Headsprout Adaptive Reading Program

I have access to 1 classroom (36 seats) to Headsprout, an individualized, adaptive reading program used in reading intervention class. I currently have enrolled 3rd grade and Kinder Reading Intervention students. 

The Headsprout System

What truly sets Headsprout apart from other online reading programs is its one-of-a-kind scaffolded teaching approach that automatically adapts so every student receives the individualized practice and instruction they need. With Headsprout, kids learn to read and read to learn. Early readers interact with engaging online episodes and read printable eBooks designed to instill key reading fundamentals like phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and beginning comprehension. Once readers have demonstrated a solid grasp of the basics, they move on to episodes created to teach the four primary components of reading comprehension: finding facts, making inferences, identifying themes, and learning vocabulary in context.

Headsprout has been rigorously tested and is the perfect online instructional resource for schools and parents looking for an effective, adaptive, and fun kids' reading program that is easy to implement and use. Every child can become a successful reader. Headsprout is the program that will help them reach that goal.
