Teaching a child to read can be daunting for many parents. Early readers need to practice a variety of skills and continue to review and challenge themselves in order to grow into fluent readers. Although reading with your child is invaluable, many parents are looking for supplemental help for their early readers. Education.com recommends Headsprout’s premier reading software program to grow your young reader.
Headsprout reading software guides young readers through a series of Web-based, animated lessons. Learning to read is a fun adventure with Headsprout’s cast of animated characters that helps capture kids’ imaginations. At the core of this reading software program are the proven skills all children must master while learning to read.
Headsprout reading software is developmentally appropriate, organized into 80 Web-based interactive episodes, each between 15 and 30 minutes long.
The earliest episodes begin with the fundamentals, but the lessons gradually increase in difficulty, building upon the skills developed in previous sessions. The reading software program includes detailed progress reports and a variety of printed books to practice independent reading off-line as well.
