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 a child's natural curiosity 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.

It s our goal to make a difference in children's lives by making learning fun and easy. That's why we've 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.

I ordered 'Learn to Read - First Grade' because my little girl is currently attending first grade and I felt that she could be moving at a faster pace.

CONTENTS

'Learn to Read - First Grade, Levels 1 and 2' contains 2 modules of an eight-level reading program. The 'Pre-K' and 'Kindergarten' kits precede this one and 'Second Grade' is the last one, following 'First Grade'.

This bundle includes:

- First Grade Level 1
- First Grade Level 2
- Stellaluna - a Reading Rainbow bonus DVD containing one Reading Rainbow episode dealing with bats, sleeping and dreaming.

Each Level kit includes:

- A quick start guide
- A workbook
- A DVD featuring phonics practice for each lesson and selected workbook stories
- Reward stickers
- 4 Storybooks with one story each

Each of the 2 levels is made up of 15 lessons divided into 3 units.

Additional material is available on the Web.

THE LEARNING PROCESS

Each lesson follows the same approach: learn, practice, read and celebrate.

After the child watches and then interacts with the DVD portion where the new letter-sound associations are first illustrated and then child is asked to pronounce the words displayed on the screen, the workbook provides additional practice, including a page of cumulative practice where about half of the words have phonics learned in prior lessons. Finally, the child reads a story from the workbook or from the one of the colorful and fully illustrated story books.

Each workbook page includes special notes to the teacher/parent, guiding them all throughout the process.

My oldest son just turned 7. We started using this program maybe mid-year last school year. We are a home school family and he is definitely willing to sit and eager to learn. I tried a few other phonics/reading programs. He had his letter names/sounds down great. He could read simple 3 letter words and could pick out letter sounds if you said the word verbally to him. I was at a loss of what to do next. I researched a lot of different things and just wasn't sure. I felt that this HOF program was a decent price and that we'd give it a shot. It really has worked well for him. We did the first book and part of the second until summer vacation. We worked very little, if at all over the summer but he started picking up SO many words. Everywhere he looked he could read. We are a few lessons away from finishing and I am definitely going to order the second grade set. And possibly the pre-K set for my almost 5 year old. I have been really happy with the program and my son seems to enjoy it. My only con I think would be....some of the pronunciations seem to be off to me. I don't know if it's a regional thing, we are in the Midwest so I don't think we have an "accent" per se. But, my son would say it right and then get confused when the voice would say it again. I just told him he was doing it right and I wasn't sure why she was saying it that way. It was mostly in the first set a few times. Also, I don't agree with all the "helper" words. In my opinion, if a word CAN be sounded out, you should sound it out. I get that some words are really truly site words but not all the ones listed are that.
I am not disappointed in this program at all. I'm sure other programs are good too but this one really worked well for us!!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Wondering if this is the right product for your child?

On the first page of the workbook, Hooked on Phonics provides a list of words your child should know before beginning the First Grade program. "If she can (read these) easily, she's ready to begin." Here are the words: "cat, ran bag, had, sip, win, mix, hill, got, top job, dog, hug, fun, tub, cup, red, net, leg, hats, bells, back, lick, rock." Presumably, if your child can't read those words fluently, you'd be better off starting with the Kindergarten program. Conversely, if they seem very easy for your child, you might want to look at the second grade program (I have a review of that one on Amazon, too, that lists the expectations for new users).

Now, onto the regularly scheduled review...

There's an old Jack Benny joke in which he's asked "how's your wife?" and he responds "compared to who?"

I'm reminded of that quip when I consider the value of these Hooked on Phonics packages. At the time of this writing, the entire first grade package, which includes storybooks, teaching tools, DVDs, stickers and other motivational tools costs about $55. Where I live, that would pay for one half hour session of individual tutoring (granted, you'd have five bucks left over for a latte, too).

Given the amount of material you get here, these Learn to Read programs are well worth it. The materials are of excellent quality - Hooked on Phonics is the leading name in this field. I used their program with my older son in Kindergarten and First Grade and he benefited greatly. His little brother is about to get the same treatment.

Of course, unlike a tutor, using the Hooked on Phonics program does require time and work from you.
