It’s Phonics Fair time! In this app from the hit PBS KIDS preschool series SUPER WHY, kids ages 3-6 celebrate as they learn reading, word-building and phonics skills through classic carnival-themed games.

Play five Super Reader literacy games that focus word building, reading and phonics skills. Your child will be introduced to 30 key word families, like the “–ALL” word family, as they play each game and earn stickers.


  • 5 interactive literacy games designed for phonics practice
  • 30 key word families that are needed to learn to read are featured in each game (such as the –ALL word family, with words like “ball,” “tall,” “wall”).
  • Over 130 stickers that kids can earn and decorate within the Phonics Fair Prize Booth
  • 8 phonics-themed SUPER WHY music videos
  • Parent tools, including a Progress Tracker and device notifications that allow you to follow your child’s progress with each word family
  • An advanced level of 30 additional word families is available for parents to purchase. Parents can challenge their young Super Readers when they’re ready to progress to more complex word families without having to download a new app. The advanced level includes Level 2 word families, such as “AKE” and “OOK” words, an expanded progress tracker and additional rewards and stickers.

    Introduce your child to the words in the word families by tapping and dragging Woofster’s roller coaster cars along the track to collect letters and form words.


    Take a ride with Princess Presto and match letters to their sounds to form words in a word family. Tap and spin the wheel to make the words appear.


    Come one, come all to Wonder Red’s ball toss game!, Practice reading words in a word family and matching them to their pictures.


    Tap all the words that belong in each word family. The more words you correctly press in a row, the faster the Whack-a-Word pegs will go!


    Fasten your seatbelts – it’s word bumping time with Super Why! Tap and drag bumper cars together with the correct letter and word on them to form a word.


    SUPER WHY Phonics Fair features a robust parents section, including a progress tracker that enables parents to see how their children are performing on each of the games and which word families may need more practice. Parents can also enable app notifications to be updated when their child has practiced a new set of ten word families and when their child has completed all of the first 30 word families.

    SUPER WHY Original is based on the PBS KIDS series SUPER WHY, produced by Out of the Blue Enterprises. The breakthrough preschool series is designed to help kids ages 3 to 6 with the critical skills that they need to learn (and love) to read!
