FAQ’s

The updated Hooked on Phonics Learn to Read program aligns with the most current Common Core Standards for Reading Foundational Skills for Kindergarten through Second Grade, including:

  1. Concepts of Print
  2. Phonological Awareness
  3. Letter-Sound Correspondence
  4. High-Frequency Word Recognition

The new version has many more layers to it. There is now something for every kind of learning style:

  1. For Visual learners, there are DVDs with videos that illustrate the concepts as well as workbooks that allow children to follow along as they watch.
  2. For Auditory learners, there are silly, sing-along songs to help children remember the concepts being taught.
  3. For Physical (Kinesthetic) learners, there are flash cards and suggestions for off-the-page activities using real-world objects. In addition, there are online games that allow children to interact with the words and practice the skills.

It comes with a library of 36 storybooks- some written by award-winning authors- that are custom-created for the purpose of setting the child up for reading success.

It’s fun! The videos are cute. The songs are silly and catchy; they make the kids want to dance. The program is set up so that the child is rewarded at every step.

The new Learn to Read now has a mobile app (of the same name), which allows families to help their kids learn how to read on smartphones and tablets.

It was not designed to help children with learning disabilities, yet we hear from many families that it has been an effective tool for children with learning disabilities. We recommend you check out our product demo and see how the product works so you can decide for yourself.

It’s always a great idea to talk with your child’s teacher about his progress with our programs. Over 5 million families and thousands of schools have used our programs for more than 25 years. The new Learn to Read is now aligned with educational standards for all 50 states.
