KIDS SAY "WHAT'S UP, DOC?" TO CLICKN KIDS'® GROWING EDUCATIONAL LINEUP FEATURING ICONIC CARTOON
LOS ANGELES - Fall 2011 - ClickN KIDS®, Inc., the leader in interactive online literacy programs for children, has teamed up with Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP) to send one of the most beloved classes of animated characters back to school with Looney Tunes™ ClickN READ® Phonics. The recently-launched, web-based educational program pairs some of the world's most famous cartoon characters with one of the most advancedtm research-based phonics programs for children. Expected to both entertain and teach children throughout the 2011 school and holiday seasons, Looney Tunes ClickN READ Phonics is the latest addition to the ClickN KIDS family of online, award-winning programs, which includes ClickN READ® Phonics and ClickN SPELL®.
Based on an education curriculum used throughout the nation's leading classrooms, Looney Tunes ClickN READ Phonics is built using the latest research from nationally-recognized education expert, Dr. J. Ron Nelson, and showcases ClickN KIDS' leading technology. Created for children in grades kindergarten to third grade, the program teaches core reading concepts, including simple letter sounds, word blends, sight words, silent letter rules and sentence dictation, ensuring that kids become accomplished readers in no time. In addition, Looney Tunes ClickN READ Phonics continually engages users with cartoons created exclusively for the program, which feature the iconic characters that have entertained children for generations. Through the combination of the program's curriculum and Looney Tunes animations, ClickN KIDS reinforces the established notion that children absorb more information when having fun.
Children will meet a new character, the quirky and encouraging Professor Wizbot, in Looney Tunes ClickN READ Phonics. Professor Wizbot guides them through the program's 100 interactive lessons (each consisting of six to 14 activities and ranging from 15 to 30 minutes) One Click at a Time®. Before and after each activity, Looney Tunes characters entertain and reward children with their mischievous and hilarious antics.
An original Looney Tunes animation plays, allowing kids to watch Taz™, Tweety™ and Bugs Bunny™ embarking on their latest adventures before kids move onto the next learning experience. Through this combination of lessons and entertainment, children receive an enriched learning experience as they work to improve their reading skills.
And that's not all, folks. Looney Tunes ClickN READ Phonics encourages independent learning, which means children can safely use the program without the direct supervision of an adult. With easy online access to both lesson-specific and cumulative reports, parents and teachers can monitor students' progress any time to ensure continued improvement.
"For years, children have found endless enjoyment watching the zany characters of the Looney Tunes gang. That satisfaction, along with the self-esteem that comes from knowing how to read and spell, is exactly what kids will experience when using our programs," said Armie Carabet, co-founder and chief executive officer for ClickN KIDS. "The fusion of these childhood icons with our award-winning education programs has created an invaluable combination guaranteeing that children not only learn, but have fun."
