What sets Hooked on Phonics apart from other reading apps is the option to include complementary Practice Packs that help a child develop concepts of print, as well as appealing to even more types of learners with off-the-page, hands-on ideas for deeper learning at home. Built using feedback from education experts and our customers, the Practice Pack program includes 5 Pre-reader, and 12 Learn to Read packs that include workbooks, stickers, storybooks, and in the first Pre-reader pack, flashcards that are sent to the home, monthly. Users can customize how often they receive these shipments through their account dashboard to tailor the pacing to each family’s needs. Created in conjunction with the App, the Practice Packs allow children to engage in different modalities of learning, review the skills they’ve gained in the App, and practice hands-on skills—like writing and tracing—that can’t be mastered in a digital setting. The result is an immersive program of learning experiences that keeps kids highly engaged in learning to read.

Can’t hold my 5 year olds attention
I figured I would try it since it was only $1 for the first month and she’s going to be doing complete remote learning her kindergarten year, which I’m very nervous about. But I had doubts because my daughter is very much into her phone and playing Roblox and other stuff on it, so learning games never hold her interest. And I was right when it came to this one. Unless I forced her to sit and do it she has no interest whatsoever. And I don’t want her to end up hating the learning process. I’m not sure how I’m going to do it this year and make sure she learns everything she needs to. I’m terrified. But I think for kids who don’t already spend hours a day behind a phone or tablet (yeah I’m a bad parent I know) I do think your kid would benefit!!!

First, you're a great parent! You are showing great initiative in exploring what does work for your daughter, so we commend you! We wonder if you might be interested in checking out our more traditional boxed kits, where you'll work more with robust workbooks and less with digital media? Here's a link if you think this might be a fit: https://shop.hookedonphonics.com/shop
We have a reader!!
We have so enjoyed watching our now almost-5 year old son become a reader during quarantine using only this App and the related practice packs mailed to us. He went from reading words like ‘cat’ and ‘mat’ in March to reading full stories from our shelf, and he is loving the freedom it gives him to explore books in a new way. We have used the program inconsistently over the last 5 months depending on our family’s bandwidth, but it has been easy to move at our own pace and review areas where my son was not quite confident by revisiting sections of the App. He loves the songs (and so does his little bro), and they like the silly animals and their antics, particularly the rhino on the bulldozer and the strange but funny meerkat. There was a period where we saw problems with the App loading, and we reached out to customer service and they told us the developer team was working on it. This most recent update fixed any issues we were having and all seems to be in order. We can’t wait to finish the program as we start homeschooling more officially in September! We’re on the beginning of first grade now, so it won’t be long!

Worth it!! Reading in 3 weeks.
My five year old son had been in “Phonics” after school class two times a week for a few months for just 30 mins each session. I found that he was making very little progress and the activities he was doing did not hold his attention. Then after his school shut down due to COVID in April, I got him all sorts of learning books in order to prepare him for Kindergarten. He wasn’t too much interested in those. I decided to download the Hooked on Phonics app since it was just $1 for the first month. Let me tell you, I was a bit skeptical at first about the claims they were making that my son would be reading in a month. But to my amazement within three weeks he was reading. Now he’s reading everything and is definitely ready for Kindergarten and I couldn’t be happier. I must admit that some of the reviews almost made me not give the app a try, but I’m glad I did. Thank you Hooked on Phonics.
