At this time of year, millions of American children head back to school, and millions of moms heave a collective sigh of relief. However, while many parents are enjoying the cessation of the droning, “But, Mom, I’m bored,” others cringe as their children’s sighs of boredom are replaced by cries of frustration. While the back-to-school season can be a time of excitement and anticipation for many, it is a time of anxiety for many children who struggle in school and for parents who want to ensure the best education possible for their children. For parents looking to give their students an edge, As Seen On TV educational resources have provided a convenient means of enhancing reading, math, and study skills among children from preschool through college. One of the most enduring educational products sold on television is Hooked On Phonics.
It is hard to believe that a quarter of a century has passed since American families first heard the familiar catchphrase, “Hooked On Phonics worked for me!” Designed by a father struggling to help his son overcome reading problems, the Hooked On Phonics learning system was introduced to consumers in 1987, and since that time, the system has continued to grow and evolve. Originally a simple, yet effective, learn-to-read system, Hooked on Phonics now encompasses new and varied media and technologies to teach reading and other subjects, relying on books, flash cards, computer games, and music to engage learners.
Through partnerships with educational agencies such as KinderCare Learning Centers and Educate, Inc./Sylvan Learning, Hooked On Phonics developed programs for study skills success and other subjects in addition to reading: Hooked On Spanish, Hooked On Spelling, Hooked On Handwriting, and others.
Recently, Hooked On Phonics re-vamped its flagship Learn to Read program to include more interactive technologies and new materials. Through SeenOnTVExpress.com, you can take advantage of a thirty-day trial of the Hooked On Phonics Learn to Read system, which includes:
- 8 DVDs to introduce letters, sounds and combinations
- 8 workbooks to reinforce and practice the skills introduced in the DVDs

- Online interactive tools for practice through games and printable worksheets.
- Quick Start Guide

Research has continually demonstrated that children who are successful in school are more likely to enjoy school and learning. As your child heads back to school, help him or her to get hooked on learning with Hooked On Phonics.
