Magic Finger Mockup

Explicit instruction and assessments aligned with structured literacy, informed by the Science of Reading


Our research-backed approach to remote literacy instruction was incubated on a research project at the Nokia Research Lab with Sesame Workshop (the creators of Sesame Street). Our web-based app was designed and developed by leaders in child education to create a synchronous learning experience with proven learning impact. 


"We loved our experience with Hoot Reading. Teachers are super kind, and attentive and made learning fun and educational at the same time. Definitely highly recommended, with flexible hours to accommodate you and your little one."

What does the Hoot Camp include?

Summer Hoot Camps include:

  • 1:1 literacy instruction over the Hoot Reading App with qualified teachers.
  • Assessments are completed at the beginning and end of each summer camp to track progress and tailor lessons to each individual student.
  • Access to Hoot's library of over 2,000 decodable and complex multi-genre texts, available to students during and outside lessons.
  • Hoot's Live Help Desk, available any time lessons are taking place.

Why 25-minute lessons?

Our studies show that students make reading gains in the 25-minute format in as little as 15 lessons. For some students, the 25-minute format is ideal as it offers short bursts of learning and does not add the expectation or pressure of sitting still for long durations.

Will there be homework from Hoot Reading?

While there may not be practice 'assignments' to complete between lessons, practice and reading together are encouraged! Each lesson is paced to be high-impact for 25-minute intervals. On average, children who complete 12+ lessons advance oral fluency by 152%.

How do you log in to the app and join a lesson?

Students will go to and enter the credentials provided to the student. 

What device can I use to do my lessons?

Students require a laptop, computer, or tablet and a stable internet connection to access the Hoot Reading app. The device must have a camera, a microphone, and a speaker, and headphones are recommended to help minimize distractions during the lesson.

How are teachers selected?

All teachers in Hoot’s Teacher Network are selected by our standard qualifications and undergo a selection process, including a Q&A session with teacher specialists, a mock lesson on the Hoot app, and a background and abuse registry check. Hoot’s Teacher Network qualifications include:

  • B.Ed or higher
  • K – 6 classroom teaching experience
  • Strong communication skills
  • Passion for reading and working with young children
