When you first subscribe to Hooked on Phonics, you'll be asked either at checkout, or in the App itself,
"Does your child know the letters of the alphabet and the sound each letter represents?"
If your answer is NO, you'll start in the Pre-reader section of the App (and Practice Packs) at Step 1.
If your answer is YES, you'll start in the Learn to Read section of the App (and Practice Packs) at Step 1.
If you're not sure if your child has mastered lower and uppercase letters and letter sounds, start with Pre-reader. Your child will have a chance to practice skills they've mastered, building confidence while filling in any gaps along the way. You may move freely between numbered steps in each section, but note that within each numbered step, your child will need to complete an activity to progress to the next activity within that step.
