Does the app have the same content as the Hooked on Phonics boxed kit?
October 5, 2016Hooked on Phonics
The Hooked on Phonics App uses the same proven teaching methods as the Hooked on Phonics boxed kits (workbooks, storybook and DVDs). The content is similar in nature and shares some songs and storybooks. The interactive games and many e-books, as well as the skill and progress tracking, however, are unique to the App experience.
Our App is appropriate for children who are just starting to learn their letters and letter sounds (Pre-reader) through early Second-grade readers. Our physical Learn to Read products are geared toward children from Pre-reader through the end of 2nd-grade reading levels. In addition, the app covers more sight words and has a library of 36 leveled e-books that are only available within the app. These e-books were written to correspond to the sounds and words being taught in each of the lessons, so the e-books are 100% decodable to children who have completed the lessons. Thus, the eBook library gives children, even more, practice reading and more opportunities for success, which helps to boost their self-confidence and pride as readers.
