I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Rosetta Stone. I received a product and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
As a mama, one of my primary goals for my children is to instill in them a love of reading. Reading is hands down how I love to spend my free time (not that I have much of that!). As a homeschooler I realized early on the importance of teaching my children to read, and to read well. Because of this, I constantly look for fun ways to give my kids extra reading practice.
Whenever you can find a fun program that teaches your children, without them realizing it, is a plus in my book!
Enter Rosetta Stone Kids Reading. I’m sure you have all heard of the wonderful language programs Rosetta Stone offers. Did you know that they also have a reading program? It is geared towards children ages three to seven. The kids are able to learn through games, and earning little rewards along the way.
I had the opportunity to try out this wonderful program, and my kids absolutely LOVED it. No, seriously, all they wanted to do was play the “Lingos” which are the cute little characters that help the kids learn more about reading. Both my four year old and my six year old had a great time.
They start off with matching different letters to their sounds, and move on to eventually putting sentences together. I liked that I could help them login and then they could play as many games as they wanted during their computer time, unlocking new levels along the way. It always amazes me how technologically savvy my children are at such a young age. The instructions are incredibly easy to follow, and there are always extra hints if they need it.
There is a parent portal that you can go to in order to see what your child’s progress is, and if they may need extra work on something specific.
Overall this is a wonderful program to add to your child’s regular reading program. It is fun and keeps their interest in learning to read, which can sometimes be an incredibly trying time.
If you want to try out this wonderful program, Rosetta Stone is offering the first level for free, so that you can try it out for yourself.
