What is Litnerd?
Litnerd is an online reading club program with a weekly live meetup to help students make reading a lifelong habit.
Think of us as “book club meets gaming”. New books go live weekly, and each book has movie adaptations, music, reading courseware, mini lessons with a virtual teacher and worksheets.
There are reading tournaments every month to recognize the top reader. The goal of our app is to create a fun and engaging way of cultivating a child’s natural curiosity by bringing the subject matter to life (movie adaptation of books) and through gamification—our community is obsessed with earning Litcoin and winning monthly tournaments.
How does the Litnerd Reading Club work?
When you join Litnerd, your child is auto-enrolled in a cohort. They are also auto-enrolled in the current reading tournament of the month.
The goal is to earn the most amount of Litcoin so that you can win tournaments and go shopping in the Litnerd Store.
To earn Litcoin, your child:
Reads daily for at least 15 minutes
Tackles daily reading tasks, such as quizzes and worksheets to build vocabulary and comprehension.
Attend a weekly live (virtual) meetup with their cohort
The average kid is spending 30 minutes a day reading on Litnerd!
Kids improved comprehension by 72% in only 4 months of Litnerd usage.
Kids improved phonics knowledge by 48% in only 4 months of Litnerd usage.
Dive in Deeper to Litnerd
The Litnerd Reading Club is a community experience with a weekly meetup. This ensures kids using the app feel like they are in a classroom or pod experience. Each child is entered into a cohort when they enroll, and each week your child will meet virtually with other kids in their cohort and discuss the book they are reading with our special guest (which might be a Litnerd author, an actor from the movie adaptation, a literacy coach.)
