These animated videos contain songs that teach word families, phonics rules, and spelling patterns that help kids learn to read through music and movement, so they don't have to sit still to learn! They make phonics so quick and easy for your kids to learn, that you’ll wish you had this when YOU were a child!
This video collection teaches word families, phonics rules, and spelling patterns that help kids learn to read through music and movement. These songs help kids learn sh, th, and ch words, too! It also helps children learn to read words with songs for long vowels spelled with vowel digraphs (vowel teams), such as ea, ee, ai, ay, oa, igh, and the final e or “Bossy E” spelling rule. Also included are songs for the diphthongs oi, oy, ou, ow, au, aw, and also the r-controlled vowels ar, er, ir, and ur.
Kids with ADD, ADHD, autism, and other special needs learn particularly well with these songs and videos because they are active, fun, and the music makes them stick in long term memory, like an “earworm” you just can’t forget! In addition to basic phonics skills, these videos help kids develop phonemic awareness and the alphabetic principle via the new “Sound it Out” section that has been added into this animated version! In this section, kids learn to blend the sounds and segment (split up) the words into sounds as they learn to read them- all at the same time!
