When students learn these 6 reading skills proficiency dramatically
"Reading Kingdom is the
answer to my prayers."
– Colleen Dillon, homeschooler
Reading is the single most important skill a child ever learns. But 2 out of
3 children are failing to achieve proficiency in this key skill!
Why is learning to read so challenging for so many?
Until now, reading programs focused almost exclusively on phonics-only
instruction. While learning sounds (phonics) is an essential skill, there are
many other skills that a child must develop in order to become a successful
reader. Moreover, English is so irregular that sounding out is frequently an
impossibly challenging task for a new reader. Consider the following sentence
where the very common "ea" letter combination has 13 different sounds!
In fact, in English irregularity is the rule because there are 1,768 ways to
spell 40 common sounds.
So how do you handle this challenge?
By teaching all the key reading and writing skills comprehensively so they
complement and reinforce each other! Reading Kingdom is the only program
available that uses the patented "6-SIM" Six Skill Integrated Method developed
by Dr. Marion Blank, a world-renowned educator from Columbia University. When
children are taught all 6 skills they learn how to read easily – and they do so
with the added benefit of achieving fluency and strong comprehension skills.
