Let’s face it, school closures are making us all a little stir crazy. You need some time to yourself, and your child needs time away from screens. RIK has helped hundreds of children practically beg for independent reading time, with a real book, by making reading extra fun. Hesitant readers are especially motivated to love to read with RIK.
How RIK encourages independent reading
Each RIK (Reading Incentive Kit) contains five to eight packages with surprises. The young reader opens the packages at intervals throughout the book. Each kit is matched to a well-known book by a well-known author. Each package in the kit contains a surprise which is keyed to the story. Our friendly RIK character also includes a note in each package, cheering the child on. The notes (we call them think pieces) and the surprises recap what the child just read and sometimes foreshadow what’s coming up. The child is excited to keep reading, not only because of the engaging story, but also to open the next surprise. Each surprise reinforces the story, building comprehension. Check out this video for details on how RIK works.
Currently there are RIK kits for over 40 different book titles for children ages five to thirteen.
