Schoolhouse Crew Review~Reading Kingdom

 As part of the Schoolhouse Review Crew, I was delighted to find out we were going to review Reading Kingdom again.  This is a wonderful online program for parents and teachers that teaches children to read and write up to a 3rd grade level.  The suggested age range is 4-10 but can be used by anyone not yet at the 3rd grade reading level.  Reading Kingdom is easy to use, and fun for children too! 
Reading Kingdom was created by Dr. Marion Blank, a world renowned expert on literacy.  Her program is the only program to incorporate elements of whole language and phonics, plus additional skills for reading and writing success without requiring memorizing complicated rules.  These six skills taught are:

My son Chad is 10 years old and has Dyslexia.  He is at about a 2nd grade level in his reading.  What is really great about Reading Kingdom is that your child is given a skills assessment and then placed at the level they need to be at.  The program adjusts to your child's skill level and where he/she needs to be.  This aspect of the program makes me feel good about how he is progressing, I know he is learning what he needs to.  Chad enjoys Reading Kingdom-he is learning but still having fun.  The activities are fun for kids, while they learn!  We used Reading Kingdom four to five days a week. 

For such a great program, it is affordable too.  You can start with a Free 30 Day Trial. After that, Reading Kingdom is $19.99 per month or $199.99 per year (20% savings over monthly).  Additional children on your account are 50% off.  There are supplemental products available as well at the Reading Kingdom Store. 

Be sure to visit the Reading Kingdom Website for lots of valuable information and resources.  If you have a new or struggling reader, this is the program for you!
