Lighthouse Reader motivates children to read and write by incorporating fun challenges and rewards.
The primary way LightHouse Reader gamifies reading is through badges. A child can earn fun badges for a multitude of tasks like completing a book, reading a new genre, getting a perfect score on a Spelling Bee, and much more. Badges also motivate a child to improve their skills by offering an incentive to retake assessments they missed the first time.
Additionally, parents can attach badges to specific goals of their choosing such as reading a certain number of words or completing a homework assignment. Through their own dashboard, children can view all of the badges they’ve earned and ones yet to be earned as a fun way for them to track their progress.
In addition to badges, a parent can use the “gift” feature to add a prize to the goals they set for their child. This is where you can truly personalize LightHouse Reader and motivate your child to read by selecting a gift that is meaningful to them. Ten extra minutes of TV time or a special trip out for ice cream--you choose what gift will provide that extra incentive to persevere.
With a parent’s permission, a child can also share the news of their awards and milestones to social media directly from the LightHouseReader platform. They can also share accomplishments with other young readers in Book Club, Clubhouse, and Book Chat, all while giving you parental supervision and control over the connections they make with other children.
LightHouse Reader organically integrates many options to make reading more fun and enjoyable for your young reader. Through badges, gifts, social sharing, and more, LightHouse Reader brings a gamification aspect to the reading experience that motivates your child to read, engage, and excel.
