This study was conducted with the aim of developing and evaluating Come and Read, Sayang! English phonics software as a teaching aid for preschool teachers. The development and evaluation of this software is implemented based on the ADDIE Instructional Model which consists of Analysis Phase, Design Phase, Development Phase, Implementation Phase and Evaluation Phase, while the Bottom Up Model is used as a guide to develop software learning content. Quantitative research was used to collect data from respondents under the Implementation Phase. The Usability questionnaire was used as an instrument to collect data on the usability of the software as a teaching aid for preschool teachers. A total of 34 preschool teachers from Zon Juara in Daerah Kuantan were involved as respondents to test the usability of the software through Usability Test under the Implementation Phase. These respondents were selected through purposive sampling technique. The content of the questionnaire was validated by five experts with a validity index of .82. The alpha coefficients for the usability assessment are between .92-.99. By using this software, users can apply phonics skills to pronounce words. Thus, it meets the standards of Kurikulum Standard Prasekolah Kebangsaan (KSPK) (Revised 2017). Implications from a methodological point of view, adherence to the five phases of the ADDIE Instructional Design Model has successfully helped researchers to produce an English phonics software that can be used as a quality teaching aid and complies with the KSPK.
