Isn’t it great when you find a teaching method that your children and students love to do? Jasmine is a mom who found that out when she introduced Reading Kingdom to her daughter.
“Over the course of the last few weeks, I have been busy helping to take care of my mother (who is terminally ill). We have spent the last few weeks at the hospital. During all of this time, Hannah would frequently ask, “Can I do my Reading Kingdom?” She would have one of the older kids help her login when I wasn’t available. Honestly, it seemed more like a game for her–something to occupy her time. After seven weeks of playing using Reading Kingdom, I sat down with her to watch her do several sessions and see how she was progressing. I was so pleased by her progress! I had her read several things to me and she not only knew the words, but was so fluid in her reading.
One of the things that caught my attention (and that I was so thankful for) was the fact that the program teaches capitalization and punctuation along with reading. This may be a no brainer for some of you, but I have always taught phonics separately from beginning grammar. This program combines them so that they are learning the mechanics of writing as they learn to read.
Another plus is that Reading Kingdom also teaches spelling. There are several little games where the student has to type in the missing letters. A couple of months ago, even though Hannah could read easy readers, she was nowhere ready to spell the words she was reading. I sat down with her today and she would look at the words with missing letters and fill in the letters with no problem. I have to tell you, my heart was filled with joy. It was such a blessing to hear her start reading those words like she was a pro!” — Jasmine Lucero
