ClickN READ Phonics teaches the entire kindergarten to 3rd grade phonics curriculum taught at USA public schools through 100 interactive cartoon animated online phonics lessons. Any child can learn English, and learn to read correctly, in a phonics game-like environment that is great fun and easy to use.
You can be assured that you are purchasing the world's most effective reading program because the research based phonics curriculum is designed by nationally recognized research professor Dr. J. Ron Nelson. All other learn to read programs are simply toys when compared to ClickN READ Phonics.
Our phonics program is designed for children as young as 4 years old learning to read English for the first time, older children struggling to learn to read, learning disabled children and even adults learning English as a second language.
The Letter Sound Chamber - Learn Phonics Sounds
All phonics lessons begin here. The onscreen teacher, "ClickN KID", gently guides your child through interactive phonics sound exercises as they learn to read. Children learn all of the letter sounds and their corresponding letter shapes required for reading mastery as well as spelling and keyboarding skills. Each phonics lesson introduces a new sound which is then practiced along with five previously introduced sounds.
Letter Sounds - Screen Selection - Lessons 1 to 100
Over the 100 lessons 61 phonics letter sounds are systematically introduced and practiced with previously taught sounds. 995 total presentations.
Letter Sounds - Keyboard Spelling - Lessons 1 to 100
The same 61 phonics letter sounds taught in the screen selection exercise must be spelled on the keyboard. 995 total presentations.
The Listening Cube - Learn Phonics Word Blending
Next, your child is automatically taken to the Listening Cube which systematically incorporates the letters taught in the first Letter Sound Chamber into beginning, middle and ending sounds in words. Those same sounds are then incorporated into a word blending exercise which teaches your child how to decode the individual sounds in a word and learn to read the sound of the word.
Beginning, Middle and Ending Sounds In Words - Lessons 1 to 25
Your child will learn which letter, from a set of letters shown, matches the beginning, middle, or ending sound in 188 presentations of these recited words:
Word Blending - Lessons 1 to 100
Your child will learn how to blend separate sounds together to form the sound of these 357 individual words:
The Reading Room - Learn Word and Sentence Reading Skills
The Reading Room now incorporates the letter sounds and word blends, learned in the first two reading skills environments, into new words and progressively builds your child's ability to read complete English sentences and short stories with ease.
Progressively over the 100 lessons the following exercises are presented: Sight Words, Spelling Sight Words, Word families, Word Endings, Silent E Rule, Spelling Silent E Words, Making Sentences, Sentence Dictation, Prefixes and Suffixes. All new elements taught in each lesson are incorporated into the last exercise, Story Reading. The story reading exercise contains the equivalent content of dozens of children's early reading books.
Sight Words - Lessons 11 to 100
Your child will learn to read the 74 most commonly used words in the English language, referred to as "high frequency sight words", during 705 total presentations of these sight words:
Making Sentences - Lessons 50 to 100
Your child will learn to read and construct sentences from a random presentation of the words of these 50 sentences containing 388 words:
Spelling Sight Words - Lessons 14 to 100
Your child will learn to read and spell the 74 words from the Sight Words exercise using the keyboard during 261 total presentations.
Sentence Dictation - Lessons 55 to 100
Your child will learn to read and spell these complete sentences containing 324 words using the keyboard:
Word Families - Lessons 15 to 100
Word families are groups of words that are closely related enough to each other to form a 'family'. Your child will learn to read 425 words that belong to these 69 word families:
Prefixes - Lessons 80 to 87
Children learn the meanings of the prefixes "pre", "re", "sub", "dis", "mis" and "non" as well as learn to identify the meanings of these 25 words containing a prefix:
Word Endings - Lessons 21 to 79
Your child will learn the word endings "s", "ed", "ing", "y", and "er" in 311 total presentations of these 167 words:
Suffixes - Lessons 88 to 96
Children learn the meanings of the suffixes "ful", "less", "ure", "ive" and "ion" as well as learn to identify the meanings of these 21 words containing a suffix:
Silent E Rule - Lessons 47 to 59
Children learn to read and identify words that contain a "silent e" and their proper pronunciation in 48 total presentations of these 32 silent E words:
Story Reading - Lessons 3 to 100
Children view and read along with short stories that include letter sounds and words taught in the lesson as well as elements from previous lessons. Short stories start with single sentences and quickly advance to 3 sentences with the last 68 lessons containing 6 sentences each. 489 total sentences which represent a small library of children's early reading books.
Spelling Silent E Words - Lessons 47 to 59
Children learn to spell the same 32 silent E words on the keyboard that are taught in the Silent E Rule exercise, above.
The Speed Chamber - Practice Phonics Skills Learned
Following the Reading Room, your child enters the Speed Chamber where all letter sounds and words taught in the lessons are reviewed and practiced. Your child must make as many correct responses as possible within a user set number of instruction minutes. This environment builds the automatic decoding skill mastery needed to learn to read.
Letter Sound Review - Lessons 4 to 100
Children learn to quickly identify letter shapes for letter sounds presented in a random order. 4460 total presentations of 61 sounds over 96 lessons.
Word Recognition Review - Lessons 4 to 100
Children learn to read words quickly that match the word sounds presented in a random order. 2910 total presentations of 120 words over 96 lessons.
Industry Best Progress Reports
Industry Best Progress Reports
Every single click that the child enters while completing all 100 lessons are saved on our computer systems. Combined with the extensive instruction in the program and the fact that answers are never "given away", our progress reports show you a level of precision not found in any other phonics reading program!
Cumulative Results Report (Shown) All instructional activities that appear throughout all lessons are shown along with the total number of times that element was presented.
The percentage your child responded correctly on the first attempt is shown. The average percentage for All Users that have ever used ClickN READ Phonics is also shown.
Simply compare your child's scores to the All Users score to know exactly where your child needs additional help. The Lesson Number column shows you exactly which lesson(s) to repeat for low scoring phonics sounds.
For School Accounts, an additional column shows the average percentages for all students in the teacher's class. Teachers quickly identify specific phonics skills that the class as a whole is struggling with.
Individual Lesson Report (Not Shown)
At the end of each lesson, the individual lesson report is displayed showing exactly how the child performed on that lesson. These reports are also saved in your member area and a copy is saved for all repeated lessons as well!
The red arrows on the report indicate the following information about this child's reading skills:
1) Letter Sounds - This child is struggling with the C, TH and V letter sounds.
2) Spelling Sight Words - This is the exercise where the sight words must be spelled on the keyboard. With a 98% score on the Sight Words exercise (screen selection) it is clear that the child knows the sight words. This child is having difficulty with the keyboard.
School Account License Usage Report
Valuable Management Tool
This report is a very valuable tool for schools using the program allowing schools to see exactly where licenses are being used.
For School Administrators The program usage by all teachers and all students is shown. This allows the school program administrator to access data for reporting requirements, to allocate student licenses more effectively where they are needed and to see exactly where help may be needed to increase usage.
For Teachers All students enrolled in that teachers class are shown. This allows the teacher to see which children need to receive more time on the program as well as plan next activities for the students that are moving ahead of the class with an earlier program completion date.
