“If you are teaching your child to read be sure to check out the online reading program Reading Kingdom.
Reading Kingdom is a captivating online reading program that also teaches the keyboard layout. The program works on computers and also on the iPad. Each lesson introduces a new word to learn.
There are several different activities to help learn the words. The new word is introduced and then you have to type the letters in the order. Sometimes there are letters between so the child had to distinguish which letters are correct and the correct order. If after a certain time the child has not selected or typed the word correctly, the right answers are shown on the screen. The time can be adjusted.
Since typing on the keyboard is required for the Reading Kingdom program it is nice to see that there is a game included for keyboard typing practice. The game uses a Space ship to shoots words by typing them on the keyboard. There are several levels starting with the top row of the keyboard and then other rows are added and more words appear.
Reading Kingdome shows overall progress. You can see the word being learned in the current level. You can even move students to the next lesson or have them do a lesson again. There are five levels and a placement test which determines which level the student begins with.
What we thought about Reading Kingdom
To start the program my son took the online assessment. Since my son knows simple words the program started him with words like kid and girl. My son hasn’t learned sounds like ir but the program introduces them in a way that they get plenty of practice.”
