After getting to try out our very own copy of Hooked On Phonics Learn to Read Preschool edition, I am not surprised in the least bit that Hooked on Phonics is a multi-award winning program. Little Miss A was very excited to be able to sit down and start learning her letters. Although she knows “O” and a few others I was struggling trying to teach her others and found that Hooked on Phonics made it easier for both of us.
The Learn to Read sets are very extensive and come with a variety of materials. In our Pre-K package we received a workbook, reward stickers, flash cards, several reading books, and a fun DVD, not to mention the online resources. I think with all of their materials they’ve definitely covered the bases of learning.
I love that the workbook gives parents the techniques to teach their children, making it easy and fun to sit down and contribute to the child’s development. Hooked on Phonics: Learn to Read also provides opportunities for learning outside the program. For example using foods and finger paints to practice the letters we’re currently working on and of course Little Miss A loved getting her star for completing the assignment.
Our flash cards became a daily game whether Miss A was learning to associate the name of the letter with the picture of the letter, or putting the pictures on the flash cards with other pictures that they rhymed with, or even an occasional game of match, the options are endless.
The books that came in our Pre-K set were a great compliment to what lessons Miss A was already learning. I loved the variety of stories and illustrations between the three. I have to say they were very age appropriate and after reading a few times Miss A was telling me parts of the stories she’d memorized.
One of my favorite things about Hooked on Phonics Pre-K set DVD is that HOP has come up with a great new version of the familiar “A,B,C” song that helps to sound out each letter. So, if you’re used to the LMNOP garble then this will certainly come in handy.
Check out the video for yourself:
Overall, I think Hooked on Phonics: Learn To Read program is an amazing program to help prepare children for entering the classroom. Little Miss A has already improved upon which letters she knows and is now learning how to blend or put sounds letters together to make words. One of her favorite “games” that has transpired since Hooked On Phonics is to rhyme, everything and anything she can think of. Definitely something a parent will appreciate.
