Disclosure: I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.
We recently had the opportunity to review LightSail for Homeschoolers. What a fun way to improve reading skills in students.
LightSail for Homeschoolers is an adaptive homeschool reading curriculum. Their program is designed for ages 8-18 (grades 3-12). They do offer a Young Learners package also, but that is separate. LightSail offers the choice of a standard or premium subscription. The premium subscription offers more content.
The program focuses on reading, writing, vocabulary, and fluency, which helps not only give you a complete language arts program, but also helps those who may be struggling in the reading/writing area of their studies. Kids continue to build on their reading and comprehension skills.
Parents can assign their student the books/areas that they want them to work on. Students can login independently or you can easily sit with them to provide help as needed. It's very versatile and offers a wide variety of reading materials.
The one-year Premium subscription that I received gave us access to over 12,000 books, 51,000+encyclopedia articles, 150+unit studies, and more. We had no lack of materials to choose from during the review period.
The interface is very user friendly. Each child has their own login for the site. They can check books out from the library. For struggling readers, you can listen to the books also.
As you are working your way through the program, if you are unsure about how a section works, there are plenty of videos uploaded for help. The video shot below happens to be from a section in Writing that is coming soon. But it explains what is coming.
There are studies in reading, writing, and vocabulary. All of these areas intertwine.
LightSail for Homeschoolers Premium subscription really does a great job keeping everything that families need in one location to complete reading/writing/vocabulary literature program. You can even try it for a 7 day trial to see if it will be a good fit for your family.
