learning System!
Square Panda is a learning system that helps your child learn to read using multisensory play. Designed for kids two and older, the playset blends physical and digital learning as it keeps kids entertained through age-appropriate games grounded in research-based curriculum. Early readers play their way to reading fluency as they engage with physical smart letters that connect them to a library of learning games. Every play session guides children through the game as they explore the alphabet, letter sounds, discover rhymes, build vocabulary and more!
Each Square Panda Learning Game is grounded in research-based curriculum!
Square Panda comes with a library of diverse learning games, all derived from research-based curriculum that helps kids build early reading skills as they stay engaged through play. Parents simply download each game on the App Store or Google Play and their kids can dive right into the fun! The growing library of content currently hosts the following 11 games, all of which are included:
Square Panda SquareLand
Square Panda Bowling
Square Panda Bubbles
Square Panda Farming

Each learning game has different features that focus on different areas, such as letter orientation, word play and letter confusion. The curriculum grows with your child, keeping them moving forward to achieve new learning milestones.
Parents can track their child’s progress in Square Panda’s Parent Portal!
The Square Panda Playground allows parents to keep track of their child’s learning progress, giving them visibility into problem areas in need of attention, such as letter orientation, word play and letter confusion.

This database adds an element of personalization and surprise that delights children over and over again!
Square Panda is loved by both parents and educators!
The Benefits of a Multisensory Learning Approach
Research suggests that optimal learning happens when children use multiple senses, such as sight, sound and touch. Online-only reading programs and apps only engage two senses – hearing and sight – they do not have the critically important tactile stimulation that comes from having physical letters to touch, hold and play with.
That’s why Square Panda includes a Bluetooth-enabled Playset and 45 Smart Letters that your child can grasp and manipulate when playing, helping to create a more immersive and effective learning experience.
