The Letter Sound Chamber

Learn Phonics Sounds

All phonics lessons begin here. The onscreen teacher, “ClickN KID”, gently guides your child through interactive phonics sound exercises as they learn to read. Children learn all of the letter sounds and their corresponding letter shapes required for reading mastery as well as spelling and keyboarding skills. Each phonics lesson introduces a new sound which is then practiced along with five previously introduced sounds.

Letter Sounds – Screen Selection

Over the 100 lessons 61 phonics letter sounds are systematically introduced and practiced with previously taught sounds. 995 total presentations.

Letter Sounds – Keyboard Spelling

The same 61 phonics letter sounds taught in the screen selection exercise must be spelled on the keyboard. 995 total presentations.

The Listening Cube

Learn Phonics Word Blending

Next, your child is automatically taken to the Listening Cube which systematically incorporates the letters taught in the first Letter Sound Chamber into beginning, middle and ending sounds in words. Those same sounds are then incorporated into a word blending exercise which teaches your child how to decode the individual sounds in a word and learn to read the sound of the word.

Beginning, Middle & Ending Sounds in Words

Your child will learn which letter, from a set of letters shown, matches the beginning, middle, or ending sound in 188 presentations.

Word Blending

Your child will learn how to blend separate sounds together to form the sound of 357 individual words.

The Reading Room

Learn Word & Sentence Reading Skills

The Reading Room now incorporates the letter sounds and word blends, learned in the first two reading skills environments, into new words and progressively builds your child’s ability to read complete English sentences and short stories with ease.

Progressively over the 100 lessons the following exercises are presented: Sight Words, Spelling Sight Words, Word families, Word Endings, Silent E Rule, Spelling Silent E Words, Making Sentences, Sentence Dictation, Prefixes and Suffixes. All new elements taught in each lesson are incorporated into the last exercise, Story Reading. The story reading exercise contains the equivalent content of dozens of children’s early reading books.

Sight Words

Learn to read the most commonly used words in the English language, also referred to as “high frequency sight words.”

Spelling Sight Words

Learn to read and spell words from the Sight Words exercise using the keyboard.

Word Families

Word families are groups of words that are closely related enough to form a ‘family’. Learn hundreds of words belonging to dozens of word families.

Word Endings

Learn the most commonly used word endings such as “s”, “ed”, “ing”, “y”, and more.

Silent E Rule

Learn how to identify words that contain a “silent e” and learn their proper pronunciation.

Making Sentences

Learn to read and construct sentences using nearly 400 different words.

Sentence Dictation

Learn to read and spell complete sentences using the keyboard.


Children learn the meaning of prefixes, how to use them and definitions of the words they are used with. Examples of the many prefixes taught are “pre”, “re”, “sub”, “dis” and “non.”


Children learn the meaning of suffixes, how to use them and definitions of the words they are used with. Examples of the many suffixes taught are “ful”, “less”, “ure”, “ive” and “ion.”

Story Reading

Children view and read along. The short stories include letter sounds, words and other elements previously taught. From single sentence to multiple sentence stories, equaling a small library of early reading books.

The Speed Chamber

Practice Phonics Skills Learned

Following the Reading Room, your child enters the Speed Chamber where all letter sounds and words taught in the lessons are reviewed and practiced. Your child must make as many correct responses as possible within a user set number of instruction minutes. This environment builds the automatic decoding skill mastery needed to learn to read.

Letter Sound Review

Presented in random order, children quickly learn to identify letter shapes for letter sounds.

Word Review

Presented in a random order, children quickly learn to identify words that match the word sounds.
