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.
Did you know that 47% of children are reading below their grade level? As parents, we need to take responsibility and realize that the schools can’t teach our children everything. We need to be actively involved in their education, and supplement their learning at home.
There are a lot of ways that you can help your child learn to read at home. The simplest thing you can do is to read stories with your child. If they’re younger, read the book to them. If they’re older, have them read to you or a sibling every day.
If you’re already doing that and your child still needs more help, consider an app that will make learning to read more fun. One of those applications is Rosetta Stone Kids Reading.
I have been using Rosetta Stone Kids with my girls for a few weeks now. Kaylee is 4, so I’ve had her on the pre-K reading levels and it is challenging her. I see her skills improving each week. She is asking me a lot about what different words are she sees and also wants to know what sounds different letters make.
I’ve been trying to have her use the app for around 15 minutes at a time on the days she’s not in pre-school. It holds her attention, and sometimes she’ll even play for 30 minutes or more. When her big sister is doing her homework, I also give her the tablet and have her do her homework – Rosetta Stone Kids Reading. I’m looking forward to seeing how her skills progress in the coming months as she prepares for Kindergarten.
I have also used the app with Zoë, who’s in first grade, a few times when she finishes her homework early. I’m not sure we’ve found the right level on the app for her yet because she keeps telling me it’s too easy for her. Since the app is designed for kids ages 3-7 (she’ll be 7 in May), she’s nearing the end of the age span, so it may be best used with her younger sister.
If your child is struggling with their reading skills, check out Rosetta Stone Kids Reading. You can get a free download, which includes the first level of the program, to test it out with your child before purchasing. Download it here.
If your child has a tablet or will be receiving one for Christmas, consider Rosetta Stone Kids Reading as a great app to add!
