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.
We have made reading time with our son a priority from the very beginning. I want reading to be fun and something he will enjoy as he gets older. Lately he has showed signs of wanting to learn to read so we have been doing worksheets and other writing crafts, but this can get pretty boring for an active 3 year old boy.
With 47% of U.S. children below their reading grade level, I wanted a program to help jumpstart and develop his literacy skills. The Rosetta Stone Kids Reading Program has been perfect for this. It’s designed to encourage children ages 3-7 to learn to read.
We downloaded the app on the iPad and Carson typically plays the games for about 15 minutes in the morning while I’m getting ready and then we work on it together before bed. With so many games on each level, it keeps him engaged and entertained. Our favorite sections are the reading retention and rhyme games – perfect for pre-readers.
My favorite part of the program is the little helper Rosie. If you get the answer wrong or need a little guidance on a question you simply push the help button and she wheels out a chalkboard and explains in simple terms what is being asked. This might be Carson’s favorite thing as well because he aways says, “thanks Rosie!”
And although we still use traditional books and worksheets, I think this is an excellent additional tool for my little guy. And for those who try to really limit screen time, no worries because this program is only meant to be used for 10-15 minutes at a time a couple days of week.
You can download a free trial of the first level of Rosetta Stone Kids Program for you to try! If your kids are anything like my little guy, they will have so much fun with this program.
