Teaching a child to read can be FUN!

As parents embark on the journey of  teaching a child to read, obstacles can frequently appear that leave both the parent and child frustrated. Kendra is a mom who was more than happy to bypass these potential problems by using Reading Kingdom with her Kindergartener.  Here’s what she thinks about our online reading program:

“I’ll admit right here and now that next to potty training, teaching a child to read is my least favorite task. When the opportunity to review a web program designed to teach reading, writing, and comprehension arose, I jumped at it. Christian is a 5-year-old kindergartener this year, and I thought he’d be perfect to try it out.

After creating an account for your student, the program tests your little one to see where they need to begin. It then customizes a reading and writing program for your student based on their needs and abilities. The program grows and adapts as your student gains confidence and skill, adjusting as it goes.

Beginning at the kindergarten level, Christian worked on developing the skills of recognizing common written words like “boy”, “dog”, “girl”, and “pool”. He quickly picked up where the letters were on the keyboard, a skill I find abundantly valuable as a child’s familiarity with keyboards is indispensable. Soon he was learning the difference between upper and lower case letters, the use of simple punctuation, and even how to produce cases using the shift key. While the letters and words are presented on the screen, they are also being spoken aloud so he was able to see and hear the letters and words, too.

“This is fun!”, he exclaimed on day one. “I’m good at this!” The graphics are great for this level, and as Christian began to play he even said things like, “Those mushrooms are cute.” 😀 Two thumbs up from us!” – Kendra Fletcher
