Excellent app for beginning readers

I purchased this app for my 3-year-old daughter last year and she loved it. Now, after one year, she is reading between 2nd and 4th grade levels. Obviously, we have been reading together through that time, but Hooked on Phonics was the right choice to teach her to sound out words and learn basic sight words. And we all love the Big Pig song!

Awesome app for summer bridge

Got this for my kindergartner who is entering 1st grade next Fall.  He already loves it and I’m sure he’ll be well prepared for the added workload and increased expectations of his new teacher. by: 5girl8

If your child is between the ages of 3 and 8 and reading below a 3rd grade reading level, he should be ready to use this program, either to get ahead in his learning or to improve his reading skills.

The updated Hooked on Phonics Learn to Read program aligns with the most current Common Core Standards for Reading Foundational Skills for Kindergarten through Second Grade, including:

  1. Concepts of Print
  2. Phonological Awareness
  3. Letter-Sound Correspondence
  4. High-Frequency Word Recognition

The new version has many more layers to it. There is now something for every kind of learning style:

  1. For Visual learners, there are DVDs with videos that illustrate the concepts as well as workbooks that allow children to follow along as they watch.
  2. For Auditory learners, there are silly, sing-along songs to help children remember the concepts being taught.
  3. For Physical (Kinesthetic) learners, there are flash cards and suggestions for off-the-page activities using real-world objects. In addition, there are online games that allow children to interact with the words and practice the skills.

It comes with a library of 36 storybooks- some written by award-winning authors- that are custom-created for the purpose of setting the child up for reading success.

It’s fun! The videos are cute. The songs are silly and catchy; they make the kids want to dance. The program is set up so that the child is rewarded at every step.

The new Learn to Read now has a mobile app (of the same name), which allows families to help their kids learn how to read on smartphones and tablets.

The Hooked on Phonics Learn to Read app is based on the proven teaching methods of the Hooked on Phonics books and DVD sets. The 12 Steps in the app are designed for a Kindergarten reading level, whereas the physical product is for Pre-K through Second Grade. In addition, the app covers more sight words and has a library of 36 leveled eBooks that are only available within the app. These eBooks were written to correspond to the sounds and words being taught in each of the lessons, so the eBooks are 100% decodable to children who have completed the lessons. Thus, the eBook library gives children even more practice reading and more opportunities for success, which helps to boost their self confidence and pride as readers.
