Engage Your Child with a 3D Interactive Reading Curriculum

The Ooka Island Adventure takes young ones on an online adventure that teaches them the foundations of reading without their realizing it. What's more, the adventure is tailored to each student as the adaptive learning system automatically adjusts the learning path of each student. Along the way, the program introduces and builds on the five key areas of reading including phonemic awareness, phonetics, vocabulary, fluency, and reading comprehension.

Set in a tropical virtual world, Ooka Island goes beyond online reading activities by sending each child on a heroic quest to teach others how to read. Your child will join Auntie Kay and a recurring cast of characters in an ongoing storyline with activities, game-based incentives, 85 eBooks divided into 6 series, and new surprises around each corner to help keep your child engaged and motivated for the duration of the approximate 80-hour curriculum.

The Ooka Island Adventure's key innovative feature is its READirect™ technology, a learning-based algorithm that adapts to each child's pace and skill level to help ensure mastery in every area of reading. With each click of the program, your child receives a customized curriculum tailored to his or her needs.

The program is also aligned with the Common Core Standards to guide your child on the path to becoming a fluent reader. Additional features include:

  • Safe and fun environment: The Ooka Island Adventure provides a safe and fun place for your beginning reader. Once your child has completed the program, they are not only the hero of Ooka Island, but they have been provided with the skills to be able to read at a 2nd grade level.
  • OOKACOMPASS™: An optional reading assessment for children who already have a foundation in reading and could benefit from a fast track.
  • OOKA Lighthouse™: As children learn to read on Ooka Island, their progress is captured in real-time and organized into detailed reports for parents to view securely online.
  • CHEEReader™: To encourage and support young learners, Ooka Island has its own CHEEReader messaging system whereby you (or even another relative) can greet the child when they log in with messages like "Great job!" and "Hooray for you!"

With Signature Co-op GroupBuy Savings!

The Ooka Island Adventure is available as an annual license for either an Individual Student or as a Family (up to four students). By purchasing through the Co-op, members can save up to 68%!

My son enjoys playing Ooka Island. Some activities he likes more than others (of course). My favorite for him is the cave of sounds. He seems to really pick up the various sounds there. Wouldn't you know this is his least favorite activity though. We did free trials on both Reading Eggs and Ooka Island simultaneously. I let my son choose which one he wanted to go on with and he chose Ooka Island. I would for sure tell others about it. This is a great learning tool!

Ooka-Island is a fun first learning video game for a young reader. If your child has completed other reading programs or games, and is not struggling, it can become repetitive and boring quickly. I may use this program in the future as the younger children were very interested in the content.
Paula F., Co-op Member
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.
Christina, Co-op Member
My 4.5 yr old son is obsessed with ooka island. He was already reading on a 1st grade level but the program has helped solidify his foundation. He considers the program a special treat and loves being a "hero". Their phonics system is very comprehensive and fun. It is a reward you can feel good about giving at the end of a challenging homeschool day.

My 6-year old reluctant reader enjoys this program. I like that there are online workbook materials that we can print and use off-line too. The program took a long time to install, will not run on our 7-year old computer, and has very slow choppy graphics on our 1-year old computer. Probably a new high-end computer would work better. My daughter doesn't seem to mind the slow graphics though.
Laurie, Co-op Member
I purchased Ooka Island for my 7 year old son who is not reading yet and really has little interest in the process for reading (he simply wants to be able to read). I have two older sons who are fluent readers and are active on the computer. After reviewing this program, I felt it would fill two things - one, my son could be on the computer without the need for someone to read for him so he would feel like he gets computer time too, and second it would take him through the process of learning to read with more fun that just looking at letters...(more)

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.
Mallory C., Co-op Member
I purchased Ooka-Island for my 7-year old son. He is an emergent reader and I was hoping this would be a fun way for him to get some extra practice and solidify his skills during the times I'm busy with his older brothers. At first he LOVED it. After about 3 weeks the newness has worn off, which is to be expected, but I also felt that we might not be getting the most out of the program. So I finally checked out the parent online supplement (Ooka Island Lighthouse). I was surprised at how much relevant information was there. I could see wh...(more)

My kids are really enjoying Ooka-Island. I did the trial subscription while on vacation and the kids played every day and even watched each other play. Once home bought it and the kids love it. I had purchased Click N Kids but by son got bored and didn't like it. This has nice music and fun games to play while learning how to read. Its a win-win. Plus the discount through the Co-op makes it worth it. Not sure if I would have paid full price but the discount makes it worth it. We try and do every day.
Lauren I., Co-op Member
I purchased Ooka Island after using the trial and because my daughter requested it. My daughter is an older struggling reader who was tired of other programs seeming what she called "babyish". When we first found Ooka Island my daughter was thrilled. She finds it fun to use but yet it is still very educational. I was very happy to see it here on the Homeschool Buyers Co-op. We are very pleased with this product and will continue to use it.
