My younger son just turned 6. He's been slow to get to that point of being ready to read - things just didn't "click" with him as early as they did with my older son. We've been playing the games on and off as a means of me seeing how much is sticking with him. I can tell that he's now ready, and I'm so excited (as is he) to dive into reading and see the results this year. Thanks so much for a wonderful program.

The books are wonderful because they are phonics based, which helps the students to have success. The words in the games are tied to the books, which also helps to promote success. I loved what I experienced in working with this program. All of my students were reading at grade level by the end of the year. I attribute this to this wonderful program.
Brenda K.’s 10-yr old son had tracking problems, possible dyslexia, was reading at .8 reading level, and didn't know all of the consonants.
Brenda ordered the Go Phonics Kit at the end of April to work with her son over the summer. He was 10 years old going from 4th into 5th grade and was testing out at a .8 reading level. At that time, he didn't know all of his consonants, had tracking problems, and had possible dyslexia. On the last day of August, Brenda called and exclaimed in delight “We just finished the program with the last story, Soup for the King, and we’re celebrating tonight by having soup. I never would have believed it was possible at the beginning of the summer. I didn’t know what I was going to do if this program didn’t work. But we worked very hard on it over the summer and it did work! And now I want to order another set of workbooks for my second grade daughter. I’m going to have my son help with the instruction---because you retain it so much more when you have to teach it to someone else.”
When asked how her 10-year old felt about playing the games and reading the books: "He loved the games, and the stories were interesting and sometimes very appropriate. We took a trip to Yellowstone this summer and the story about Yellowstone Park fit right in. He didn't feel this material talked down to him at all."
Sample Feedback from Home Educators:
"This is a tremendous program. The lesson guides have been very clear. It's all right there. My daughter has really glommed on to the games. That's been the winner! What really makes it for us is the games." Shirley Hein, parent -- Alaska
"My 2nd grader went from a kindergarten level to reading at a 2nd grade level in just one year. My kingergartener went from Level 1-Learning the Alphabet, to the middle of Level 2-Short Vowels in just 3 months." Emily Crook, parent -- Alaska
"My 5-year old daughter was really struggling. I even have a Slingerland teaching background. But without the materials to go with my training, it was difficult to make progress. Then I started teaching her with Go Phonics. It compliments my Slingerland training. She is learning her letters and beginning to read. This program really works! " Nancy Winniford, parent -- Alaska
"I'm thrilled with this product. This has been absolute fun--- especially if you have a resistant child with possible dyslexia. Having Go Phonics makes it a lot easier. I’m just a mom and I don’t have the credentials for doing this, but I am actually teaching my child to read." Gayle Stoops, parent -- Michigan
"I like the way you teach one sound at a time and that each game focuses on just one sound. Thanks to this program, my son is no longer in remedial reading and is making great progress." Debbie V., parent -- Washington
"Go Phonics is wonderful! My children love everything about the program. I am homeschooling my 3 children (2nd, 1st and K-5) and I am able to teach them all together. Thank you so much." Dawn Smoke -- Alabama
