Click N Kids Phonics and Spelling Programs
by Jules and John
Our family have used the Click N Kids phonics and spelling programs for all but the oldest of our 5 children, and it has been a tremendous boost to their reading and spelling ability.
We looked into the LeapFrog games but didn't think they were anywhere near as comprehensive as Click N Kids, which has won a number of awards from educational institutions.
You need a computer of course as all the coursework is online, but they come with lesson plans, books to read that compliment the system and a lifetime access. You can transfer to any other child and can even transfer the lifetime membership to another family when you are done with them.
Some of the programs have 100 lessons in them, and I have friends who homeschool who use the Click N Read Phonics and Spelling systems as the base of their language curriculum. It is all developed by qualified teachers and professors in conjunction with the school curriculum, so you know you are teaching the correct things.
I wish I had got the system when my eldest child was young, he struggled much more than the the other children with grasping the basics and now years later, We can see the difference in how they attack spelling a new word or reading something complicated.
A lot of schools use the same system too - the Click N Read Phonics program is for younger children - up to Grade 3 and the Click N Spell is the program for children a bit older up to Grade 5.
Our second youngest child is autistic and even he has mastered click N kids - you can see their progress online with reports etc.
There is a 60 day guarantee, so long as you complete all the lessons, and if you think there is no improvement then they refund your money.
Nothing to loose! We highly recommend Click N Kids as the best educational programs.
