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 five year old daughter loved Ooka Island. It was very engaging for her and fun. She earned rewards to have free/play time in a certain area of the game. I can see that the program was helping solidify the letters/blends and the sounds they make.

I wish it were a little less expensive. If she were my only child, I'd get the year subscription! But as the youngest of six, the money gets targeted for some of the older kids' required materials over a Kindergarten add-on. I will have to creatively teach her those sounds although it wi...(more)

My daughters have used Ooka Island for over a year now, and they both love it. The free play mode elicits a moment of excitement when earned, and they love the feedback that comes when they complete a new book. When they realized the subscription had expired, they dramatically lamented over the loss, so I promptly renewed!
S. Robinson, Co-op Member
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.
MM, 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 4 year old loves Ooka Island! He has already learned many of his phonics sounds and is eager to learn more. The bonus printable activities on their website are also fun for him. Ooka Island is teaching him much more and much faster than our traditional curriculum workbooks. I purchased the full version after the free trial ran out.
Anna G., Co-op Member
I have been using this with my four and six year olds, and it has been a huge hit! It is entertaining, which makes them want to keep playing, and they are definitely learning. We had previously purchased Explode the Code, and I think this is a much better product. Much more exciting and fun, but still educationally sound.
Kristen H, 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.
B. Stokes, Co-op Member
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!
Kris T., Co-op Member
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.
Calyn Z, Co-op Member
My parents gifted us with the money to purchase Ooka-island and we are so blessed because of their generosity. Double blessed because I was able to find the special price offered by Homeschool Buyers Co-op which made it even more affordable! My four year old LOVES this program and it is quite exciting for her to save elves and learn at the same time. It reaches into her imagination as well as teaching her the alphabet, phonics and reading skills. Thank you!
