Each week, we’re featuring reviews of moms part of The Old Schoolhouse magazine’s review crew who are using the Reading Kingdom with their children. The crew was offered a free year subscription of the Reading Kingdom program to help us spread the word about the program. Click the their names to visit their blogs, and be sure to follow our Reading Kingdom Twitter list featuring some of our homeschooling parents.
“Biggest, 9 and reading on level passed the skills assessment with ease and was placed into Level 1. She immediately began type to out words such as girl, girls, some and more. She was given these words in a few different ways and that made the program enjoyable for her. She loves it!! She is now on to typing complete sentences which is wonderful for spelling practice! Being dyslexic I believe that this program will benefit her so much!” McMama
“In our reading away from the program I have noticed an improvement. Hunter seems to be “seeing” the little words that help you know HOW to pronounce the word that follows…. he is also “seeing” the combinations that make sounding out words a much easier process. I also notice that the monotone voice that he has been reading with is beginning to disappear. He is noticing punctuation and actually pausing at periods and commas before beginning the next thought. Yet another milestone to happen during this first level, was the beginning of unprompted writing. Prior to starting Reading Kingdom, Hunter would have rather chewed off his own arm, than write anything down on a piece of paper. Now he is passing me notes in church, and is asking to write letters to family members.” …
…When I asked Hunter what things he liked about Reading Kingdom, he said, “I like how it just helps drive the words into your head. If I don’t know how to spell the word, it teaches me. Now the words are like automatic, I can type them really fast. I like the review that you can do after. I like how you can pick the extra things you want to work on. I really like the ones that I have to type the word, and guess what word will become the word I am learning. I also like how I can go and check my progress and see how far I am and what words I learned. “ Julie Coney
