I have used Ooka Island with my two girls who are 6 and 4 now. I am currently on my third annual subscription. My girls couldn't get enough of it! They loved the captivating graphics and themes. Their favourite learning game is Alphabeth Mountain. The least liked was The Cave of Sounds. Overall, a great programme.

We like Ooka-Island. I originally intended to use it with both by 5yo/K son and my 8yo/3rd son, but the 8yo finds it too slow. Its well-paced for the 5yo, and I like that they tell me that he has mastered certain sounds. We're not schooling 100% this summer, but more hit and miss. He does ask to do it, and it holds his attention when he uses it.

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.

I bought this mostly for our 3 year old, though his older brother likes playing it also. We use it with a touch screen computer and our 3 year old loves the games and reading time. He's starting to point out letters and sounds. We are very happy with the engagement and progress so far.

This program has been PERFECT for my kindergarten daughter. She is learning but doesn't realize it. She LOVES playing Ooka-Island and goes over her minimum time limit everyday (part of her schooling is to spend 20 minutes per day on this program). My older daughter wishes she could play as well because "it is so much fun" she says. After searching through many options I know I made the right choice with this program. Thank you!

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.

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.

My 5 year old son Loves Ooka-Island. He asks to do it everyday. The sound cave has really taught him to listen for sounds and he loves the Free Play.

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)

Ooka Island has worked out surprisingly well for us. I signed up for the free trial, so our 6 year old son could try it out first before we bought it. Even though he liked it, I wasn't convinced that he wouldn't get tired of it, since he was a reluctant reader (i.e., he already knew all the abc's and the sounds they make, but he did not enjoy reading). I bought it anyway, and boy have I been (pleasantly) surprised. My son loves playing on Ooka Island and gets excited when he earns free play; I love the report features, which allows me to s...(more)
