Reading Kindgom: Story Smarts

Disclaimer: I received a Complimentary copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. All opinions I have expressed are my own or those of my family. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC Regulations. 

Having a solid foundation in reading is very important right from the start. For the last few weeks Micah has  been plugging away at an online reading program called Story Smarts from Reading Kingdom. Reading Kingdom's Story Smarts 
The Reading Kingdom program was created by Dr. Marion Blank, world renowned reading expert and Director of the Light on Learning Program at Columbia University. Using the program she created can teach your children, aged 4 to 10, to read and write to a third grade level in a fun and exciting way. 

 
Story Smarts is a series of stories that the child reads or has read aloud to them.  They are then tested on sequencing and putting the story back together as well as reading comprehension.


 With easy-to-use and interactive components, the program offers a customized online reading instruction for your child. During the whole process, the program targets your child's weaknesses while also keeping them confident in their strengths.  Reading Kingdom is easy to start, no need to download anything. Just log on to the website and start reading! 

   If you want to try Reading Kingdom out for your family, you can sign up for 30 Day Free Trial. After the trial period has ended and you would like to continue, a subscription costs $19.99/month (with no monthly minimum), or $199.99 per year. Additional children on your account get 50% off ($9.99/month or $99.99/year) and you can cancel your subscriptions at any time. In addition, because Reading Kingdom is so passionate about everyone getting to enjoy the joy of reading there is a scholarship program available for those who qualify.

 Overall, we have enjoyed Reading Kingdom and the phonics and reading platform it supports. I look forward to continuing to use this over course of the rest of the school year so that Micah stays actively involved in reading and phonics instruction. I encourage you to look into giving it a try for your family too! Check out what my CrewMates thought by clicking the banner below!
