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%!

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 (4) enjoys Ooka Island very much and asks to play it every day. He loves to learn but he loves learning by himself. He does not like to be taught. But playing games and learning new things that way is right up his alley.

Here is what I as a parent like: there are no timed tests with clock ticking. Those are really bad for him as his confidence sinks and often he doesn't even want to try. I love the graphics and the voices are perfect. The songs are catchy but not too much. I also like that the praise is not over-done. Some online ga...(more)

I can't even begin to tell you how much my kids LOVE this program. I have 2 struggling readers and one (the youngest) who seemingly teaches herself how to read. It is a fight to get my 2 older daughters to read. As a mom it makes me so sad that they hate to read. And my youngest daughter (in kindergarten), who reads very well, is watching all the negativity around reading from her older sisters.

Ooka Island has changed all of that! Each child has her own account, so they can progress at their own rate. And they are having so much fun playi...(more)

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'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.
Michelle E., Co-op Member
We have really enjoyed this product. We've had a couple glitches, but the Customer Service took care of them right away. Even over Easter Weekend! So I was impressed. My daughter really loves using this program, and I'm so glad we got it. I only ordered the "free trial" for my son, since I knew it would be too easy for him. And he still enjoyed playing it for a week or so! My daughter (8, dyslexic) uses it almost daily.

This program is wonderful. My daughter LOVES it and continues to play well after her set time minimum everyday. My older daughter wishes she had an account as she enjoys watching my younger daughter play. A great educational program for kids!

We had run up against a brick wall after using Reading Eggs for a few months. Apparently, my son had managed to guess too many correct answers and was "in over his head." His reading progress was at a standstill. Enter Ooka Island! While it has fewer distinct activities than Reading Eggs, it seems to be designed a little better in terms of preventing kids from advancing via good guesses. In addition, the program "reads" a book with the child at each level, prompting the child in context-based expectant reading and requiring the student to corre...(more)

We just LOVE Ooka Island! My daughter is a visual learner and learned all of her letters and sounds through watching Leap Frog Letter Factory, but was having a hard time with blending the sounds together. She is only just 4 so we are in no rush, but she has fun learning, so I wanted to keep it going somehow. I tried other things but everything just seemed boring to both of us.

But she just Loves Ooka Island. It rotates through games to keep from getting boring, but is progressively building bit by bit on skills. The games teach so much mo...(more)

We recently renewed our subscription to Ooka-Island, so this is the second year we've been using it. It has been very helpful for my 7 yo autistic granddaughter. Seeing her continue to progress & the joy she experiences is worth much more than the cost of the subscription. Thank you for giving her that!
