For the past month Doggie boy has been helping me test out the Looney Tunes ClickN READ® Phonics program Phonics Program. This web based phonics program helps children learn to read, by fun games and mini cartoons starting the various stars in the Looney Tune cartoons.
We started off at lesson 12 which was pegged at his current reading ability for his age and moved on all the way to lesson 15.
Doggie boy was thrilled to see mini cartoons which were shown after he has completed the various exercises within the lesson. Having the cartoons broken the monotony of sitting at the computer and concentrating for the whole lesson. Each lesson started out with identifying of the letter sound and is broken up into 8 small parts. I like the option of being able to replay the sounds so that it is easier for the child identify which letter/ word has been said. I also was able to control the amount of cartoon he got to watch while doing the lesson. There was a report given at the end of the lesson which identifies his weak areas with the option to repeat the lesson or to go on to the next one.
It took Doggie boy a while to get tuned to the accent of the robot giving instructions and being able to replay certain parts really helped him master the phonetic sounds which he was weak in.
The video here shows a walk through of a typical lesson
In all I found this program a great tool to assist parents/teachers in teaching phonics to pre-schoolers and it is interesting enough to captivate their attention.
