Both the App + Practice Packs and Learn to Read Boxed Kits start at the Pre-Reader level, introducing letter names and letter sounds as a foundation for reading, so your child does not need to know their letter names or letter sounds to begin. Fun songs, simple stories and practice activities will solidify your child’s skills around recognizing letters and their sounds as they master the alphabet.

It’s always a great idea to talk with your child’s teacher about how you are using Hooked on Phonics with your family. Most teachers are thrilled to hear children are getting an additional source of reading instruction to fill in any gaps and/or provide powerful tools to get ahead. Over 5 million families and thousands of schools have used our programs for more than 25 years. The current Hooked on Phonics program is aligned with educational standards for all 50 states.
