Every child is different! We all know this instinctively, but our education system, due to budget concerns and historical precedent tends to take a one-size-fits-all approach. Classroom teaching may aim to accommodate individual differences, but its group-based instruction places this goal out of reach. But the use of computers offers amazing new opportunities such as reading software for kids that customizes teaching for each child's reading skills and needs.
The Reading Kingdom reading software for kids has been created with these reading skills and needs in mind. As children move through the reading software program, the path they take will be customized to their particular reading needs based on their previous interactions. Because of this, each child's experience in the Reading Kingdom is unique. You could say that our reading software for kids is "kid customized".
You can see this right from the start with the reading Skills Survey. This is an activity that a child completes in the reading software program before the actual teaching begins. The reading software assesses his or her skills in reading and writing. Based on the results, the program places each child at the point that is just right for his or her reading skill level. This prevents children from wasting time learning something they already know (which leads to boredom) or being faced with tasks that are too difficult for them (which leads to frustration).
Also, all the teaching activities within the reading software that follow have been scientifically designed to take advantage of a child's strengths and to help him or her overcome any weaknesses. For example, The Reading Kingdom:
Finally, there is another component that is vital to learning which is rarely found in most kid's online reading programs. It relates to having a sense of control over your life. Children, of course, do not have the option of deciding whether they want to learn to read. But the fact that reading is required doesn't mean that children cannot have a sense of control over their experience. The Reading Kingdom reading software for kids gives them this power by offering optional post lesson activities where they choose what to do. This optional component provides a sense of control that is invaluable to motivate learning.
