Build Foundational Reading Skills
This summer reading program is about targeting and building the foundational skills that are necessary to become a successful reader. If you are looking for a basic reading program that is just reading and answering questions, this is not it.
This summer reading program focuses on building phonemic awareness, reading fluency, comprehension, and improving the ability to decode and encode words. We work on visualization, note taking, critical thinking, and more.
When you take a holistic approach to reading, you can dramatically improve your reading skills not just in school, but in life.
Improving fluency is one of the most important things you can do to improve reading skills. In our summer reading program, you will get our specially designed reading drills to improve your reading speed and accuracy.
Planning and body movement activities are part of the program. When the mind and body are working together in tandem, better progress can be made.
Spelling has an inverse relationship to reading. Spelling relates to encoding or putting letters to sounds, whereas reading relates to decoding. We use a multi-sensory (visual, auditory, tactile) approach to spelling.
We incorporate activities to improve your ability to understand, analyze, synthesize, and use what you have read. This approach boosts student’s comprehension at impressive rates.
There is a direct correlation between the brain-body, reading, and overall learning. When the mind and body are working together in tandem, reading, writing, concentration, and memory improve.
Mastering phonics is essential to becoming a great reader and speller. We incorporate multi-sensory encoding and decoding activities throughout the program.

What do parents say?
My sonâs reading skills have gone up tremendously. I canât believe we saw progress in three days, just like you told me I would! You know, Iâve been homeschooling my son for 4 years and he had never picked up a book to read on his own. It was such a struggle to get him to want to read. I have to tell you, three weeks after working with the video lessons, we went to the library, and my son actually picked out 3 chapter books to read. In fact, he wouldnât put the first book down until he finished it.

The videos made all the difference in the world. The spelling videos showed me step by step the structure. You really made spelling easy for my kids. I just keep working with the video, the spelling, the way you explain it, they watch it over and over. It really sinks in. Your materials help build their self-esteem up. Theyâre short quick activities. You can get so much done in half an hour.
