About the Author

At Hooked on Phonics, operated by Smarterville Productions LLC, we believe that every child loves to learn, so we focus on nurturing that thirst for knowledge with products that are fun, effective, and easy to use. We respond to the natural curiosity of a child and support families and teachers as they help children improve reading, math, and study skills. We celebrate every success so learning becomes a positive cycle that kids will love to repeat again and again. We meet all children at their level, engage their imaginations, and help them climb to the next level step by step. Every achievement ends in a celebration of success, an elevation of confidence, and an increase in self-esteem. As children master reading and math skills, they also lay the foundation for a lifetime of learning. Our goal is to make a difference in the lives of children by making learning fun and easy. That is why we have brought together a dedicated team of parents, leading educators, interactive designers, writers, and artists. By collaboration, research, and testing, we continually develop innovative products and systems that teach children not only to learn but also to love learning.

It's very interactive, and gives parents ideas on how to help children learn the letters of the alphabet using fun crafts and activities.

We were doing homeschooling preschool and I ordered Hooked on Phonics at my sister's recommendation who has taught each of her 3 kids to read using this program.

She loves the flash cards and books, and today she actually asked to watch the DVD for an hour longer, even though I told her she could play if she wanted.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As a mom and former homeschooler, I highly recommend Hooked on Phonics to all parents, whether you are homeschooling or not. It's easy-to-use, fun for the kids and their parents; and, most important of all, it's effective.

It's effective because it's based on phonics. The Pre-K program teaches letter and sound recognition, as well as an introduction to blending. The instructions are so simple that anyone can do it.

I especially like how all the senses are utilized, making it effective for children with all learning styles.

The kit comes with a workbook that provides step-by-step instructions, a DVD, reading books, stickers for rewards, flash cards and access to additional online materials.

Some of the activities:

1. Sing the Alphabet song and songs for each letter. Some of these are really cute, some just ok.

2. Watch how a letter is formed and then trace the shape of the letter in the workbook.

3. Color the letter.

4. Say the name of the picture beginning with the letter.

5. Three hands-on activities to reinforce the letter such as making the letter P out of ten pieces of popcorn and then eating it up.

6. Review lessons in the workbook include matching rhyming words, matching sounds with images, flash card activities, and circling the letters. The flash cards are printed on quality paper and should hold up well for all of your children.

7. After your child has completed the lesson, he earns a star sticker for his workbook page.

The online activities include: More songs (some more interesting than others) that reinforce learning, worksheets (only one in which the child circles the correct picture), and a board-game-like record of your child's progress.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Just got this for my 3 1/2 year old and he is loving every bit of it.

He already knew the alphabet and can count to 20, but still has trouble with the phonics of certain letters. When he started opening books and "reading" based off what he's heard been read to him and the pictures, we knew it was time to get him reading - he wants to read! I ordered about a dozen "learn to read" books like Oliver (I Can Read Book 1) and I See, You Saw (My First I Can Read), but this package incorporates the "how-to" learn and makes it fun. Together with the stand-alone books, I think reading will be as fun as learning the alphabet was (lots of smiles...and lots of repeating with the smiles.)

The DVD includes bright-colored animation and easy-to-sing-along songs that allow to sing along - while making the phonetic sounds. One of the "extras" is the alphabet; saying it, making the sound of the letter, and then a word with the letter. The first time my child watched it, he was repeating all the sounds that were on the video.

The flashcards were also fun, but perhaps a bit easy. (We've used a lot of flashcards.) Same goes for the workbook, but we've gone through so many workbooks (he loves them) that it's somewhat expected. Other workbooks, such as Brain Quest Workbook: Pre-K provide more activities, but they aren't nearly as integrated with a "lesson" as this kit provides (flashcards, books, DVD.)

Overall, this feels like a very high quality reading/phonics kit for Pre-K.

I know this might not be typical, but I ordered this program for my daughter who had just turned 3. We were doing homeschooling preschool and I ordered Hooked on Phonics at my sister's recommendation who has taught each of her 3 kids to read using this program. The DVDs were so fun! We would put it on and dance around to the songs in our living room. In addition to my 3 year old loving it! My then 13 month old son seemed captivated. We continued to watch the DVDs at home and on our car trips. It was all the two of them wanted to watch! In no time, my son was pointing out letters everywhere. At his 15 month appointment the doctor asked if he was talking I told her not only was he saying words he knew his alphabet! She didn't believe it...so she started pointing out letters for him and he told her every one, except for "W" because it was too hard to say, so instead he made the sound for "W". I told her we had not done any teaching for him, he just watched the HOP DVDs with his sister. He is now 17 months and can point out Upper and Lowercase letters (out of order) and tell you the sound they make. I am amazed!

My daughter just started the Kindergarten pack (she just turned 3.5 so it took us just 4 months before she was ready for the Kindergarten) and she has already read her first book after learning her "at", "an" and "ap" words. She understands how to sound out the letters. I owe this all to Hooked on Phonics! Excellent program and for us we have had excellent results! I highly recommend buying the Pre-K through 2nd grade pack, but we have bought them separately. It is cheaper to get them together though. HINT: search online for coupon codes for Hooked on Phonics
