Reading Kingdom Review


Reading Kingdom is an online reading & writing program for children ages 4 to 10 years old.


I was thinking Mica (almost age 8) would love this! He's big into reading, writing and technology. Mica did like their games, but he seemed to grasp things too easily. He read 7 chapter books over the weekend, if that tell you anything. The boy's nose is stuck in a book all the time. His teacher told us that he's way above his level.


It's good I had another kid to try their learning games on. Isaak (age 5) really liked it! He first watched Mica play, then played himself. I could see his mind wheels were turning. Sometimes he'd stop playing and ask, "Mom what letter do I put in there?" At first I helped him. The next session I just told him to figure it out. I love that they have the kids repeat a word in a different way. This helps them to learn it.

Prepared

I'm really glad we were given this opportunity to review Reading Kingdom. I know Isaak will get a class in school called Technology, and site words to read. I feel like he'll be on the right track with learning.

Awesome that Isaak was able to give it a try too! I liked to read all the time like your oldest does.

Sounds like a neat program. We're kind of in between needing something like that. Pierce is way beyond it, and Cort and Reid are just learning letters.

I grew up with my nose always in a book too. It's still one of my favorite childhood memories.

I like these kinds of programs. If the kiddos are going to want to be on the electric devices (and they undoubtedly are) might as well use it to your advantage. :)

This sounds like a great program! My girls are avid readers too. I think getting them started early is definitely the key to them being lifelong readers.
