Headsprout Early Reading

In 80 episodes, your child will go from being a non-reader to reading at a mid-2nd grade level!

During the first half of Headsprout Early Reading, children learn through direct positive experience that letters and sounds go together to make words, words go together to make sentences, and sentences make stories. The basic component skills and strategies necessary for reading, such as phonemic awareness (the sounds within words), print awareness, phonics, sounding out, segmenting and blending, are explicitly mastered in a fun, self-directed manner. The second half of the program focuses more on reading vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension, while still teaching more sounds and sight words. Your child will have a fluent knowledge of more than 90 phonetic elements, more than 100 sight words, and a potential reading vocabulary of more than 5,000 words!

    “When your 6-year-old tells you, ‘I love Headsprout because it teaches me,’ you know you really have a strong program. I have been home schooling my two children for about 13 years and Headsprout is what I have always been searching for. It is the rare exception to find a curriculum that actually breaks down the instruction so that the student can absorb the lesson and learn. The progress our daughter made with Headsprout is impressive. Headsprout is a superior company with a superior program.”
