Personalized activities and games teaching young students to read

Overview

Ooka Island is a game-based website that teaches reading for students from Pre-K to Grade 2. Teachers, school leaders, district administrators and parents can purchase Ooka Island for an annual license per student.

APPROACH

Students start the 3D game by creating their personal avatars. The game is organized into a series of missions. In the beginning missions, activities include identifying letters, segmenting words and pronouncing words. By the end of the entire game, students should be able to successfully comprehend second grade level books. As students advance through the game, Ooka Island analyzes their progress and plots a specific path for the student to master the skills needed to proceed to the next level.

Teachers or parents can see students’ real time progress reports with info such as errors made and total books read. They can even use an optional function to play along the student as another character in the game. Teachers or parents also receive weekly progress reports and other resources such as instructor manuals, workbooks, flash cards and printed books.

As of August 2015, Ooka Island is aligned with Ontario’s K- Grade 2 reading expectations curriculum.

IMPLEMENTATION

As of August 2015, Ooka island is only available on browsers, but the iPad app is expected to be released before the end of the month.

PRICING

Teachers, school leaders, district administrators and parents can purchase Ooka Island for $10 per student per year.

WHO IS USING IT

As of August 2015, over 10,000 students in over 100 schools use Ooka Island.
