Phonic Funnies

Reading Friend uses PHONIC FUNNIES to help children learn to recognize the small sound units (phonemes) that make up words, and how to put the sounds together to form words. We accomplish this with a series of humorous animated stories, poems and songs.

Each of the stories is available in an interactive version that provides a phonetic pronunciation of each word in the story. Simply by clicking on a word, the student can hear a word "sounded out," phoneme by phoneme.
