Hooked On Phonics

Who is HOP for?

It’s certainly not only for homeschoolers!

If you want to teach your child to read before they start school, this is a great way to do it. The responsibility shouldn’t be totally left to their kindergarten teacher, if only because it’s such a joy to be involved in your child’s reading development.

Pre-K children from the age of 3 can get started with these Hooked On Phonics products (including the app), and there are resources for children up to a 2nd-grade level.

So whether you are a homeschooler, simply a mom or dad, a grandparent, or anyone else wanting to teach a child to read, you can use this app!

Hooked On Phonics App

Signing up for a 1 month trial of the HOP App for only $1 is the best and easiest way to find out if it will click with your children.

Here’s what you need to know about the 30 Day Trial:

  • Get access to the Learn To Read App
  • Access to 100+ e-books
  • You will be posted 2 or 3 books to complement the app (lower 48 states only)
  • Subscription renews at $12.99 + $2.99 shipping per month
  • Or simply continue app membership without books for $6.99 per month
  • Cancel at any time and pay no more than the initial $1

There’s really no risk to try this out. Even if you are using other reading apps like Reading Eggs we recommend giving HOP a go to find out if it suits your needs better.

What is the Learn To Read app?

You can learn a lot about the app and accompanying materials in the video above.

The app teaches the alphabet and each letter’s corresponding sounds through engaging videos, characters, games, and activities.

In our experience, kids love these types of interactive learning apps, especially once they know what they are doing.

Each lesson or session generally takes about 20 minutes to complete, so it shouldn’t blow out your child’s screen time for the day.

Hooked On Phonics Pre K

Most people will start their kids on the Hooked On Phonics program between the ages of 3 and 4. Like us, you may just use it as an accompaniment to other methods.

We primarily used the book Teach Your Child To Read In 100 Easy Lessons to teach our kids to read and then used reading apps as a way to reinforce what they’d learned.

The upside to using HOP is that you can use the books and workbooks in tandem with the app – something that many other reading apps do not offer.

Hooked On Phonics Complete Set

You can purchase the Hooked On Phonics complete set and make huge savings.

The complete kit comes with lifetime access to the app, so you are not paying the monthly subscription fee.

The complete Learn to Read bundle contains all 8 levels of the HOP program, from Pre-K to 2nd Grade:

  • Level 1 – Early Emergent Readers
  • Level 2 – Early Emergent Readers
  • Level 3 – Emergent Readers
  • Level 4 – Emergent Readers
  • Level 5 – Transitional Readers
  • Level 6 – Transitional Readers
  • Level 7 – Early Fluent Readers
  • Level 8 – Early Fluent Readers

See everything you get with the complete kit here. It includes 36 original storybooks, 8 DVDs, online access to myHOP, and so much more.

Purchasing the complete kit does involve a much higher upfront cost, but it does work out to be cheaper. This is especially the case if you have other children who will go through the program as well.

Other children can use the app and read books, you may just need to purchase additional workbooks as you require them.

Even if the HOP complete set interests you, it may still be better to try it out with the $1 trial first. You can cancel the subscription within the first month and then purchase the bundle if you want to go through the whole training.

Most Popular Products

If you are still unsure what to go for, you can see the most popular Hooked On Phonics products. This gives us a good idea as to what people are buying and where to start!

They include:

  • 1 month HOP trial
  • The Essential Learn To Read Bundle (as explained above)
  • The Complete Learn To Read Kit (the original storybooks)

As expected, the trial is the most popular product. You get everything pictured above, so you really can’t go wrong giving it a go for this great price!

Hooked On Phonics Coupon

We are not aware of any Hooked On Phonics coupons, codes, or deals at this time. However, as we approach Black Friday and other big sale days we’ll be updating with any that are announced.

The initial $1 trial cannot get any cheaper though, can it?

And the ongoing monthly subscription price is also very affordable for what you are getting. Remember that you can go with the HOP app only price of $6.99 per month, so that helps to make it more affordable as well.
