Take a peek inside! 

Did you know that most reading programs for kids out there 
haven’t changed in over 30 years?

Yet the way children learn best has changed dramatically.

Hundreds of studies have shown how hands-on, kinesthetic learning is far more powerful for children than the traditional, test-based learning we grew up with.

In fact, it’s been proven that play and enjoyment of the lesson produce a stronger memory event in the brain, helping kids learn faster and remember better.

That’s also why classrooms are evolving to adapt their layout, seating arrangement, and schedules to better support child learning!

So the question is… why haven’t our reading programs changed?

Most programs out there still follow the same boring, repetitive steps:

1. Learn letter and sound combinations
2. Read flash cards with sight words
3. Read paragraphs that use those sight words
4. Write each word 10 times
5. Take a reading test
6. Repeat until they’re successful

The problem with these programs is clear: they’re no fun for kids!

So naturally, they come to dread every reading lesson, get bored and frustrated, and even leave in tears.

No wonder so many parents are struggling with kids that hate reading.

  • It’s a fight to get their kids to even read their 20 minutes a night for homework.
  • Kids drag their feet and parents feel like they have to resort to bribing or even threatening just to get in that little bit each day.
  • Reading has become a battle instead of the adventure, exploration, and wonder we want it to be.

Yet, how can we expect something different when a child’s first exposure to reading is a bland page of text that they are forced to read, over and over again, day after day.

It’s not that kids weren’t excited to learn how to read. It’s that we made it so awful that they lost their interest in reading.

This is exactly what I saw when I was teaching reading in a K-2 elementary school years ago.

I worked with dozens of children across multiple classes and grade levels. 

I was given the reading program that the school had been using for 20 years, and the kids didn’t like it.

One 5-year-old boy I was working with dreaded reading so much he would do just about anything to get out of it.

I tried to be as fun and engaging as I could as a person, but when I told him one day we had to read at least one page of his reader before we could do anything else, he turned to me with big tears in his eyes and said, “I thought you were my friend.” 😥

I was heartbroken. How could reading, something I loved so much, be so painful, so awful for this child. What were we missing?

There had to be a better way to teach kids to read.

I went home that weekend on a mission to find a way to take the pain out of learning to read, to make it playful, fun, and something kids actually enjoyed.

Over the years, with the help of educators with more than 40 years of teaching experience, I developed an all new way to learn to read.

Based on phonics, kids become master readers and spellers, able to decode and read all kinds of complex words…

While playing with blocks, beads, playdough, action figures, and other toys they love.
