I am home educating my 6 and 5 year old sons who are starting Kindergarten and one preschoolers who 3 years old. Setting the foundation for strong reading skills is a top priority in my classroom. In addition to our reading curriculum, I also add supplemental resources to ensure a comprehensive reading program. My 6 year old has mild autism, and ADHD, my 5 year old picks up things much easier. A few weeks ago I was selected to review for 1 year Reading Kingdom for both sons. When selected for this review, Reading Kingdom sent special instructions for my older son. While these instructions were helpful, he really picked up on the program easier than he had other programs.
Reading Kingdom which is an online program that is designed for children ages 4-10. It was created by Dr. Marion Blank, who has drawn upon her 40 years of experience as a leading expert in literacy to develop an excellent reading program that helps children learn to read and write up to a third grade level.
I love that Reading Kingdom expands on the traditional phonics method to teach words that cannot be sounded out phonemically (the majority of words in the English language), with my 6 year old it helps his speech delays.
The program customizes itself to the child and it adapts to their particular strengths and weaknesses. The first part of the program is an assessment/skills survey. Right off I was pleased with the detail of the instructions that are provided. So many programs provide minimum instructions, leaving my sons frustrated and lost. Not with Reading Kingdom, they were excited to complete the levels.

after he completed the word.
Both of my sons enjoy this program so much that they beg for it first thing every morning. This is great because Reading Kingdom uses a multi-faceted approach that is designed to teach an integrated reading and writing program based on word recognition, and there is support if needed. We have a year to use this program and I am loving how excited my boys are about learning to read.
Reading Kingdom is proud to be used by celebrities like Cindy Crawford with her own children. I highly recommend the Reading Kingdom online program for pre-readers, beginning readers and any child who may be struggling to read.
