I have Hooked on Phonics for my 6-year-old daughter who is in kindergarten. I am also an elementary teacher. This is such fun and interactive way for kids to learn to read basic sight words and sound out simple words. After doing one lesson a day for several weeks, I saw such a big improvement in my daughter’s independent reading ability. She is also so proud of herself. Thanks Hooked On Phonics!
We have the full program. It’s well worth it. My daughter was having trouble catching on in reading this fall. Her teachers were concerned. When I tried teaching her at home with traditional book programs, she wouldn’t focus for long. This program has completely changed that, and she LOVES to come home after school and “do her phonics”. I’ve seen rapid improvement and increased confidence. The organization, animation, and presentation make for a pleasing and successful program. THANK YOU!
