Hello, I would like to give you an update on Mary Ann’s progress after six weeks into the program.

Mary Ann is re reading the lines of the story until it is fluent. (almost fluent on first try, always on second).

We saw a remarkable jump in Mary Ann’s reading progress at the 30 day point in the program. She is 8 years old and has in the past treated chapter books like toxic waste (no pictures), but we’ve read three together in the past two weeks! We trade out chapters. At thirty days she suddenly started to sound out everything, even sight words she’s had memorized for the past three years. It is like being with a different child.

But the biggest difference we’ve seen is that she no longer goes into total angry, sullen mode every time we mention reading. She is a very happy, easy going child and yet reading was the big bone of contention between us for two years. I don’t know how or why, but Easyread is always no big deal, she is always happy to do it, so, frankly, I don’t much care how you do it!! We are in a much more peaceful household now.

Your research seems to show that a big jump in progress usually takes place at the 90 day mark. If it gets better than it is so far I cannot wait for that.
