Kumon’s founder, Toru Kumon, firmly believed that reading is a fundamental part of all education. Children who acquire strong reading skills at an early age often enjoy a more successful educational experience. While we think children should establish a passion for reading early on, we also know that reading skills can be improved at any age. Starting with basic phonics, Kumon Reading progresses all the way through advanced comprehension. Kumon Reading continues to be our fastest-growing program.
Example areas covered:
· Prereading skills
· Vocabulary building
· Grammar and punctuation
· Reading comprehension
The Kumon Reading Program is perfect for:
· Giving prereaders and early readers a solid foundation and a head start.
· Improving overall reading and writing skills at all grade levels.
· Increasing your child’s vocabulary and reading comprehension.
· Developing a love of reading and appreciation of great literature.
Through a series of progressive worksheets, children advance through the Kumon Program, mastering skills and concepts, acquiring invaluable independent study habits and learning techniques and the confidence needed to succeed.
Students complete worksheets at their Kumon Learning Centers and at home. The assignments take approximately a half-hour, leaving children plenty of time for extracurricular activities.
Kumon’s assignments build on each subject to develop a comprehensive understanding of reading. Each worksheet not only covers specific concepts, but also helps students interpret information, expand their vocabularies and enhance reading, writing and overall comprehension.
The Kumon program is present in 46 countries and regions of the world. As of August 2010, there are 4.250, 000 children enrolled in this program.
