Older Children Benefit from Reading Kingdom’s Comprehensive Approach

Reading Kingdom’s multi-pronged approach to literacy works with readers who are above grade level, as well as children who are only beginning to learn to read.  Jill is a mom who found this out with her 8 year old  when she signed her up for our online reading game.

Here’s what she has to say:

Miriam, who is 8, was our tester for this product. She picked up the program very quickly and loved to work in it. I would log in for her and then she would click on the owl, and away she would go. She would complete at least one lesson, but usually two at a sitting. This would take anywhere from 15 –25 minutes depending on how many lessons she would do.

Miriam loved to get the little rewards when she collected a pre-determined number of points. This was a passport that she could open and balloons would be waiting at the bottom. For each reward a balloon would float up and she could click on it to see the surprise that came out!

I found this to be a very engaging program for Miriam. She was always eager to play and thought of it more as a game instead of a reading program. We used this as her fun computer time during the day.

I think this program has helped Miriam specifically with her writing. It requires capitals and punctuation when typing which has helped her remember these in her pencil and paper writing. Because she already reads above grade level, this program served as a great supplement to help keep up her reading skills.

If you have a child who could use a supplemental program to help advance their overall literacy skills, sign up for a free 30 day trial of Reading Kingdom and see how we can help.  Lingo and company will see you soon!
