Start down the magical road to reading success with this adorable, easy to learn, board game which includes 336 static cling letters, fun activity cards, phonics books and motivating certificates.

Phonics Testimonial Number8
8. Below is the last paragraph of a product review written by Kate Kessler, product review manager for the renowned magazine “The Old School House”:
“You will also likely have a child motivated to learn. My daughter jumps up with excitement when I say it is time to play her game. She really is enjoying it, and what is better is that she is learning her phonics at the same time. I have taught four other children to read, and not one of them was as excited about learning as my littlest girl is to learn this way. We will accomplish the same set of knowledge in a much more gentle and interesting manner. This is a real winner to our family.”
Phonics Testimonial Number 9
9. Eight children were given to me midterm of the school year. They were failing because they had not learned to read as had their class mates. This program then became their only reading curriculum. Because of Ring Around the Phonics seven of them quickly learned to read, passed the reading exam, and were promoted with their class. This game changed their future. It works better and faster than anything that I have ever used.”
“The game improves communication and listening skills as well. It is fun, and addresses all learning styles. I found that using the marking chip as indicated by the instructions is important.”- Roma Cox
