As Reading Kingdom is an excellent program for children to learn to read, it is also a great intervention program for struggling readers. Allyson is a mom who found Reading Kingdom for her daughter – here’s what she thinks:
“With reading, my daughter has been remedial since day one. It has been a real concern for me, and you would think that since I taught school in another lifetime, I would be able to help her excel at this. We have tried, but the harder she works, the harder it seems… I found a great online resource known as Reading Kingdom that is for ages 4-10 (she’s 9). This program is actually tailored for most children, and I could use it for my four year old who is currently reading 3 letter words. However, this program is based on one of the world’s top experts on reading and language development, Dr. Marion Blank from Columbia University, and it uses a patented “6-SIM” (Six Skill Integrated Method) technique which shows awesome results. This not only teaches to read, but specializes in what I like to call “different readers:” Children on the Spectrum, Dyslexia, ADD, and children with Learning disabilities…She has continued to use this program daily, and I am already seeing improvement in how well she is reading. She loves this program and asks every day if she can do her “homework.” I love that she thinks she is playing a game, but she is learning.
This program doesn’t waste time teaching her things she already knows. It takes into account her correct answers, and what she is getting wrong. The next game will have things she doesn’t know and omit what she has already gotten right! We are going to continue to use this curriculum, and I can’t wait to see how she continues to succeed! I know that just the progress we have seen already is enough for me to make sure she continues to use this program until she has gone through the last level!” – Allyson Bossie
