Child Reviews of Easyread
Alex wanted to let you know that he has gone up a stage in his reading book at school and he is really pleased.
Anne in particular wants to thank you for providing such an excellent course. She is a happy reader. – K
The system is fun, I like the games especially letter quest and fighter mission and rhyme time too. The books are good but I like the next shelf available and I want to be able to read more if I want to each night. As Mom told you we had a few problems decoding, DNA had the duck, uncle, nun, and ant, we didn’t understand the uncle so we couldn’t decode it. I still can’t spell well but Mom says that should come so wait and see. I am enjoying logging in every night and me and my sister play with the secret spy gadgets you send me all the time, thanks a lot, Savannah.
Thank you so much. I enjoy the games. My favorite is the typerace and eggi.
I’m spelling better back in the classroom
I was glad to get your note. Level 6 will be harder words, but I’m ready for it.
I like to read books that talk about animals.
I really like eggi and the fight mission game.
Thank you for your help.
Lovely message from 10 year-old Liam (lesson 108)
“I have been having fun with all my activities. I am enjoying it so much that I want to do it more than once a day. Easyread is getting easy for me, it is helping me with my reading. Thanks for showing my Mum this program.”
This has really been helping me with my reading. I think that Easyread is a great program to help kids learn to read. Hopefully you get tons of more kids. I think that is it. Bye!
I have no problem being committed to doing Easyread lessons every day because it is so fun.
A message from 9 year-old Anne:
“Hi there. I was thinking since you make Easy Read SO!!!!!! fun that I’m sure you could make a great Easy Math program. I also wanted to let you know that you make a great job of making it SUPERRRRRRR!!!!! fun. Anne”
We would LOVE to create a maths programme to help struggling mathematicians too. It’s all in the pipeline…
Before Easyread || When I realized Ian was not progressing in reading, I knew to contact Easyread because his sister completed the program two years ago. Both he and his sister have attention issues, so Easyread’s short daily lessons are perfect for their attention spans. I witnessed a complete turnaround from the stressed boy saying, “I just can’t read this” before Easyread. At school, Ian would cry almost everyday during his reading group and he strongly disliked reading to me at home (tears and tantrums!).
The Easyread Process || The easiest part of coaching both of my children through Easyread is the program itself. The lessons and games are fun and engaging. I love the library of books that has been added since my daughter completed the program. It is so nice to have book choices for different personalities.
The hardest part of Easyread may be pushing through the lessons after the novelty wears off for your child. We began doing lessons daily, until my little negotiator Ian decided he needed a break on every zero lesson (50, 60, 70, etc.). Eventually, Ian and I began doing Easyread Sunday – Thursday, skipping on Friday and Saturday, as he completed his school year. With Ian I also had to give him high-five praise more than verbal praise because the verbal praise broke his concentration.
Results || In mid-January, Ian was on D level for classroom reading. He had ended his kindergarten year on C level, so he had only progressed one level in a full semester of first grade without Easyread. His school’s goal for the end of first grade is J level. But at Ian’s last evaluation in mid-May, he was reading on I level (and almost passed his J level!). His teacher was amazed at how he progressed after we began Easyread at home.
Easyread has made Ian believe he is a reader. He wants to decode the words himself and gets frustrated if I help him!
I view reading not only as essential for learning, but also something I want my children to enjoy for life. Easyread has helped both of my children reach goals to help them feel more confident at school and home. Ian’s sister now reads 200+ page books and I have to tell her to stop reading and go to bed. I frequently tell parents and teachers about Easyread because I have witnessed the program’s effectiveness twice!
