We purchased a membership for four of our kids. They love to do ooka island. It has been a big help in the kids having some "on their own" learning time. As a mom with a large (9+) family, I found getting to the foundations of reading with each of the kids got more and more challenging. This has allowed us to get some work in and yet I still have time to oversee everyone. Our now 5 year old made a lot of progress in just the first week. I think we will continue to use it for the other younger kids coming up. Thank you for offering the discounte...(more)

Purchased an Ooka Island subscription for my 4 and 6 yr old daughters after trying the free trial. They love to play this game, and are highly motivated by earning "ooka mist" to spend on their avatar.

I like that the time spent on Ooka Island by the student is structured--activities are chosen by the computer with limited free time at the end. I also like that it is circular review and building on what they did before.

Ooka Island is easy to download and use. I have asked several questions on their instant chat feature of the website ...(more)

We've been using Ooka Island for a few months now and my kids LOVE it. Two of my children are teens with developmental delays and my third is a kindergartener and this program suits the needs of all 3. When I pulled my 13 year old from school she was able to "read" (ie. piece sounds together) but her comprehension was appalling. This program works on comprehension AND the ability to read - I've noticed great strides in both areas with all 3 kids. I've already mentioned it to several friends whose kids are beginning or struggling readers.

I purchased this for my 8 year old son that has a reading disability. He loves it! I use it as a supplement to other curriculum. It is great because it gives him independence that he doesn't get with a lot of other reading activities. I like that it starts and continues at the level where he is capable and really accomodates his needs.

My son loves this and after a month he's already reading simple sentences. He started out only wanting to do free play but now he gets excited to start new books.

My three children have enjoyed using Ooka-Idland. One of my favorite things about this program is that they have to complete a certain amount of "work" before they can play around in the non-learning areas.

WE have loved this program. My 5 year old twins ask to play it all the time. It is probably the best program I have found for introducing so many different steps to learning to read. It covers letter sounds, letter identification, sight words, consonant blends and vowel blends, reading comprehension, and more. I was a little nervous about the price but it was well worth it and I would definitely do it again.

We love Ooka Island as part of our homeschool curriculum! We are using it for our pre-k son who just turned 5. He would sit and "play" Ooka Island for hours if I let him. My older daughter, age 7, is jealous that he gets to play the game and she does not. My younger daughter, age 2, loves to watch him play and mimics the sounds (which is a super big side-bonus because she is significantly speech delayed due to cleft lip/palate). Although my son is still in a pre-reading category, he is definitely able to answer questions about sounds and le...(more)

My granddaughter absolutely loves Ooka Island! I love that there are lessons that go along with the reading levels!!

We purchased Ooka-Island through a GroupBuy. My 5 yr old loves it! At first she was frustrated because she couldn't play in the playground when she wanted but once she got used to the rotation she was fine with that. I like the idea that they have to finish their lessons before being able to have free play but I wish the time she spends in the store would not count as free play. (Maybe it doesn't have to but we haven't figured it out yet.) I am very happy with Ooka-Island!
