Reading Software -- The Big Picture

Reading. Students who fail to master this subject early in their school careers face daunting prospects. This month SuperKids reviewers took a look at programs that cover the ages from 3 to 12. From youngest to oldest they include:

  • JumpStart Phonics [for ages 3 to 6] from Knowledge Adventure, offers a novel approach to teaching phonics and early reading to young children.

  • The JumpStart Phonics Learning System [for ages 3 to 8] from Knowledge Adventure, expands on the base program (above) to provide parents with multi-media material for teaching children to read.

  • Reading Blaster for Kindergarten [for ages 4 to 6] from Knowledge Adventure, takes kindergartners undersea to hunt for treasure and complete familiar looking pre- and early-reading activities.

  • Reader Rabbit's Reading 4-6 [for ages 4 to 6] from The Learning Company, is a systematic, phonics-based reading program.

  • Reader Rabbit's Reading 6-9 [for ages 6 to 9] from The Learning Company, is a must-have program for early readers, that uses a carefully sequenced learning progression.

  • Clue Finders Reading Adventures [for ages 9 to12] from The Learning Company, is a solid reading comprehension builder for older students, cast in an arcade game style program.
