ONLINE BEGINNING READING PROGRAM
ClickN READ Phonics is an online beginning reading program designed for preK through grade 3. The program's scientifically based instruction is derived from the extant research literature on effective reading instruction as reviewed and summarized by two independent research panels-National Academy of Sciences (NAS, 1998) and National Reading Panel (NICHD, 2000). The ClickN READ Phonics includes 100 carefully sequenced lessons to ensure that children acquire the phonemic awareness, alphabetic understanding and automaticity skills necessary for reading success. Each lesson consists of 5 to 10 short instructional activities that encompass a 20 to 30-minute session. The lessons are used in conjunction with strategically connected storybooks that are selected to match the beginning reading skills being taught as well as the motivational characteristics of the students. Telecommunication technology is fast becoming the communication of today, and it is an exceptionally efficient way for children, parents and teachers to access the ClickN READ Phonics Program.
