Your children will—
Children complete animated online lessons where they will learn the 5 essential elementsof reading, Phonemic awareness, Phonics, Fluency, Vocabulary and Comprehension. Thevariety of fun activities within each lesson provides the repetition needed for these skills to become part of long term memory.
Every lesson ends with a new book. This allows children to gain confidence by reading books that only contain words they have already learned in the program.
Children earn golden eggs as rewards for completing lessons. They can use these eggs to buy reward games, avatar features to customize their own avatar and items to personalize their virtual playhouse.
After every 10 lessons, children complete a Mastery Quiz. This provides you with a report of what your children are learning. Children can repeat the online lessons as many times as they like. Young children enjoy repetition and it has great benefits too, as it helps them learn.
