My daughter is home schooled. We have found that online tools have really sped her interest and grasp of reading. She is reading at a third grade level already and almost finished with her 6th month of Kindergarten. I had tried to get her to read more before she started school, but I really didn't know what I was doing. She knew her alphabet and could write most if not all of the letters before she started. Up until the beginning of December I was still having to help her read the instructions on her worksheets. The school offered a new online reading program as part of the curriculum at the end of November. Since she has started this program it unlocked her reading potential exponentially. Not only is she reading, but she is reading at a level I did not imagine possible in just a few short months.
My hope is that K5 will offer more advanced selections and challenging programs that will push her forward during the 6 week trial.
