ClickN’ READ Phonics: Now Endorsed by Public and Private Schools Nationwide
More than 1,500 Schools Have Launched Learn-to-Read Phonics Program

Los Angeles-CA-August 7, 2007- ClickN’ READ Phonics, recently rated the #1 learn to read software program by TopTenReviews™, has now been utilized by more than 1,500 schools nationwide. ClickN’ READ Phonics is a patent pending program that teaches children how to read on their own via a series of 100 entertaining and interactive online reading phonics lessons that take beginning readers all the way to a 3rd grade level.

ClickN’ READ: Simulates Live Classroom Environment Via On-Screen Instructor
Alan Scalone, President of ClickN’ KIDs, Inc. stated that “ClickN' READ is the perfect reading resource for schools because, unlike traditional drill-and-practice programs previously used by schools, ClickN’ READ incorporates the principals of direct instruction and simulates live classroom instruction that provides constant feedback and positive reinforcement.” To accomplish this, ClickN’ READ Phonics features an entertaining and animated character that serves as an expert reading tutor for children – taking them through a series of 100 sequential lessons that directly align with all major language arts core curriculums used by public schools.

ClickN’ READ: Authored by Nationally Recognized Research Professor, Meets all Standards
ClickN' READ Phonics was authored by nationally recognized research professor Dr. J. Ron Nelson. Based on the National Reading Panel research, the curriculum meets all U.S. federal and state educational guidelines as mandated under the No Child Left Behind Act. The program automatically instills in children the critical blend of skills necessary for proficient reading, including letter identification, phonemic awareness, alphabetic principle, high frequency sight words, word blending, word families, word endings, storybook reading, and spelling. In addition, ClickN’ READ Phonics saves time and money by dramatically reducing the costs for teacher aides required to administer reading intervention. Another major benefit for schools who use ClickN’ READ Phonics is that the program does not require expensive or time-consuming software installation, program set up, or teacher training.
