Schoolhouse Crew Review~Samson's Classroom

Samson's Classroom is an online learning website for grades K-5, focusing on sight words, spelling, and reading.  With Dyslexia, Chad struggles in these areas and we have found that online games definitely help him progress. 

Sight Words with Samson is proven to help early readers master the 224 most commonly used words in the English language. Spelling with Samson is the most comprehensive spelling product on the market with over 5,000 words available.  Reading with Samson helps students learn how to comprehend and analyze what they are reading. 

The games are so much fun! This treasure chest game pictured above is Chad's absolute favorite Sight Word game from Samson's Classroom.  He enjoys all the games, and will actually keep going back until he gets every single answer correct!  There is a demo video you can watch to learn more about the program. 

Samson's Classroom is affordable at only $30 for a one-year membership for one student, or $50 for one year for up to four students.  There are also school memberships available.  Pricing information is available here

Our experience with Samson's Classroom was a positive one.  All of the games were a hit, and he is really learning a lot while playing them.  The Reading section was more advanced for Chad, and he could not do it himself.  I would help him read the passages, and then he would answer the questions himself.  There are lots of resources, including lesson plans and worksheets, on the website.  As a parent, you can always check what your child has been doing and how successful they are.  Kids also see for themselves what they have mastered, which is very motivating for my child.  You can try Samson's Classroom out for yourself by playing demo versions of the games!  For more Crew reviews, click the banner below:
