The Ooka Island Adventure
An Adaptive Reading Curriculum
For Grades PreK-2

Another BEST DEAL ON THE PLANET!

The Homeschool Buyers Co-op is pleased to announce a BEST DEAL ON THE PLANET for The Ooka Island Adventure, an adaptive learn-to-read curriculum for grades PreK-2.

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%!

Our daughter's loved Ooka Island! It is fun, colorful and engaging. There is great diversity in the games which keeps it interesting for young learners. I highly recommend doing the trial offer first and seeing if it would be a good fit for your child's interest. Greatly appreciate that they offer a free trial....

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)

We tried Ooka during for the trial period - We are homeschooling 3 kids. My oldest (8) speeds through it, but finds it highly enjoyable. My second has learning difficulties (6) and I noticed an immediate difference with her comprehension and retention. PLUS, she was able to use the computer appropriately (without too much difficulty vs. some other systems that were just too hard.) My last child (3) watched during the trial play and walked around the house immediately making sounds and pointing out letters. We decided to purchase the years produ...(more)

We are using Ookaisland Island for kids ranging in age from 5-7. For the most part, the kids enjoy it, although they do find certain modules less interesting. All of the kids go through the same program, regardless of their current level of literacy. More confident readers can take a quiz and possibly advance to higher level books, although they do not skip ahead in the learning modules. My younger kid is just learning letters / sounds, and this program is very helpful. My older daughter reads with effort and this program helps build her conf...(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.

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.

I originally planned on purchasing this for my first grade son but he lost interest quickly. However, my 3.5 yr old daughter LOVES it! She is learning so much its amazing. I'm excited to see what she learns in the year we have it.

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 daughter is five, and while she showed an interest in reading, she just seemed to have trouble "getting it". We discovered she is very right brained and learns best with games and pictures (a visual/kinesthetic learner). Enter Ooka Island Adventure, my daughter loves it! She asks to play it every day and plays it for 30-60 minutes at a time. I see an improvement in her reading ability and her recognition of whole words. I like the Ooka Island Lighthouse, made especially for mom and dad. This tool is used to check how much or how little prog...(more)

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)
