Karen is a mom whose daughter has been “playing” our reading game. Here’s what she has to say about our program and how it helps children learn while they play:
“Reading Kingdom is a new reading and writing system developed by Dr. Marion Blank, a world renowned expert on literacy and the Director of the Light on Learning Institute at Columbia University. It uses a 6 skill model of reading instruction and incorporates elements of phonics and whole language while teaching additional skills required for reading and writing success without requiring kids to learn any complicated rules. This is not your typical reading “game”. It is completely educational, but feels like a game. There is no “arcade” so I feel confident in allowing my child to “play” on Reading Kingdom without feeling like she is wasting time.
My 6 (almost 7 year old) Jenna has been using Reading Kingdom each day. The lessons are short enough that she doesn’t feel overwhelmed, but long enough that she is really learning. I like how Reading Kingdom teaching sequencing, motor skills, sounds (phonics), meaning, grammar and comprehension. Parents can change the amount of response time the child is allowed. This is very helpful for children that aren’t that fast on the keyboard or just need some extra time to respond. Included is a section for teaching the keyboard as well. We did not use that. One other thing to note is that the child (or parent) can opt to have a keyboard on the screen to click or use the physical keyboard. I think this is a nice option.
I really like Reading Kingdom. I can see how Jenna is progressing with her reading. I also like how the writing skills are also incorporated.” — Karen Gouvin
