LiteracyPlanet is an online literacy program used by more than 70,000 Australian children. An awesomely fun way to learn and an easy way for parents to support their child’s literacy learning, an ‘At Home’ version of the popular LiteracyPlanet program has been launched just this November.
It’s a common concern between parents of just how to kit themselves out with the right tools at home to support their children’s school learning and LiteracyPlanet is a perfect solution. It’s designed by educators, aligned with the Australian Curriculum, endorsed by teachers and regularly used within schools all over Australia – so to have it at home helps support and enhance your child’s literacy learning.
A child is never too young to learn the building blocks of literacy and LiteracyPlanet isn’t just for school aged children – little ones aged as young as three can join in using the pre-reading content and play based exercises, aimed at improving reading readiness and developing the essential visual and auditory perceptions required before learning how to read words. The best thing perhaps is the fun the kids have along the way, they don’t even realise they’re learning!
Once pre-reading stages are accomplished, children aged four to 15 can work their way through the LiteracyPlanet program learning and practicing comprehension, reading, grammar, punctuation and spelling along the way with this game-style learning technology. There are more than 15,000 fun, interactive, incentive based activities to keep children busy, interested and motivated. Points, credits and rewards are earned throughout the program and kids can choose their own challenge level playing solo or with friends and siblings.
The LiteracyPlanet platform allows kids to select activities to suit themselves and progress at their own pace, which makes it excellent for those with learning difficulties. In fact, The Macquarie University has used LiteracyPlanet to assist the learning of dyslexic children for the past two years.
LiteracyPlanet subscriptions are very reasonably priced – for a single child you can subscribe from as little as $14 a month, $69 for six months and just $95 for a whole year with options for signing up multiple children.
