Homeschool Buyers Co-op

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.

My 4 year old loves this game. She will spend hours (if i let her) playing this game...which is funny because the graphics are not the best and she doesn't like to play video games.

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)

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!

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.

There are a lot of reading programs on the market, and it is hard to know what makes one particular program special. If you have a child who is struggling with hearing how sounds make words, then Ooka Island is ideal. My 4 year old daughter loves playing the games, reading the books and, particularly, earning the awards. It is a delight to watch her dance around the room yelling, "I'm a champion!" after completing a challenge. I highly recommend this program.

I love that we were able to do a free trial first. It only took me about 30 seconds to see that it was a good fit for my son, who is 5 and learning to read. He asks to play it often, and I've noticed his reading has improved quite a bit.

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.

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!

This program has really helped my 4 year old daughter out! We were having a hard time with sounding words out, but she has progressed fast after just a week of playing, maybe an hour a day! She finds it enjoyable enough that i usually have to convince her it is time to do something else. We tried a free trial from a very well known reading program, she liked it as well but it offered endless "free time" in their playroom, where as ooka island has "free play" but it is timed and then back to learning games! In all we both enjoy it, and i recomm...(more)
