Is your child struggling to learn to read?
- Not recognizing words even after repeated attempts to learn them
- Stuck in decoding trying to sound out every word
- Can't blend sounds to form a word
- Reversing, substituting, adding, or omitting sounds in words
- Weak on letter sounds, especially vowel sounds
- Very slow reading, or not reading at all
- Falling behind classmates in reading expectations
We can help! Our multi-sensory teaching tools are the result of many years of painstaking research with all types of learners.
All our teaching/learning materials are especially designed so that they utilize several channels to the brain simultaneously. In addition to the auditory component, images are embedded in the symbols to appeal to visual learners, motions are purposefully tied to the specific learning piece in order to engage the kinesthetic/tactile learners. We use patterns, stories, rhymes and all this combines to create successful learning for all types of struggling learners. We see results in children when all other means have failed.
STYLIZED ALPHABET and ALPHABET TALES, 26 charming tales that link sound and symbol instantly and unforgettably. No more tedious memorization!
306 STYLIZED SIGHT WORDScreate alternate pathways to the brain for those who struggle with memorizing symbols. On the reverse of each card is the plain word, a body motion and a sentence to help in comprehension. The added benefit of the visuals is that children are able to easily create mental images of words along with their meaning. All kids enjoy these, but they are critically important for children who cannot rely on their left brain for learning to read.
EASY-FOR-ME READING program - a systematic, sequential approach to phonics instruction that while providing explicit phonics instruction, also very specifically engages all the modalities in the learning process, incorporates the specific "tracing" concept for every sound and word learned (except so much better, as the children write with colored markers on whiteboards as they say the sounds, see themselves writing the sounds, and feel the shape of the sounds they are writing) - in short, the Easy-For-Me Reading program closes the gaps for many kinds of learners who would otherwise be left behind. Teachers or parents need only follow the sequence in each lesson carefully and the guesswork is taken out of the task of teaching to non-traditional learners. This approach addresses the needs of right brained, left brained, global, visual, kinesthetic learners and as such is a gold mine for people who are working with children who do not learn to read in the traditional way.
EASY-FOR-ME DECODABLE BOOKS provide reading practice as early as Lesson 20 in the EASY-FOR-ME Reading Program. For those children who need to understand the purpose behind the details they are learning, who need to use their knowledge in order to understand why they are learning it, giving them a chance to read 7 books when they have learned just 7 sounds results in rapid progress into reading fluency.
