Re: Favorite phonics program?
I've used Hooked on Phonics starting at age 2 with both of my kids. They both knew upper and lower case letters and nearly all the sounds by age 3. We mainly use the DVD and talk through the pages in the preschool workbook at that age. Sometimes we'll have a scavenger hunt of things that start with a certain letter. My oldest started reading on his own a few months before turning 4. Both of my kids love it and I love that it's simple and easy.
