We have been using the Ultimate Phonics Reading Program with my 7 year old over the last few weeks. She is my most struggling reader right now. In hind sight, I think I should have went ahead and started it with my 9 year old as well, just to get better at phonics decoding skills. I plan to start that today.
Honestly, my 7 year old wasn’t a fan of the program at first. She found it slow and boring, however after some encouragement, she doesn’t mind as much. I’m seeing that her reading IS improving just after these few weeks of working on the program. If you are looking for something cartoonish and exciting, this is not that program. However, if you want something that is more serious and will actually help your child with phonics, this is what you want.
I am super thrilled that the purchase is a one time purchase. This is fantastic news for large(r) families that would like several students to use the program. The only improvement that I would like to see them make is an app for iPad or Android so that we could take the lessons with us. We can take our laptop with us to do lessons on the go, and since it’s a downloaded program, we do not have to have the internet in order to use it. That’s definitely a plus.
I will be continuing this program with my children and I’m thankful that I was able to learn more about such a wonderful phonics program.
