It took my son less than 10 minutes to take the placement test for our review of MaxScholar and he was on his way to building comprehension and vocabulary! We received the MaxGuru program for one year and while I do limit screen time every day my son really prefers to learn this way so I am always game to try out new online programs. My son is now starting his 3rd-grade year and I really thought it was time to add vocabulary and reading comprehension into our homeschool schedule but I struggled to find a program, online or on paper that was 1) interesting 2) effective so I was happy to let him test it out! I am glad we did because it is now a regular part of our homeschool curriculum.
The MaxScholar Reading Intervention Program was designed for students with dyslexia, adhd, learning disabilities, and processing disorders. They are multi-sensory and based on the Orton-Gillingham and the Lindamood-Bell Process, as well as other programs. They can be used on the computer or tablets, we do both for at home and on the go learning.
MaxPhonics is for PreKindergarten students and teaches children the identify letters as well as the sounds they make, and how to blend the sounds. After this program your child should be kindergarten ready. Here is where my little who is Pre-K/ Kinder level will spend her time getting caught up on learning letters and sounds.
MaxBios are fun short biographies on various famous people like Lucille Ball, Adele, Pocahontas and a lot more. Children read the short paragraphs and then answer questions. My son really loved reading about Albert Einstein.
MaxReading is where my son spends most of his time on MaxScholar, here they read short stories and answer questions that are designed to build vocabulary and comprehension.
MaxWords teaches about how to build words using root words, prefixes, suffixes and syllables.
MaxMusic is a fun program they offer as well that lets children work on memory, recognition, and auditory skills through a piano game, song lyrics and more. This is a great way to break up the learning in a way that they feel is more game than school.
MaxPlaces works in geography along with reading and vocabulary practice, this was another favorite of my son to do.
After giving the program a try it will definitely become part of our daily work, I love the fact that my son gets to enjoy games as he is learning basic reading skills at the same time. While my son was reading pretty well he was struggling with comprehension and vocab and I am seeing a My 5-year-old is learning to use the computer to learn as well and will be practicing 3 times a week with the MaxPhonics-she even enjoys listening in on his lessons in MaxBios and MaxPlaces as well so she is learning there too.
