Reading Kingdom Review

Reading Kingdom

Product Description

Reading Kingdom is an award-winning online program that teaches children 4-10 to read and write to a 3rd grade level. The program is based on the work of Dr. Marion Blank from Columbia University, one of the world’s top experts on reading and language development. It uses her patented and research based “6-SIM” (Six Skill Integrated Method) technique that yields incredible results.

This program is designed so that children can use it on their own – so all you have to do is create an account and then get them started. Here is what you will need for this program:

  • A computer with a mouse
  • Internet access
  • Your computer will need a free web browser like Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc. & Flash player
  • A quiet, distraction-free place to work
  • An adult to supervise a child logging on and getting started
  • Children should be at least 4 years old, be able to sit quietly and pay attention for 15 minutes, and they should be able to use a mouse
  • to ensure success, a child should use the program at least 4 days a week

Reading kingdom uses a 6-skill-model of reading instruction that incorporates elements of phonics and whole language while teaching additional skills required for reading and writing success without requiring the kids to learn all those complicated rules. In fact, the Reading Kingdom is the only system that teaches these six skills. When children are taught all six skills, they easily master both reading and writing. By focusing on these skills, Reading Kingdom teaches children 4-10 years of age how to read and write at a third grade level. So teach a child to read today and give the gift that lasts a lifetime.

I love how this program is customized from one child to the next. It is very important that parents DO NOT help the child with answers because it will not be a true assessment of the child’s skills. They start out taking a skills survey to see where they are so they are started off at the right level for ultimate success. not only that but it is even more customized then that. Just look:

The Reading Kingdom:

is structured so that a child skips over words that he or she can already read and write. That not only saves precious time, but accelerates learning which adds to a child’s motivation.
offers tutoring techniques that enable a child to overcome any errors he or she may encounter with the reading software. This allows every activity to end successfully, with a resulting increase in skill and confidence.
includes a Progress Check at the end of each of the five levels of reading/writing, to assess whether a child has mastered that level in the reading software. If the achievement is on track, he or she moves to the next level of the reading software; if it is not, a set of review activities is provided to bring a child to the level needed for continued progress.

I think this is a must have program for parents of young children! My sons are 4 and 6 and I think this program works great for both of them. If you are homeschooling your children or if your child is struggling what do you have to loose by trying out their FREE TRIAL.  With the colorful pages and interactive characters my son is really enjoying using this program!  I wish program ran a bit faster as there is some delay from one screen to the next but overall we really enjoy using this program and will continue to use it. There are added benefits with this program that I really enjoy as well like these.

Keeping track
After a short time, most children are using the program totally on their own. Even though you may not be there during the lessons, you’ll have no trouble keeping track of how your child is doing. At any time, you can log into your account and view a report that shows you precisely where your child is in the program and how he or she is doing.
Reporting
In addition, progress reports will also be emailed to you on a regular basis. And if your child needs your attention we’ll let you know.

How great is this? I being able to track his progress if I am working with another one of my children and can’t watch all of his answers. Plus with the emails I can also keep the hubby up-to-speed. They are always available to answer questions and with all their social media options we can support each other as well.
