Hear What Other Teachers Think:

Beth Quarmby, St George’s International School
My children absolutely loved their ‘hero training’ and I saw great improvements in both their segmenting and blending.
Susan Craig, Rangeway Primary School, WA
I have seen a huge improvement in my Kindy children’s letter recognition and the speed in which they are now able to locate and remember. Some are even starting to blend the CVC words. It is a fantastic program!
Hajir Alsalami, Al-Faisal College, NSW
It is making such a difference with my students, especially the ones who struggle with reading and phonemic awareness. I have seen so much improvement in class as a result of Phonics Hero.
Lauren Stretton, Covenant Christian School, NSW
The repetition is great and the consistency of the program means students know what to do but get excited about the new and different characters (they love Super Ted!).
