Learning to read is fun and easy when phonics rules are taught by cool characters using music and games. Students begin by learning short vowels and consonants. Next, the sounds are put together to read words, phrases, and sentences. Soon students read cute stories and sing songs to build fluency and comprehension. After students master the lessons on both volumes, they have the skills to read any book.
Ages 6 & up.
Cool songs, entertaining performers, and colorful animation (on phonics videos) take learners on a musical adventure that removes the struggle from learning to read. Students control the pace, advancing as they master each new skill, so they can practice on their own and feel proud of their accomplishments.

Rock ’N Learn Phonics is based on one of the most researched and validated phonics approaches of all time, dating back to the 1950s when phonics instruction became the solution to “why Johnny can’t read.” Now with a modern twist, developed by educators working with rock and pop musicians, Rock ’N Learn Phonics is the perfect supplement to any reading curriculum.
