Reading Kingdom is an online reading program Jonathan created that uses a Phonics-plus approach which combines the best parts of phonics instruction with other essential literacy skills required for reading success. The result is a program that teaches kids not only how to say words, but also what words say.

Phonics is an essential part of reading instruction. But English is highly irregular. In fact, studies show that only 1 out of 5 words can be sounded out & there are 1,768 ways to spell 40 common sounds. Consider the sentence to the right where “ea” can be pronounced 13 different ways!

That’s why Reading Kingdom uses a new “phonics plus” model of reading instruction that features innovative techniques to teach all the reading & writing skills in an integrated fashion so that they complement and reinforce each other while fostering comprehension at every level. The result is that children become successful readers.

The Reading Kingdom also sells numerous other online and offline educational products designed to teach reading, writing comprehension. These products include, Counting Kingdom, Story Smarts, and Spelling Ninja.
