Hooked On Phonics Worked For Me
You know you remember this commercial. Well, when I started using Hooked on Phonics with my daughter, she was 4 years old. Now mind you this was my first time teaching a young child to read, and I was willing to try anything. This turned out to be the best decision I ever made. By the time we got through Level 1, she was reading at a 1st grade level. I was so very excited!
This was developed by leading educators based upon research on how do children learn to read, each session takes just 30 minutes or less (but of course you go at your child’s pace). It’s easy to see how their website brags that more than 3 million children are getting better grades. Now they have DVD’s to use, which I’m sure is a lot more exciting. When I used this with my daughter the DVD’s weren’t available, we used cassettes. I guess I just aged myself a little.
This Is How You Do It
- Learn to read new words by watching the DVD’s
- Practice the new sound combinations in the workbook
- Put it all together with stories using words just learned
What’s In The Box
- 8 DVDs & Workbooks, 36 Storybooks
- 4 Sets of Flashcards, 8 sets of stickers
- Full online access
- Storage and Display Box
Can I Take It With Me You Ask
Why yes, yes you can. Not only can you use it at home with the books but they have interactive videos, engaging stories and games. The Hooked on Phonics system fully synchronizes with your computer, tablet, or phone, making it usable anywhere, on any device, with or without an internet connection.
- The games are fully interactive
- There are more than 70 fully illustrated stories which enable your child to practice reading
- Experts in both education and entertainment have combined to make Hooked on Phonics a musical reading experience.
You can even track your kid’s progress all along the way and they can clearly see how far they have come on their reading journey and feel a sense of pride in their accomplishments. The more your child does their Hooked on Phonics lessons, the more trophies and decorations your child receives in their Trophy Room. Also, the better reader your child will become. There is also an Interactive Whiteboard which can be used to spell words and even write stories.
I hope this review was helpful to you. I know, for my family and I, it was really an answer to many prayers. It was easy for me to work with and my first 2 children used Hooked On Phonics and learned to read. Please feel free to leave a comment or question below, and thank you again for your time.
