Scholastic.com has great information if you want something to do at home. If you are looking for a supplement to school, we did Kumon Reading and had terrific success. They have a Junior program, too.
If you think your son has a problem with reading, check with your school district - they also have alot of resources. Good luck!

There is a phonological awareness class offered through the hearing and speech department at Children's Mercy South. This is more of a prereading class. It is for 4 year olds through 1st grade. Some of the skills taught in the first level are about 10 letter sounds, rhyming, and beginning sound. The second level builds on the first. They give a pretest to see where your child is and then at the end there is a posttest to show the improvement. If you're interested or want more information the phone number is ###-###-####.
