ClickN READ Phonics

ClickN READ Phonics acts as a one-on-one tutor to teach the entire kindergarten to 3rd grade phonics curriculum used in US public schools. The teachers are likable cartoon characters that deliver 100 interactive 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! It is in use in over 100 countries and is being used widely to learn English as a second language.

Is it a Toy or a Tool?

Computer based educational products can be a viable tool or a fun toy. Of course, the results are different. So let’s talk about tools. A tool is based on the “body” of research that has proven what works to teach a subject area. For language arts the “body” of research is the National Reading Panel (NRP) study, a study of the best 100,000 studies that had been conducted from the 1960′s to 1997 on what works to teach reading. All USA school language arts curriculums are federally mandated to be based on the NRP study. In the toys category are products such as Your Baby Can Read, Baby Einstein, Hooked on Phonics, The Phonics Game and a host of others. No direct instruction, mostly entertainment and with very little actual instruction.

With ClickN READ Phonics you are assured to be purchasing the most effective reading program on the market. Why? Because the research based phonics curriculum is designed by nationally recognized research professor Dr. J. Ron Nelson. Other learn to read programs are toy-like; lots of fun for kids but not curriculum than offers a money back guarantee that the user will learn to read.
Our phonics program is designed for children as young as 4 who are learning to read English for the first time, older children struggling to learn to read, learning disabled children and children learning English as a second language. Even adults that are learning English as a second language like ClickN READ Phonics!

How and What Does Your Child Learn?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Reports 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 
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
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
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.
