Hand Selected Picture Books for Kindergarteners
Your child will feel empowered by these kindergarten reading program books with simple words and sentences with fun characters in engaging stories. We’ve chosen the best time-tested books and compelling stories that will open your son or daughter’s world of reading.
Each week, the kindergarten reading program curriculum provides two fun digital books for your child to read aloud. Your child will learn how to talk about and summarize the stories they have read. You’ll also receive a reading selection each week to read aloud to help build their awareness of words and stories.
Learn beginning phonics with interactive video spelling lessons.
Scholar Within’s kindergarten reading program includes spelling and phonics lessons. Your child will learn to identify and match individual letters with their sounds. They will start to understand that spoken words are made up of individual sounds (phonemic awareness). Putting several individual sounds together makes words. The individual sounds of /b/, /a/, and /t/ come together to make the word /bat/.
Our interactive video kindergarten spelling lessons explain step-by-step how words are put together. Your child will learn to spell 10 new words each week according to their phonetic spelling patterns. Your child will also learn to recognize easy sight words.
Letter Recognition and Pattern Matching
Your child will work on recognizing letter shapes and names. They will work on matching upper and lower case letters. They will also work on completing letter and shape patterns through simple kindergarten worksheets.
Rapid Automatized Naming
Rapid naming is one of the biggest predictors of a child’s success with reading. This is your child’s ability to see a shape, symbol, word, or object and to instantly recognize what it is. We have simple, custom-designed drills that you will do a practice and timed read where your child will see their progress in 3-4 days. These drills also work on their eye-tracking skills and start to move their eyes fluidly from left to right across a page. These rapid naming drills are the perfect way to set your kindergarten reader up for success with reading words from left to right.
Build Long Term Memory Skills
Your child will answer questions to the books that they have read in the program a day or two after. Your child will learn to remember and recall what they have read by reviewing notes that they have written or dictated about the reading. Yes, comprehension is important for kindergarten level readers.
The brain and body work together as a machine, one designed to move through space efficiently, walking, moving, and maintaining balance. This connection allows you to see the shapes, sizes, and positions of letters on a page as well as improve eye tracking skills. As we improve the brain-body connection, reading and overall learning improve.
We have different activities each week that your kids will think are just fun games, but the activities actually work on improving their motor skills and brain-body connection.
Build Executive Function Skills
Executive function skills are the decision making and planning skills that we all need in our daily lives. Your child will help decide when they will do certain activities and they will estimate how long each activity will take. After the activity is completed, they will reflect on how long it actually took and will start to build their time awareness and planning skills.
Research-Driven, Results-Proven Curriculum
Every component of our reading program is research-based and is specifically designed to boost your kindergarten child’s reading skills. The program has been created by learning expert and board-certified educational therapist Bonnie Terry, M.Ed. She put together her 35+ years of working hands-on with children of all learning styles and abilities into this step-by-step program with custom-designed methods that you and your kids will see results each week.
Develop a Love of Reading
Reading will start to make sense to your child. Your child will develop a strong foundation of reading and overall learning skills. These skills include print awareness, phonemic awareness, letter recognition, phonics skills, and sight word recognition.
