Hooked On Phonics Review and Giveaway-CLOSED


No matter how many things I have on my plate, such as blogging and working.  My main priority in life is to teach my daughter anything and everything I possibly can. I am always looking for quality educational materials to introduce to my little one. Whether it is reading, writing, computer programs, science or math, I always have this saying printed in my mind "No child is to young to learn anything". As much as I love reading to her every day, I still wanted some kind of reading program to guide me to teach her effectively. So, my first primary issue was to find a reading method to teach my daughter how to read appropriately and accurately.  

I received Hooked on Phonics Learn-to-Read Pre-K level 1 and 2 for review.  The Pre-K levels are designed to help build phonemic awareness and teach beginning reading skills. This program is geared towards Pre-schoolers (ages 3 to 4 year olds). I was ready to start this program on my daughter and fully read all the directions that came along with the package. Hooked on Phonics helps children build phonemic awareness, learn letter recognition, and understand the association of letters with their letter sounds. This makes it easier for your little one to understand and slowly learn how to read effectively and appropriately. 
The learn to read package includes:
6 original storybooks written to promote the skills your child learns in the program, including 2 books by the award-winning children’s book author and illustrator, David McPhail
2 workbooks that will guide you and your child through all of the lessons and many fun activities
2 DVDs filled with music videos and fun introductions to each lesson, where letters come to life
Quick Start Guide
2 sets of stickers to proudly display in the workbooks and celebrate reading success
4 sets of letter and picture flash cards designed to reinforce letter names and letter sounds 
I am currently working with Sophia on the Pre-K level 1 work book and so far so good. She enjoys seeing the alphabet  letters in the work book and automatically started to sing the ABC song.  I then followed the directions to watch the DVD and that is when she had so much fun. She loves the songs and the characters. The DVD is very engaging and interactive, which was very handy and easy for her to look at. She automatically knew that the words sound alike.  She kept on repeating "Mouse and House", "Cat and Hat" and so on.  Sophia loves the books, because she notices that some of the words were rhyming as well. She really had a blast with those books.  Each lesson only takes 20 minutes which is really good so you do not overdo it.  It really is amusing to see how affective this program can be if you have time and patience to work with your child. Working with my little one made me really happy because I can tell she enjoys it and she is learning. 
Here is a little bit more on how Hooked on Phonics works: "We all want our children to be happy, successful, well-rounded kids. With that goal in mind, our mission at Hooked on Phonics® is to create educationally sound tools that are fun for kids and easy for parents to measurably improve their children’s learning and help them reach their full potential. Our products are expressly designed to build children’s confidence and ensure success".
  • based on current research about how children learn best
  • developed with the help of leading educators
  • tested with kids
  • interactive and fun
  • presented in colorful, vibrant, visually appealing ways
"Over two million families and thousands of schools have turned to Hooked on Phonics® products because of our unique, proven learn-practice-play approach. We provide children with bite-sized pieces of new information in every lesson so they are able to master each new concept and achieve success every night".
The easy-to-follow learn-practice-play approach works like this:
Learn new skills or concepts.
Practice the concept until it is mastered.
Play fun games or read great books to apply and reinforce new knowledge.
Children learn at their own pace, mastering each new skill before they move on to the next. Practicing and reinforcing new skills is designed to be fun, and every experience ends with a celebration.

Duh forgot to do the mandatory entry!

I would choose Pre-K because my son is 2 years old and LOVES for me to read to him. He pretends to read all the time, it's really cute. You can see him "reading" The Cat in the Hat here - http://hisbooboos.blogspot.com/2010/06/tyler-reading-cat-in-hat.html
