Brillkids Little Reader
I'm one of the mothers that teaching my kids with Brillkids Little Reader and Little Math program. If anyone is using flashcards or Glen Doman method teaching your baby or preschooler, then Little Reader is an ideal tool for you.
It is a software for teaching your child to read by the pre-planned one-year program for you to follow. It is based on Doman method and top up with picture flash, VDO and phonics. The program leads your child from learning single words, to couplets, phrases, complete sentences, and full stories.
It requires just 5-10 minutes once or twice a day. All you need to do is choose lesson day, click ‘play’ and have fun with your child.
Inside the Lesson
Once you click play, lesson will show as follow:
• Word flash (flash on word only with pronunciation—clap, wave, kick…)
• Multisensory (flash on word with pronunciation--clap, follow by picture with a short sentence –put your hands together!, and a vdo clip of clapping)
• Picture flash (flash on picture only with pronunciation)
• Pattern phonics (teach on phonics, start from day 21 lesson onwards)
• Story times
Over 1 year, there are 2 semesters with a 130 days lesson each semester (for Monday to Friday, or as you like). It covers 3000 words in 180 catagories.
The same list of words is never shown on two consecutive days - instead, one word from each category is added while another one is retired daily.
A typical word is packaged with 5 pictures, 3 pronunciations, 1-2 videos, and 2 picture-commentary audio files. Therefore, each lesson is unique, showing different pictures, fonts and sounds of the same word to broaden your child’s experience.
I’m a working mama so the program really saves my time for lesson preparation and on another hand I have a quality material ready for my teaching. I can continuously teach daily without any disruption even I’m busy with my work or other elder children.
Little Reader also offers a Chinese curriculum (traditional / simplified Chinese) for those who want to teach their children to read Mandarin.
Once you purchase the software, unlimited additional contents can be downloaded as per your topic of interests.
Besides, you can download foreign language contents created by native speakers in over two dozen languages. The program can be use for lifetime.
