How often should children use Ooka Island?

As with learning any new skill, from mastering the piano to snowboarding, consistent practice is key to mastery. Newly learned reading skills can easily be lost if practice sessions are too widely spaced. Our formula for parents is simple – send your child to the Island for 30 minutes, 3 times a week for one year and they will be on their way toward becoming a confident reader.

Can Ooka Island be played more than the recommended 30 minutes 3 times a week?

Our Reading Specialists love getting this question and the answer is that it is great to use the program more than our recommended formula. It is all about finding a routine that works for your family.
