New Literacy Site, Practickle.com, Prepares Preschoolers and Kindergarteners with Lifelong Reading Skills
RENO, Nev., June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Practickle.com, an internet-based company with a unique approach to early literacy, announces today the launch of its website for preschool and kindergarten children. Practickle.com provides parents, educators and caregivers with carefully selected reading materials and activities designed to build strong literacy skills early. Practickle.com’s June launch is timed to coincide with the upcoming school break making subscribing to Practickle.com a great way to start the summer with new and fun reading comprehension activities.
“Strong literacy strategies that enhance reading comprehension are recognized in the academic world as fundamental to independent learning,” says CC Linstroth, co-founder of Practickle.com. “Successful reading experiences build a broad knowledge base that supports the comprehension of new information and ideas.”
With four higher education degrees including Reading Specialist, Elementary Education, Experiential Education, and Child Development, Linstroth leads Practickle.com’s content and creative department. “It is my lifelong passion to help children master the skills to become extraordinary learners and strong readers.”
Each month Practickle.com offers website subscribers four age-appropriate reading suggestions accompanied by a three-part reading guide to help kids improve their reading comprehension. Each reading comprehension guide is based on pre-reading, during-reading, and post-reading Best Practice strategies. These research-based early literacy Best Practices help build the skills necessary to be a successful lifelong reader. Living up to the motto, “Literacy is a hoot,” each lesson is planned to be fun as well as educational.
Practickle’s yearly subscription rate of $60 breaks down to $5 a month. That’s close to the cost of one latte a month at your local cafe. To learn more about the program, visit Practickle.com. Families, educators and caregivers can experience this program firsthand by signing up for Practickle.com’s seven day free trial.
Subscribers who choose not to use the research-based reading guides can benefit from subscribing to Practickle.com to receive the monthly book recommendations to read to their children.
