Super Why! Reading Camps
About The Show
SUPER WHY was created to help children ages 3-6 learn to read through interactive story adventures. SUPER WHY features a team of literacy-powered super heroes: Alpha Pig (with Alphabet Power), Wonder Red (with Word Power), Princess Presto (with Spelling Power), and Super Why (with the Power to Read).
SUPER WHY focuses on reading fundamentals. A comprehensive literacy curriculum incorporates key skills identified by the National Reading Panel: letter identification, word decoding, phonemic awareness, word encoding and phonics and reading comprehension.

About the Super Why! Reading Camps
Super Why Reading Camps are interactive learning adventures that show children the power of reading and guide them as they play with letters, sounds, and words.
