Hooked On Phonics Review

Hooked on Phonics

 I want to talk about “Hooked on Phonics” today, as a tool to use in your homeschooling efforts.

My parents used this program, 40 some years ago with my brother who it turns out had dyslexia (they did not know that at the time).

He was having a horrible time in school, just couldn’t seem to learn to read or remember what he had just read.  So, mom got the “Hooked on Phonics” program on reel to reel… I told you this stuff has been around for a long time!

Anyway, to make a long story short, “Hooked on Phonics” really helped my brother a lot.  It was still many years later before someone at his school figured out his true problem, dyslexia!  (but that is another whole story and partly why I believe so much in homeschooling, for another day though.)

“Hooked on Phonics”, works on the basic principals of teaching your child the sounds of letters and how to sound out words.  I learned this way in school when I was a child and never figured out why it is no longer used in schools, oh yeah, it is old school so it can’t work!

“Hooked on Phonics” has gone through some big changes since the 1970’s when my parents got the program, and it is all for the better. The programs are broken down into grade levels and formatted to use with workbooks that give your child a visual look at the word also, giving the visual and auditor learners each something they can use.

I like the programs, I like the concepts, I think the some of the “old school” ways do work, no matter what our “modern” schools tell us! If you would like to try “Hooked on Phonics”, they have a 30 Day Risk-Free Trial Only $14.95 – Learn More at HookedOnPhonics.com. It is a good way to try the program and see if it can’t help your child. For $14.95 you really can’t lose.

Tell me your story if you have tried “Hooked on Phonics” for your child.
