What is it?
The best available internet based educational resource that teaches young children, including those with learning disabilities how to read by starting with/using phonics. Beginner EFL adults learners can use it too, it’s really helpful. It is part of the ClickN READ series, which is a highly-developed reading programme; actually this programme is the greatest in the world! Looney Tunes Phonics turns kids into expert readers with its 100 interactive lessons that are definitely entertaining and simple to follow.
Parents generally worry about their child’s progress in reading more than other subjects, and so they should. A child must develop excellent reading skills if he/she wants to do well in other subjects like maths, science, English, history etc. They should not find word recognition difficult when they need to read texts speedily for comprehension purposes. Reading is vital if children want to succeed in their studies, therefore, parents ought to help their kids become excited about learning how to read and encourage their development in reading skills.
Parents play a vital role in their child’s development and are often keen to be hands on when it comes helping them improve their education. Every parent worries about whether their child is motivated and performing well at school. It is natural to be concerned about your child’s overall progress, although try not to be too anxious! Looney Tunes ClickN READ can give you a real helping hand. The course tutorial control setting enables you to exactly match your child’s personal needs for inspirational content plus helpful comments. Let me explain control settings to you in more detail:
Allow me to clarify what happens in a lesson briefly to begin with. Each lesson contains four consecutive stages: The Letter Sound Stage, the Listening Stage, the Reading stage and the Speed Stage. During the first stage, the Letter Sound, the child learns about phonic letter sounds with Professor Wizbot. In the second stage, the Listening, the child learns phonic word blending, such as It & Mit. The third stage involves reading, here the child learns how to read individual word and sentences. During the final stage, Speed Read, the child rehearses all the phonics they’ve learned in the previous stages; they are expected to recognise them as quickly as possible so that their brains can master decoding – an essential skill for reading. After completing all four stages, the child receives a progress report that clearly highlights their strengths and weaknesses, allowing you to select future lessons accordingly. What you do with your child is entirely up to you after this, for instance, you can repeat lessons or move on to the next one if they are doing well. Looney Tunes Phonics is a flexible programme, designed to meet the individual needs of each child.

Dr. J. Ron Nelson
Dr. Nelson is a well-known premature education research professor in America. He invented the Looney Tunes ClickN READ Phonics syllabus and each element of the computer program. He constructed the entire display screen plus the communicative teaching settings, and he wrote all the on screen words Professor Wixom states. In essence, your child is being taught by him directly!
Looney Tunes ClickN READ offers excellent progress reports for both parents & teachers.
Parents and teachers can view each students mouse and keyboard entry whenever they want and from all onscreen computers. Looney Tunes ClickN READ progress reports are incredibly accurate and precise; no other programme can produce the same results.
Cumulative Results Report
The cumulative results report merges each individual report into one simple condensed report tailored for every user. You can view percentage results and make comparisons with other people who use ClickN READ. You can see precisely where your child requires additional input and do the lessons again if needed.
You need access to an internet to be able to use the syllabus; it’s better to have high speed internet, although it’s not essential. You can reduce the amount of time your children spend watching the Looney Tunes amusement between the academic segments if you don’t have enough time or your internet speed is too low.
Looney Tunes Phonics combines a healthy amount of lively content so that the amusement part of the course is intensified. It takes longer to load the lessons that present fresh and lively stories at first compared to others. It is advisable to organise the amusement content to short or medium on the student setup page if you have a slow internet connection or limited class time.
No doubt you will have plenty of questions about the programme, so I have written some useful information on this page. Read on and you’ll find that most of your queries are addressed in this section. You can always email Looney Tunes Phonics if you have any additional questions too.
The sample Cumulative Report has 61 letter sounds shown individually and 13 additional instruction areas, which emerge in each lesson. The report tells you:
- How many times each sound appeared up-to-date.
- The number of the lesson/s teaching each letter sound.
- The number of times the students recognised the sounds correctly during their first attempt( calculated into a percentage).
