It’s well established that phonics are essential for reading instruction, but there are many phonics programs available, so how do you choose? Our family has been extremely impressed with Looney Tunes Phonics – an online phonics curriculum. Read on to see if Looney Tunes Phonics might be right for you, too.
Are you looking for online games that progress with your child?
Online games have a lot to teach kids, but because most games are just one level, kids can’t build on what they’ve learned. Looney Tunes phonics is an online phonics curriculum that saves your child’s progress, gives you a report on that progress, and helps you decide when your child is ready for the next level.
Are you looking for a phonics program that really teaches kids to read?
The Looney Tunes Phonics program is research based and introduces letter sounds and words in the order recommended by experts. The program is suited to both beginning readers and those that need intervention or recovery.
Are you looking for a phonics program for kids as young as 3?
If your child can use a mouse, he or she can learn to read with Looney Tunes Phonics. You can start the program at your child’s current level, with the first lessons simply teaching letter sounds.
Are you looking for a phonics program your kids actually WANT TO DO?
Let’s face it – it takes a lot to impress kids these days. With thousands of video games other digital media competing for their attention, “the learning stuff” has to entertain as well as educate. That’s where the Looney Tunes part comes in. After completing each section of a lesson, kids are rewarded with a short looney tunes video. Parents can control the length of these videos, or decide to exclude them altogether. Our preschooler loves the videos and the robot teacher.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, Looney Tunes Phonics may be right for you. You can find out more on their website, or by following them on facebook and twitter. I’ve also put together this short video of a phonics lesson, so you can see how it works:
