    • USED

    I have four levels of the Barton Reading and Spelling System for sale. I streamed all of the videos, so the DVDs are new and never have been used. Tiles included in all sets. I used sheet protectors on the Student Sheets, so those are unmarked and included as well. The only sheets that have marking on the are the progress testing sheets on Level 3 I think. Prices do not include shipping. Level 1- $225- Like new, in original box. Two sets of tiles included, DVDs, manual, and unopened student game sheets. Level 2- $225- Extremely good condition, in original box. One set of tiles, DVDs, manual, blue and yellow student sheets. Only "defect" is a waved page in the manual due to me setting a glass of water with condensation on it. There are slight ripples on the bottom right quadrant of that page, but no staining, and page is fully readable. Level 3- $275- Extremely good condition, in original box. One set of tiles, DVDs, manual, blue and yellow student sheets. No defects. As this level is longer there may be slight wear on the manual and some of the student sheets, but it really is in fantastic shape. Level 4- $275- New in box. Box has been opened, but nothing in program has been used. Contains shrink-wrapped manual and student sheets, Spelling Ace Pro still in original wrapping, unopened DVDs (did not come shrink wrapped, but have never been opened or used), and tiles. Due to the number and expense of materials, I will be happy to film a video and upload a private link on YouTube to show a flip through of the materials if interested. Seems easier and better than uploading pictures. I would prefer to use UPS over USPS, and can provide shipping estimate upon offer. If you buy all four levels, I will pay/include shipping. I also have Foundations in Sounds I would be happy to throw in free if you are buying all four levels. It is also in excellent condition. You would need to contact FiS about access to the videos, as I bought it with the streaming option so I don't have any DVDs. They'll be able to tell you if you can get access or not. Everything that came in the original box is included. To make an offer or more info, please email me (do not PM here- I will not see it) at bartonseller2021 at gmail dot com If you know someone not on this forum who would be interested, feel free to pass along! I am not picky. I will require cleared payment before shipping due to the value of these sets. I am listing on other forums as well, and hoping to get these cleared out quickly.

  2. I just posted for sale ads for level 4 and level 5 of the Barton Reading and Spelling System on the classified board. Teri
  3. While DD8 is still undergoing testing, I have seen enough and read enough of other materials that my gut is telling me it's time to order Barton. Is there is any reason I should consider holding off until the testing is finished? The current testing is through the local school and a private eval initial appointment isn't for a few months yet. The school psych wants to run 8 different tests or subtests, but we have only completed 2 of them so far and I haven't heard yet how many he hopes to get through this week (it took 3 meetings that were 1-2 hours each to get through the first 2 tests because the reading, writing, and spelling were so hard for DD, but she got through the math and logic/puzzles much easier/quicker). Also, when ordering level 1, should I order extra tiles for that level? I know the other levels you want to order extra, but I wasn't sure if it really mattered for level 1. They appear to be blank colored tiles that I could easily substitute with blank math tiles.
  4. I bit the bullet and bought Level 1 and 2 of Barton on eBay. Unfortunately, I found out that the Level 1 set is a counterfeit and as such, does not gain me access to the tutor support, etc. Of course, I will be sending it back and buying again, either new, or from a verified seller. Anyway, I just wanted to give everyone a head's up and hopefully save somebody the frustration! Heather
  5. Those words came out of the mouth of Squirrelboy's teacher today at our first quarter conference. I'm not sure "thrilled" is a strong enough word to express how I feel about his current progress in school. Yeah, public school still makes me want to bang my head against the wall sometimes, but it's not because my kid is miserable and not learning. It's all thanks him learning to read well with Barton at the awesome tutoring center we started sending him to in kindergarten. The also helped math click with him after just one semester of a special math program for dyslexics. I am so thankful that we found this place and had the resources to send Squirrelboy, because his story could be so different if either of those weren't true. My hat goes off to those of you who successful remediate your special needs kids at home, but I know that with our personalities that wouldn't have been successful with my particular kid, so I'm glad there was another option that has worked so amazingly well.
  6. Last year DD12 was assessed and diagnosed with stealth dyslexia and dysgraphia. She is a voracious reader, so the psychologist believes that she has basically memorized thousands of word shapes in order to read. She re-reads books multiple times, so we think that she's basically picking up more each time she reads it through, although her comprehension was in the 95th percentile. The recommendations on her report were to get a COVD exam and possible treatment, an OT eval for visual-motor integration and fine motor coordination difficulties, and “a reading and writing tutor that focuses upon the visual and kinesthetic difficulties associated with reading, spelling, and written production.†There suggestion is a program such as Slingerland. We started with a COVD exam, thinking that we wanted to get the physical processes in place before we worked on mental. She started VT last spring and recently finished. Now we need to figure out what to do next. I'm leaning towards the reading remediation rather than OT for financial reasons. Since a private tutor also isn't in the cards for right now, I was thinking about using Barton. But I'm wondering if her ability to sight-read everything make that a bad idea? Would it interfere with her ability to re-learn? Part of me thinks it would at least be worth a try, especially since I can re-sell when we're done. Any thoughts or other suggestions?
  7. Since everyone has been SO incredibly helpful, I have another question! Because I don't have access at the moment to "getting my hands on" any actual curriculum to 'flip through it', I am relying on 1) looking at it online (reading, watching videos, etc) and 2) reviews from awesome people who have used it! Now, I do realize that there is *nothing* anywhere that will work for *everyone*.....BUT..... I would love some honest 'been there, done that' opinions :) So, this will be my first year to homeschool my boys. DS1 age 8 and DS2 age 6 at start of school (would be grades 2 and 1 in Public School). DS1 has formal diagnosis of Severe Dyslexia and Dysgraphia; I suspect some level of "Dys" for DS2. DS1 is reading at about a Level 1 easy reader level (just higher that Bob books). I am looking at either Math U See or Life of Fred for a math curriculum......comparisons?? Benefits of one over the other for my boys? And, for remediation / language arts I am looking at Barton Reading or Saxon or LiPS (not sure my boys would need that based on reading some of the other threads.....)??? Anyone able to compare these?
  8. Just finished (finally) administering the Barton reading screening to my boys. DS1, who has diagnosed Severe-Profound dyslexia did quite well (a good fit for using the Barton system). BUT......Holy Moly..... DS2, who I suspect has some level of "dys", COMPLETELY failed - ALL Tasks :( Task A - counting words - he tried to count either sounds or syllables (even after re-explaining) insead of words. Then, Task B - clapping syllables - he could some of the time clap the syllables (but again, sometimes did sounds, instead of syllables), but could NOT correctly state the number (and number was ALL over the place (which, btw, is why I have been suspecting Dyscalculia)). And, finally, on Task C: Compare 3 Sounds - he could correctly repeat the sounds AND know if they were different or same....BUT REALLY had trouble visualizing / translating that onto sequencing the colored squares. So, now, I am pretty sure we will have to start at some VERY VERY basics for DS2 (as well as begin the formal testing procedures) like LiPS (are there any other basic programs that work well). He knows his letters AND can associate the correct sounds to letters, but somehow when doing a "more complex task" (like assigning the sound to a color and then putting it into a sequence) he really really struggles. And, for what it's worth, he actually said (during the beginning of task C) "Right when you say it, I forget it" - which tells me his working memory is a BIG BIG issue :( Is it even going to be possible for me to do Barton (reading) and RightStart (math) with DS1, LiPS ("reading") and Ronit Bird (math) with DS2??? I know it would be lots of individual instruction for each of them.....But, cost is the other factor :(
  9. Is there anyone that can compare Barton with SWR? Anyone tried both? If this has been discussed before I apologize. I couldn't find any threads specifically about the differences between the two. :)
  10. I'm currently doing Barton Reading and Spelling with Daisy, my 12 year old. It's going well and we're just starting Level Two. I'm also currently planning our next year's curriculum and literature selections and wanting to guesstimate which books she'll be able to read independently and which we'll do as family read-alouds. I'm also just a planner and like to know exactly where we're headed with things :) Anyway, so I'm curious. what grade level were your children reading at, or what books were they reading, after each level of Barton?
  11. I need to ask about timing. i know that Susan Barton recommends starting IEW right after completing Level 4. Only we won't finish Level 4, I don't think, until the beginning of May. I intended to start Level 5 in mid-May and carry it through the summer, along with math and typing, but take a break from everything else while the kids attended several educational and extra curricular day camps they would like to participate in. I would really prefer not to add in an intense writing program through the summer. Would it mess up using Level 5 if we don't start IEW until near the end of that level instead of the beginning? I can't find anything on the site that tells me.
  12. Which one would you use? I'm considering these 3 options. Our 8 yr old just finishing 2nd grade just diagnosed with Dyslexia ... reads at about end of 1st grade level according to the psychologist we saw.
  13. OK, Barton experts, I need your help! I received a used copy of Barton Reading & Spelling Level 3 today. Bought it from the people who sent me Levels 1 and 2. Both of those were fine/complete. But I am hyperventilating a little that the Level 3 I received only has 14 red tiles (w/3 letters on each) plus a blue tile and a green one. Where is the entire blue and yellow alphabet that was in Level 2? Shouldn't Level 3 come with its own set of the full alphabet so you can sell back Level 2 and have Level 3 be complete? It is also missing the word card w/the cut out and the large index card. I can make those, so not a biggie, but I'm freaking out about the letter tiles since you can't buy extras from Barton if you bought used. Please let me know if I am an idiot and this is how the level should be (the Barton Web site doesn't list exactly what comes with each level) or if I got scammed. EEK! Christina
  14. Hi, ladies, I am writing to ask if anyone is a current Barton Level 3 user or has used it recently enough to confirm for me what tiles it should come with. I just bought Level 3 used (from the person who sold me Levels 1 and 2 without incident). Well it arrived today with only 14 red tiles plus a green and blue one. It doesn't have any of the 26+ blue/yellow alphabet tiles but clearly you need them for Level 3, per the TM. So, does Barton Level 3 only come with those red/blue/green tiles and expect you to use your alphabet tiles from Level 2? Or did I just get royally screwed on this purchase?? I'm hyperventilating over here so please, somebody tell me what's what!! Thanks, Christina
  15. Hi, ladies, I am new to this board, having just put the pieces together this week that my ds (almost 9) is dyslexic. Not officially diagnosed b/c we are hoping to be moving soon, but he ticks all of the boxes. So here is my question for the experts: is Barton's grammar complete enough that I can raise money to buy it by selling back my set of MCT Island level grammar books? My son is halfway through 3rd grade, if that helps. Thanks for any advice you've got! Christina
  16. I'm really thinking about trying this out next year w/ 5th grade dyslexic ds. He's been through Barton level 5, so he's seen all these rules before (in fact AAS looks eerily like Barton to me). I suppose my hesitation is this: his spelling improved very little using Barton. He can *know* the rule, and yet fails to apply it in writing. Same for decoding, but that's another story. :001_smile: I suppose I get to a point where I wonder if I should still keep drilling, drilling, drilling for spelling, or if I should let it go and focus on more productive endeavors. I'm wanting to hear experiences of people using AAS, good and bad. Have you seen improvement? Is it worth the time and cost to you? Have you tried it and moved on to something that's working better? :confused: I'm also trying to figure out Apples and Pears, so feel free to comment on that too.
