Q:

Looking for Internet programs that can help my fourth grader practice reading at home.

"I have a fourth grader who needs help with reading. I am trying to find programs on the net that she can do at home to help her but unfortunately I'm a beginner with the computer and am having trouble finding sites to help me help her on her reading to get her up to the level of fourth grade. I'm hoping someone can suggest some sites? Thank you."

I would definitely suggest using either Phillip Roy or Phillip Roy Academy's academic curricula. They are great! Very affordable and extremely comprehensible for all levels. I love their pre-k program, too, not that it matters! So, visit their site and see if it would work for you!

I'm sure you've heard of them because HoP has been a best selling reading program for over 20 years. Two important things to note. They place a really big emphasis on teaching parents how to teach their children - so YOU get the training. Secondly, they offer a 30 day guarantee that you'll be happy with your child's progress within that period, otherwise return the product for a full refund.

Phonics are of utmost importance to kids as far their understanding of each letter are concerned. As I have teaching background I can vouch for the method of teaching reading through phonics as the association of sound and pictorial representation of letters are important for development of cognitive abilities in kids.

You can learn more about a great learning program in the following website:

One of the best things we did for our kids was get them an online/web based learning to read program.  It gave them a lot of confidence when they got to the classroom.  Check out www.helptoread.net for a good one.  It's been really helpful.

Hi Christina,
One fantastic resource is YouTube & just search for Phonics Reading or Phonics lessons etc.
The other good place for free stuff in the BBC iPlayer, which I assume you can get anywhere? I just use the app' Search under 'Children' (see link below)
There are 2 other internet programs that I would recommend, I have put the links in the resource box below...one is mainly online & can get accessed worldwide....the other is internet & books, they do ship worldwide but at a cost (it is a US based program)....as with most of them they are pretty cheap ($15) & have 30 day trials which is always handy (especially if you can milk them for what you can in those 30 days!!)
Good Luck!
Lisa

a alone in your search for online resources for teaching your child Christina. I was driven a similar need to go in search of a site that could give me pointers on how to school my little Eddie. Thing that stands out in one such site I discovered is the articulation of detail in the learning process. I mean, even I have come out with so much knowledge that I surprise myself. And Eddie is at ease learning in the familiar confines of our house. So much so, that he just regards learning as just another fun thing we do together.
