So I've never heard of this reading program, and I'm pretty skeptical by nature, so I wanted to see if anyone else has heard of it or has an opinion of it? It passed through my FB feed today and I usually just brush right past these advertisements about how your kid needs (blank) lessons, but it played a bit of the video- and I couldn't help but pause and watch the rest because I feel like he just described my second child to a T. Bright but gets by by memorizing a lot. Some days she reads medium level nonfiction about aircrafts and others she struggles to read a Level 1 Sofia the First Disney Jr book with 5 words per page, you know? She's constantly missing the shortest and most simple words. I hate the idea of spending more money to outsource her reading, but it's really lost its joy for her. She loves to listen to audiobooks like Matilda and Secret Garden and Little Princess and Ella Enchanted and the Ramona series (over and over and over again....), but just won't bother if she has to read anything herself. She spends hours looking at picture books and asking me to read to her. I do, because I know she won't always want me to read with her and I enjoy spending the time with her (and all my other kiddos). I think she'd LOVE reading if I could just get her more fluent, but it's like pulling teeth to even get 2 minutes of focused reading out of her. She's only in 1st grade, but I'm at a loss as to what's going on, when she's bright enough (she learned to read music over a year ago and has taught herself piano), but says reading is so hard, despite an obvious love of books.
ETA Totally forgot to attach the link!
