I was excited to try out a new site that would help my kiddos read better and Reading Kingdom sounded like a great one to try!

Our commitment to online reading for kids is based on our patented six skills method for reading success. These skills include sequencing, motor skills, phonics (phonemic awareness), meaning, grammar and reading comprehension. Our online reading for kids program is ideal for preschool, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade, special education, homeschool, and English as a second language. The Reading Kingdom online reading for kids program is an ideal supplement to existing curricula, as well an excellent independent curriculum. Our online reading for kids program is also a great educational alternative to other entertainment options. In fact, most children refer to the Reading Kingdom as a reading game, since it is so fun to play. We’re proud that our reading programs for kids are thought of as reading games (especially by kids!).In addition to our online reading for kids program, we also offer a number of additional, low-cost materials and books that complement our online reading program.

I had my four and a half year old daughter try this out, to see how well it worked for the lower end of the age range. First they test your kiddo to see where they are at (with no help from you whatsoever). My daughter did pretty well with them, they stopped pretty soon after she started getting bored. When she did get a little bored, she was able to pause it until she was ready to start back up (you have 15 minutes to pause). My three-year-old wanted to play too! I was proud of how well my daughter has done. Then they start in on reading lessons that are like games. Pretty cool as a curriculum, but I know my little girl was more interested in getting to the games! I think this will help her out a ton and I’m looking forward to getting my older kiddo on, to see how she does!
