I recently tried out The Homer Learn to Read program. The Homer Learn to Read program is a fast, effective way to teach your child how to read that was designed by teachers and experts. Homer is a step-by-step method that will leave parents feeling proud and worry-free. Homer works with homeschool curriculums, or as a supplement you work on at home with your child.
Homer Learn to Read won the 2015 Teacher’s Choice Gold Award. Using Homer for just 15 minutes a day has been proven to boost early reading scores by 74%.
Homer Learn to Read is for ages 3-8. Here are a few features of Homer:
22 levels, over 1,000 lessons and activities that included phonics, phonemic awareness, spelling, vocabulary, reading comprehension, quizzes. There are new lessons added every month.
After you sign up on Homer, you kids get to choose their own avatar from cute little animal pictures, then a thinking cap to put on it. Kids are then taken to Pickle Wickle Park, which is on an island. From there, they can choose which activity they would like to do. Storytime, Discover the World, Music, Learn to Read, and Adventures in History, with more activities coming soon.
Storytime is divided into 4 sections, Poetry, Fables, Folklore, and Homer Stories.
Discover the World is divided into 4 sections, Marvelous Mammals, Feathered Friends, The Human Body, & Seasons and Celebrations. Discover the World has over 70 lessons that teach over 300 vocabulary words.
Adventures in History is also divided into 4 sections, Biographies, Cool History, Time Travelers, and World Bookshelf. Adventures in History covers history, geography, and biographies. These cover dozens of important people and places. Also included are traditions, celebrations, and customs from around the world.
In the Learn to Read section, the kids do just that. Learn to Read. The first lesson is A. Kids learn the sound, recognizing the letter in upper and lower case, then identifying pictures that start with the A sound, then pictures that have A as the middle sound. After completing the section, kids get to draw.
The site has music that is easily turned off. The colors in the program are bright, and all the pictures kid friendly.
As a homeschooling parent, I love that you are able to track your kids progress, view the gallery with all their drawings, print worksheets and coloring pages.
You can also see what progress they are making with their reading.
Over all, Homer Learn to Read is a great educational website that is kid and parent friendly. This award-winning program is available for web and iPad. A Homer Learn to Read iPhone app will be available mid-February
